During its late night set at Auburn, IN’s Indiana Jam Bash Thursday, Vince Herman jumped onstage, adding to a vocal jam during FGC’s organ driven instrumental, ‘Byron’s Got the Time.’ Then, on Saturday, during Family Groove Company’s set at Urbana, IL’s Canopy Club, Umphrey’s McGee’s drummer Kris Myers joined FGC for an inspired rendition of the jazz/funk classic, ‘The Chicken.’ Myers was on hand at the Canopy to perform with his side project, Drop Q.
