Press Release via Umphrey's McGee

Umphrey’s McGee cordially invites you to join them for the debut of Reel To Real on the inaugural evening of 2016. This one-of-a-kind benefit kicks off with a hair of the dog happy hour with Team UM. After libations & sustenance, you’ll take your seats for the premiere of a Nothing Too Fancy Music retrospective. Comprised of unseen footage from the camcorder archives, join UM as they take you on a visual journey into the early touring years of the band.

Upon conclusion of the ‘Reel', they'll pivot to the ‘Real’ and journey into the songs that have accompanied them through the years. The format will be a set of original music, with commentary on the history and circumstances surrounding the writing, recording and evolution of a slew of UM tunes.

In addition to the film and performance, the night will feature an open bar, theatre treats, raffle, and more. Partnering with good people of Conscious Alliance, Umphrey's will be raising money to feed those most in need, all while sending you home with a limited edition UM+CA event poster.

Reel to Real tickets go on sale Thursday, October 1st at Noon MT.
