Umphrey’s McGee Shares ‘Wappy Sprayberry’ > ‘Front Porch’ From ‘Wrapped Around Nashville’: Pro-Shot Video
Umphrey’s McGee concluded a three-night run of “Wrapped Around Nashville” livestream concerts originating from drummer Kris Myers‘ Rocktopus’ Garden home studio in Nashville on Saturday. The sextet is offering discounted on-demand replays of all three shows via Mandolin and unveiled video featuring the “Wappy Sprayberry”/”Front Porch” pairing that kicked off the final set as a preview.
Thursday's show began with an electric set featuring songs selected by fans and Friday's show started with a fan-voted acoustic set. On Saturday, viewers participated by voting in realtime for a choose-your-own adventure style first set.
Umphrey’s went with “Wappy Sprayberry” to get Saturday’s second frame underway. The 11-minute version bled into one of the band’s oldest originals, “Front Porch.” UM blew past the song’s typical structure to embark on ethereal improvisation. A blissful jam was built to a frothy peak featuring fretboard fireworks aplenty from guitarist Jake Cinninger before Umphrey’s brought “Front Porch” to a close.
