  • One of many photo's I've taken at the July 2 Umphrey's McGee concert. It was my first time seeing them live in concert. My son insisted that I come to see one of their shows, as he has traveled to Colorado, Minnesota and Illinois to see them live in concert. I was impressed with their music and their light-show was fantastic. Although the weather was chilly and rainy - and I was concerned for the band playing in the rain on an open stage, it was great concert. June P. - Sheboygan WI
