Friday is a day meant for excitement, celebration, and anticipation for the two days ahead of you. We are here to do everything in our power to help you finish the week on a strong note and head full speed into the weekend. On that note, we have decided to take a look back one of our favorite moments in Umphrey's McGee history.
While supporting the release of the band's fourth studio album, Safety in Numbers, Umphrey's made it's late night television debut on the ABC network's Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a performance of "Women, Wine, and Song" and "Nemo", both of which were featured on the new album. Umphrey's called on their friend Huey Lewis for the special occasion, who had recently joined them in the recording studio. Video footage from the live performance from ABC studios can be found below. Umphrey's manager Vince Iwinski can be seen jamming on the front row at the 1:50 mark.
Safety In Numbers is Umphrey's McGee's fourth studio album, released on April 4, 2006. Huey Lewis and Joshua Redman both make appearances. Lewis makes appearances on both "Women, Wine, and Song" and "End of the Road", while Redman appears on "Intentions Clear". The album contains many slower, acoustic songs and a simpler, stripped down approach with little jamming or progressive rock elements. The artwork for the album was done by Storm Thorgerson.
