Umphrey’s McGee stopped by Charlotte, NC, on Friday night for a show in Romare Bearden Park as part of the city’s SHOUT! festival series of concerts. The one-off headlining performance featured a couple of special guests, including G. Love, who opened the evening with his band Special Sauce.
The collaboration took place at the tail-end of the first set, when Umphrey’s welcomed out both G. Love and saxophonist Mike Quinn for a cover of The Rolling Stones classic “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.” G. Love added harmonica to the tune while Quinn, who plays with UM bassist Ryan Stasik in Doom Flamingo, provided some tenor saxophone support. UM later returned for a second set featuring live staples like “Nothing Too Fancy,” which bookended the set, “Bridgeless” and “Wappy Sprayberry,” followed by an encore cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.”
Check out the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section. Next up for Umphrey’s McGee is their annual Summer Camp celebration in Illinois, starting May 24. See the band’s full schedule here.
