“Umphrey’s McGee and their fans have been huge supporters of Conscious Alliance for over a decade now,” said Conscious Alliance executive director Justin Levy. “Together we provided relief for those affected by Hurricane Katrina and provided thousands of meals to those in need nation-wide on multiple tours. Their continued commitment to Conscious Alliance helped us surpass 2 million meals distributed to those most in need. We are thrilled to kick off 2016 with Umphrey’s at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, where Conscious Alliance hosted its inaugural ‘Art That Feeds’ Food Drive in 2002.”
“We’ve been incredibly fortunate to have many of the opportunities we have had over the years,” said Kevin Browning of Umphrey’s McGee management. “Umphrey’s is always keen to pair with like minded partners to help give back to those who who haven’t been as fortunate. Conscious Alliance has been proactively working with UM and many others over the years to do just that, and we’re proud to continue our decade plus relationship with them. With Mountain Hardwear on board this year to up the ante, we’ll be starting the New Year in style at our ‘Reel To Real’ event and doing some good in the process.”
The benefit will start with a happy hour complete with “libations and sustenance.” Then UM will screen a career-spanning retrospective film in which the group will debut previously unseen footage from their camcorder archives taking those at in attendance on “a visual journey into the early touring years of the band.” Following the film, Umphrey’s will offer fans a performance of original compositions accompanied by the stories behind them. The band advises to “think Storytellers meets Behind The Music.”
