Umphrey’s McGee to Perform Intimate Church Set at Summer Camp
In addition to three headlining shows at this year’s Summer Camp Festival, Umphrey’s McGee will also perform an intimate VIP set at Three Sisters Church followed by a BBQ picnic with the band. According to a statement posted to the band’s blog, the church will be the smallest venue the band has played in the last 10 years.
A statement from Umphrey’s keyboardist Joel Cummins reads:
This is your chance to feel what it was like to see the band in 2001 (in a church no less). The tiny venue also means we’ll be on our practice gear, which you might remember seeing from the hurricane ravaged Mulberry Mountain set or during the sick Wizard Burial Ground in the cooking section of Ann Arbor’s Borders. Good things seem to happen when we break it all down.
I should also mention that we’re going to play something for you there that we haven’t played in a long time. Original or cover bust out…...hmmm…..I think we’ll keep you hanging on that for the moment. We’ll be taking a request or two as well so in theory, anything could happen.
