Umphrey’s McGee returned to the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston last night, and they brought The Shady Horns with them for a jam-packed show filled with lots of fun improvisation.The band kicked things off with a huge four-song movement, starting off with 2013 UMBowl instrumental “Gents”, before moving into old favorite “White Mans Moccasins”, followed up by a raging “Ringo”, before they landed on a high-energy “Miss Tinkles Overture”. Next up, Umphrey’s performed their multi-part fan-favorite “2×2”, featuring an incredible guitar solo from recent birthday boy Brendan Bayliss. The band then invited out featured guests Eric “Benny” Bloom and Ryan Zoidis, who brought the thunder with huge versions of “Speak Up”, “Headphones & Snowcones”, and “Example 1” to end set one with a serious bang.After a short break, Umphrey’s returned to the stage for a wild version of “Dump City”. The song is always well-received by fans, and delivered it’s usual healthy dose of improv – truly an excellent way to open up set two. “Cemetary Walk 1” followed, with Umphrey’s crushing the piano-driven, prog-rock song. The dancey “Day Nurse” followed, which eventually winded its way into a perfect version of their classic “Divisions”. After the huge “Divisions”, Umphrey’s picked the energy up even more with their metal rager “Wizard Burial Ground”. After the head-banging of “WBG”, the band invited The Shady Horns back out for a funky version of “I Got Love” before closing things out with the relative rarity of “Woman Wine & Song”.The band took their customary encore break, then returned to the stage for a pulsating version of “Bad Friday”, bringing the horns back out for one more high energy moment before bringing the evening to a close.Thanks to these Umphreaks, we can enjoy some fan-shot footage from the Boston takeover:Speak Up w/ The Shady Horns [via Kyle Miller] You can also stream the full audio from the show, courtesy of taper opsopcopolis, below:Umphrey’s McGee is at The Peach Music Festival next, playing an “After Midnight” set this evening.
