The Omega Moos Rock Charleston Again
The Omega Moos returned to the Charleston, SC Pour House last night for the second show of their two-night run at the venue. The 70s/80s cover band—which features Umphrey’s McGee’s Brendan Bayliss, Ryan Stasik and Kris Myers, as well as the New Deal’s Jamie Shields—ran through two sets of goofy tribute songs. Last night’s gig also served as a Widespread Panic/Umphrey’s McGee after show following the bands’ performances at the Family Circle Cup.
Last night’s sold out show featured plenty of fun covers of songs like the “Beverley Hills Cop Theme,” Men at Work’s “Land Down Under,” Duran Duran’s “Girls on Film,” Huey Lewis and the News’ “Heart and Soul,” A-ha’s “Take On Me,” Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long” (a tune that Umphrey’s has been known to cover) and more. No word yet on when the Omega Moos will return, but hopefully its sooner rather than later.
