Umphrey’s McGee celebrated Independence Day a night early this year. During their performance at Grand Rapids, MI’s Frederik Meijer Gardens last night, the Midwest jam-titans busted into “America the Beautiful” near the end of their first set. Bassist Ryan Stasik moved the song into “Glory,” and the band then segued into “The Fuzz” and the rest of “Glory” to close their first set. Their encore included an appropriate take on “Liberty Echo” sandwiched between “Hangover.”

Umphrey’s McGee are off the road today but will perform at Minneapolis, MN’s Cabooze Outdoor Plaza tomorrow.
