“When the chance to play an acoustic piano comes up, it always takes me back to my roots. In the spirit of Everyone Orchestra, I’ll be opening for the EO in NYC on Saturday with a short set of improvisational solo piano and perhaps an Umphrey’s McGee song or two. Can’t wait to play for you New York!” Cummins said in a statement announcing his set.

The Everyone Orchestra lineup for Saturday’s show conducted by Matt Butler features Cummins, Schmeeans of Lettuce, Ashish Vyas of Thievery Corp, Jen Hartswick, Natalie Cressman, and Russ Lawton of Trey Anastasio Band and Cris Jacobs of The Bridge. Tickets are currently available via CEG Presents.
