Umphrey’s McGee Offers Bust Outs & Big Jams In Peoria Smoker [Review/Gallery]

first_imgOn a beautiful summer night in Peoria, IL, Umphrey’s McGee played a fantastic Thursday NIGHT show to a crowd that was very eager to hear the band’s progressive rock sounds. The show had it all- a great opener in The Main Squeeze, huge jams in “Resolution” and “KaBump,” rarer tunes like “Kula” and “Eat,” the latter having an “Orfeo,” sandwiched inside. Without a doubt Umphreaks couldn’t have been be any happier with the show!The Main Squeeze started off the night with their funky and soulful tunes. Although the crowd was not quite as big as it would become when Umphrey’s would take the stage, there were still quite a large number of people that made it in time for the opener. The Main Squeeze played “Where Do We Go?,” and closed out their set with “Two Steps.”Umphrey’s wasted no time in continuing the good music. Instead of opening with a meandering Jazz Odyssey as they are prone to do, they came out firing with a very danceable “The Message” by Grandmaster Flash. To add to the uniqueness, guitarist Jake Cinninger started on keyboards with Joel Cummins. It was a great way to start the show.When they finished and Cinninger donned his guitar, it was time for the rock-n-roll, and they played “All in Time.” The first set also included the rarer instrumental “Eat,” which had a beautiful rendition of “Orfeo” inside. Keyboardist Joel Cummins really shined for the version, and percussionist Kris Myers accompanied him for the second part of the tune. The entire “Eat” segment was a real treat. The improvisational highlight of the show was in “Resolution” which soared to a blistering peak in the way that only Umphrey’s can do. They finished the set with the ending of “All in Time.”The second set began with “Der Bluten Kat” that featured another rare tune, “Kula,” inside. If one wasn’t sure that they were actually playing, “Kula” then one was assured after they went through it the second time. For both choruses, Cinninger counted the band off, “One, two, three, FOUR!” Fan favorites “Ringo” and “Triple Wide” were both excellently played, but the best part of the night came in “KaBump.” A song that is not well known to the casual UM fan, the quirky guitar part is very catchy and usually leads to improvisation. This version certainly did. It actually got quite reggae-esque, and the beat was nice and slow. But they built it up, slowly and powerfully, until the jam was full-blown rock-n-roll. With the music just oozing energy they made a very nice segue into the set closing “Make It Right.”The encore contained “Waiting Room” followed by a “Mulche’s Odyssey” to cap the concert. The only thing that would have made the show better would have been a sit-in from Main Squeeze vocalist Corey Frye. Fortunately, there will be two more chances for that to happen, and, even better, you can stream those two shows here.

The GNA said on Saturday that “entire families” had been killed.The LNA has denied its forces were responsible for any of the bodies found in the mass graves and has called for the United Nations to investigate reports of violations committed by pro-GNA forces in Tarhouna.
