Umphrey’s McGee continued their tour at 20 Monroe Live in Grand Rapids, MI, last night, welcoming back Jake Cinninger after the guitarist took some time off due to a “wicked flu.” The night would also see the band bring on pianist Holly Bowling for a sit in.
The evening kicked off with a run of “Flamethrower” into “The Floor,” which can be seen below as streamed by UM’s Facebook. The first set also included a cover of The Tempations’ “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” the first rendition of the tune by Umphrey’s since early December 2005.
After set number two began with “Soul Food I,” Bowling came onstage to help out for the middle segment of the three-song run, “Soul Food II.” The set also included a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” and the live staple “JaJunk.”
See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section. Umphrey’s McGee return to the stage tonight at The Fillmore in Detroit, MI.
