On 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.

Therefore, 47% of trustees in small schemes have professional qualifications, compared with 16% for large schemes.Additionally, smaller schemes seem to have a greater propensity to delegate externally, and larger schemes internally, consistent with available resources.This, in turn, explains why large schemes spend on average 5.4 basis points on governance, while mid-sized schemes face a cost of 9.7bps and small schemes 13bps.The index found that third-party adviser costs accounted for the largest proportion of governance spending, at 70% for larger schemes and 52% for smaller schemes, and the vast majority of these costs are for actuarial and investment advice.Chris Hogg from the Royal Mail Pension Plan said the survey came from a desire to better understand the governance structures of others, as a context for decision making and formulating ideas.Sorca Kelly-Scholte, managing director of client strategy and research at Russell Investments, added that it was common for governance arrangements to develop and grow over time.“For the governance structure to be sound, it needs regular attention and review, just like any other arrangement a scheme puts in place,” he said.“Good governance doesn’t guarantee better outcomes, but it can materially improve the chance that schemes will reach their objectives.” Pensions funds in the UK are increasingly concerned about their governance structure and most of them have undertaken a process to improve it, a new survey has found.According to the Russell Pensions Governance Index – launched in partnership with the Royal Mail Pension Plan, Telent and Saul pension schemes – 70% of large and 69% of mid-sized schemes said they were in the process of changing their governance structures.In comparison, only 27% of small schemes said they were engaged in such a process.However, the report stressed that smaller schemes had a higher proportion of trustees with professional qualifications on their committees than larger schemes.
