American rock band Umphrey’s McGee will return to Harrah’s Cherokee Center — Asheville for the two-night Blue Ridge Rockaway featuring special guest Billy Strings on Feb. 14 and 15 at 6:30 p.m. both nights.
The music of Umphrey’s McGee unfolds like an unpredictable conversation between longtime friends. Its six participants—Brendan Bayliss [guitar, vocals], Jake Cinninger [guitar, vocals], Joel Cummins [keyboards, piano, vocals], Andy Farag [percussion], Kris Myers [drums, vocals], and Ryan Stasik [bass]—know just how to communicate with each other on stage and in the studio. A call of progressive guitar wizardry might elicit a response of soft acoustic balladry, or a funk groove could be answered by explosive percussion.
nd focuses on making their fans feel like they are apart of something greater than themselves. UM is more of a community rather than just a rock band.
