The Umphrey’s McGee/Lettuce mini-tour concluded last night at Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore. Umphrey’s encore featured another collaboration as Nigel Hall and Eric Bloom sat-in on a Herbie Hancock cover in Charm City.

Following Lettuce’s opening set and a headlining set from Umphrey’s, the Chicago jam act came out for their encore with Hall and Bloom. The sextet and their guests proceeded to cover Herbie Hancock’s “Hang Up Your Hang Ups,” which Umphrey’s first covered this past New Year’s Eve in Atlanta and three times since including last night.
