Umphrey’s McGee has annnounced that Lighting Crew Chief Wade Wilby has left the group. Wilby, who also is known as DJ Wyllys has been picking up some increasingly high-profile gigs as of late and is expected to focus on that career.

In a statement, the band salutes him as follows, “Wade Wilby gave Umphrey’s McGee four years of passion, love, and hard work. Anyone who knows Wade knows he was not meant to be on the sidelines, nor was he born to be behind the scenes. While Wade will no longer be working for the band, he will be pursuing his own career in music. Wyllys is a fantastic DJ, and we wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.”
