Umphrey’s McGee Welcome Guests During All Night Wrong Set
Umphrey’s McGee closed down Wanee Music Festival with their first All Night Wrong of the year. The band kicked off the cover-filled set with their Talking Heads/Bob Marley original mashup “Life During Exodus” before delivering UM cover staples in “The Song Remains the Same” and “Rock the Casbah,” a more recent debut.
The first guest of the night came in the form of Blues Traveler’s John Popper, who added harmonica to The Rolling Stones’ “Miss You.” Previously, UM performed the cover with G. Love, who also added harmonica and vocals to the song. After Steely Dan’s “Hey 19,” Oteil Burbridge sat in for “When the World is Running Down,” a longtime cover in the Umphrey’s repertoire.
UM’s unique “dub” take on Pink Floyd’s “Breathe” followed before Eric Krasno and Adam Deitch sat in on Scofield’s “A Go Go,” a cover not performed in over a year. Krasno would return for the encore but the final unique guest of the evening was Warren Haynes on “Immigrant Song” and the harmony-laden “Black Water.” Haynes and Umphrey’s normally collaborate when the band appears at Mountain Jam in New York.
The two song encore included a high energy take on “Runnin’ With the Devil” and the aforementioned Krasno returned for a UM and Soulive staple, “I Want You (She’s So Heavy).” Next up for Umphrey’s is a show at the Saenger Theatre in Mobile, AL on April 16.
