Marla Joy and Darren Shearer Join Umphrey’s
Last night Umphrey’s McGee crossed the border for a performance in Toronto at The Mod Club. Two area musicians guested with the group during the course of the evening. First up was New Deal drummer Darren Shearer, who stepped in for Kris Myers during the jam “In The Kitchen,” which closed out the first set. Then, near the end of set two, Marla Joy joined in the action, lending lead vocals to a cover of the Guns N’ Roses classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” which Umphrey’s last performed on 12/2/06.
Tonight, Umphrey’s McGee returns to the U.S. for a show in Kalamazoo.
