On Oct. 16, Umphrey’s McGee guitarists Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss – a duo henceforth known as Shitty Limo – got cozy on a couch-adorned stage at Boomers Stadium in the Chicago suburbs for an informal, socially distanced set of UM originals and covers, alongside guests like Steve “Britches” Britz, Sam Sutton and Bayliss’ neighbor T-Bird.
After an opening version Bob Seger’s “Night Moves,” the guitarists – who were layered in coats and beanies to fight the crisp autumn air – sunk into their first UM tune with the fairly-new “Suxity” which bled into “Hajimemashite.”
Covers abounded through the set, with crowd-pleasers like Toto’s “Africa,” Pink Floyd’s “Time” and Waylon Jennings’ “Luckenbach, Texas.”
Cinninger even flexed his bass skills on “August” and “No Comment,” before members of the aforementioned guest list amended the tail-end of the set as well as a good portion of the encore.
Cinninger and Bayliss took their final bow after a three-part victory lap of “You Gotta Move” (with T-Bird on broom), “Wish You Were Here” (with T-Bird on harmonica) and “Kielbasa Sausage.”
“We love you guys. Please be safe,” the duo declared before departing the stage.
