About Umphrey's McGee

Umphrey's McGee started in South Bend, Indiana, as a unique progressive rock band that utilizes improvisation on stage and in jam sessions. It has even been given the brand "improg." It falls under the genre and in the footsteps of other jam-like bands such as the contemporary Phish and the Grateful Dead in terms of its process. Although, the musical inspiration comes from rock bands like Pink Floyd, Yes, King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Iron Maiden, The Police, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. Umphrey's McGee is into drawing inspiration from a diverse set of genres: rock, funk, metal, jazz, blues, electronic, bluegrass and folk.

While attending the University of Notre Dame, Brendan Bayliss (guitarist and vocalist), Ryan Stasik (bassist), Joe Cummins (keyboardist) and Mike Mirro (drummer). The band was a combination of members from two bands: Tashi Station and Stomper Bob. In the early days, Umphrey's McGee covered music like "Patience" by Guns 'N" Roses, "Linus and Lucy" by Vince Guaraldi's Peanuts, in addition to songs by bands like Phish and The Grateful Dead. The first album released was entitled, Greatest Hits Vol. III. It contained songs like "Divisions," "Phil's Farm," "FF" and "All in Time." Following the release of Greatest Hits Vol. III, the band additional an additional member by the name of Andy Farag (percussionist).

It was not long before Umphrey's McGee become one of the most sought after bands in South Bend by playing college parties. The band released a live album called Songs for Older Women. Following the live release, the band added a new guitarist, Jake Cinniger. The addition helped to bring fresh ideas to the band, which started focusing on the improvisational style. The band released an additional live album called One Fat Sucka. The emphasis on live music made it important to focus on learning the art of jamming and improvising in playing their music.

It was not until June of 2002 that Umphrey's McGee released the album Local Band Does Ok. Following the release of the album, the band played Bonnaroo Music Festival. It was a huge show for Umphrey's McGee with thirty bands playing an audience of 100,000 attendees. During the Bonnaroo Music Festival, Umphrey's McGee sold a significant number of albums.

The band's lineup changed in 2003, after having a close call with breaking up. Alas, Umphrey's McGee continues to keep rocking stages across the United States. The present lineup includes: Brendan Bayliss, Joel Cummins, Ryan Stasik, Andy Farag, Jake Cinninger and Kris Myers. In 2004, the band released the album, Anchor Drops. Utilizing aspects of improvisation, the album was recorded in multiple studios throughout the Chicago area. The band has continued to produce albums and entertain audiences with its progressive rock.


Umphrey's McGee Trivia

According to Jake Cinninger in an interview with Guitar World, he gave more insight into the process of making an "improg" band. He said, "we're all jazz- and classical-based, and then we just carry it over into the rock format. The idea of jazz being the improv and classical being sort of the progressive idea of what rock is, and trying to fuse both of those ideas together. With the six piece, we can get away with quite a bit of bells and whistles and ear candy so everyone has a role to fill. We'll be back stage and come up with a chord progression that we'll call an A section and then a B section and a C section, and write everything down. Then within a jam or an improv, we'll go into this random chord progression, and sometimes lyrics will come about out of nowhere, and then we try to get back to where we once were on the set list.


Umphrey's McGee Live Show Experience
