Umphrey’s McGee Members Join The Werks In Columbus & Pittsburgh

Advertisement

Chicago-based Umphrey’s McGee held a pair of concerts last week with The Werks on board as opening act. Thursday night at Express Live! in Columbus, Ohio was a home state affair for the openers and Friday’s concert at Stage AE was a return home for UM bassist and Pittsburgh-native Ryan Stasik. Each night of the pair of performances began with a member of Umphrey’s McGee sitting-in with The Werks.

Thursday night saw UM guitarist Jake Cinninger joining in on The Werks original “Onslaught.” Friday’s opening set by guitarist Chris Houser, bassist Jake Goldberg, drummer Rob Chafin and keyboardist Dan Shaw was augmented by UM keyboardist Joel Cummins on their performance of “Galactic Passport.”

Below is audience-shot video of Cinninger’s sit-in Thursday in Columbus, followed by audio of both guest-supported opening sets:
