umphreysmcgeetenk @AndyShore Having just seen two Umphrey’s McGee late night shows at Rothbury, I was very disappointed that they were playing an early evening set at 10klf. Jeff Waful is masterful with that light rig, and I was bummed that he would not be given the opportunity to use it. However, I always look forward to an Umphrey’s show, no matter the circumstances. After catching the last few songs of Ozomatli’s set, I met up with the rest of our crew to find our spot for Umphrey’s and Dave Matthews Band and prepare for the awesome night of music ahead.

 

Despite not getting to shoot their lights, I looked forward to taking pictures of Umphrey’s. Jake Cinninger has some great guitar moves that make him quite photogenic. I didn’t have to wait long for him to rip up his ax as they opened with “Wappy Sprayberry.” Next, I was happy to see one of the new tunes off Mantis up close, as they played “Spires.” I was a little bummed that it was unfinished and I missed out on the Beach Boys’ harmonies at the end.

 

I made my way back to our group spot in time for an “FF” that featured a Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsies’ “Who Knows” jam. Going along with the theme of being disappointed in unfinished songs, Umphrey’s left out the hard rocking third part of “Pay the Snucka.” During a “Ringo” > “Ocean Billy” > “Ringo” sandwich, we decided to grab some dinner. From all the way across the field, while in line, we listened and sang along to a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.”

 

Getting back to our spot, we made it just in time to hear another new Mantis tune, “1348.” After “The Fuzz,” Umphrey’s made their way back into “Ocean Billy” to close out their set. I had anticipated much less jamming, considering Umphrey’s was warming up the main stage for DMB. To their credit, they played a set true to their form. It was an enjoyable set, despite the fact that it didn’t include most of my Umphrey’s McGee favorites.
