Final Trancegressions

The second leg of the Disco Biscuits and Umphrey’s McGee’s D.U.M.B. tour concluded over the weekend at Copper Mountain, CO’s Trancegression Festival. The Disco Biscuits and Umphrey’s McGee swapped closing duties each night, with the latter group finishing things out Sunday and the former act headlining Saturday. A number of other acts also performed throughout the weekend, including JJ Grey and MOFRO, Lotus, Blackalicious, DJ Harry, the Greyboy Allstars, Hot Buttered Rum, Zilla The Pharcyde, Galactic and Pnuma, who offered a Live PA set. As they have on occasion throughout the D.U.M.B. tour, the Biscuits and Umphrey’s shared Sundays encore. The segment opened with UM’s Brendan Bayliss and Andy Farag helping the Biscuits through their first version of Mahavishnu Orchestra’s ‘Resolution’ since October, 2004. The song then segued into a full band switch culminating with the Disco Biscuits’ Jon Gutwillig leading Umphrey’s McGee through his own ‘Svengali.’
Finally, Umphrey’s McGee wrapped up the weekend’s mainstage festivities with a version of their own ‘Syncopated Strangers.’
