Huey Lewis will lead a special band at this year’s Summer Camp. In addition to the News frontman on vocals and harmonica, Huey Lewis and the rUMors will feature all of Umphrey’s McGee, a full horn section and backing vocalists. The band promises to play a variety of Umphrey’s originals, Lewis classics and covers.

Lewis first performed with Umphrey’s McGee at the 2005 Jammys. He has collaborated with the members of Umphrey’s McGee numerous times over the past six years and sat in with the group on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2006.

Summer Camp will return to Chillicothe, IL from May 27-29. The festival will announce a handful of artist additions later today.
