Progressive jam band Umphrey’s McGee and special guest Big Something will be live in concert at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. Umphrey’s McGee are more than just a rock band – through nearly two decades, they have proven to be on the cutting-edge of both music and technology, super-serving fans through a community that stretches from the campus of Notre Dame to the hallowed halls of Abbey Road.
Since forming on the Notre Dame campus, they’ve performed together over 18+ years, consistently raising the bar, setting and achieving new goals. The recording of “The London Session” was a dream come true, having been recorded at legendary Studio Two at historic Abbey Road. The stealth recording session yielded 10 tracks in a single day, proving once again, the prolific UM waits for no one. The envelope pushing continued with the release of “ZONKEY”, an album of 12 unique mashups conceived and arranged by the band. Bits and pieces of classic songs are culled from 40 plus years of popular music from 70s Reggae to 80s Pop to 90s Metal and everywhere in between.
Big Something, a 6-piece powerhouse with a sound both unique and timeless, fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. Soaring guitars, synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered Summer circuit stalwarts as Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B-52s who have all tapped Big Something as direct support.
Doors 5:30pm / Show 6:00pm
