Umphrey’s Debut Nate Dogg Cover
Last night, Umphrey’s McGee nodded to their Los Angeles surroundings by debuting a cover of Long Beach, CA rapper Nate Dogg’s “I Got Love” at West Hollywood, CA’s House of Blues. For the number, the group was joined by their old friend Clayton Halsey on vocals.
The band busted into “I Got Love” partway through a version of “Der Bluten Kat” that wrapped up their first set. That show also closed with a rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “The Song Remains The Same.” With the exception of a show-opening “There’s No Crying In Mexico,” the rest of the band’s setlist was decidedly old school.
Umphrey’s McGee will kick off a spring tour at Charleston, SC’s Music Farm on April 10.
