Umphrey’s McGee Welcome Marcus King and More in Kalamazoo

Brian Stollery

Umphrey’s McGee played the second of two nights at Kalamazoo, MI’s Wings Event Center on Saturday night, and the evening featured a first-set sit in from guitarist Marcus King keyboardist Deshawn “D’Vibes” Alexander.

The performance fell in the midst of a six-show run of King and his own group opening for Umphrey’s, and he and Alexander emerged near the middle of Saturday’s first set, helping the headliners out with a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys-era funk-rocker “Power of Soul.”

The evening also featured some cuts from UM’s new album it’s not us like “Half Delayed” and “Whistle Kids,” plus a cover of David Bowie’s “Fame” and live staples like “Nothing Too Fancy,” “JaJunk” and “Puppet String.”

See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section. Next up for Umphrey’s McGee is a stop at The Anthem in Washington, DC, on February 15, again with Marcus King Band taking opening duties.
