Umphrey’s McGee Introduces New Songs at Summer Camp

As previously reported, the members of Umphrey’s McGee performed with Huey Lewis as Huey Lewis and the rUMors at Chillicothe, IL’s Summer Camp yesterday. Earlier in the weekend the group delivered two additional shows under its own name. Near the end of Friday’s set, Umphrey’s busted into the new original song “Hourglass.” A few songs later, Big Gigantic saxophonist Dominic Lalli emerged for a set-closing take on Radiohead’s “National Anthem.” The next night the members of Umphrey’s McGee debuted both “Puppet String” during its first set and “Forks” during its second set.

The band also turned in a memorable encore with the help of Mad Dog’s Filthy Little Secret horns. The segment included a take on “Booth Love” as well as a new cover of Paul McCartney’s “Live and Let Die.”

Let me just say that Puppet String was a sick new addition for the weekend. Also National Anthem was awesom again, they played it 3rd night of NYE run in Chicago and it sounded a little better that night due to being inside at rivera. Cheers
