Umphrey’s McGee Debuts Audioslave, “Piña Colada” Song Covers In Peoria [Photos]

first_imgOn Sunday night, following a memorable performance in Indianapolis the previous evening, Chicago jam staples Umphrey’s McGee made their way to CEFCU Center Stage at The Landing in Peoria, IL for a Sunday evening show on the banks of the Illinois River.The night’s first set began with “Eat,” which got a nice dose of improv before a “Push The Pig” > “Cut Off” saw the band truly start to settle in. Next up was “Onward & Upward,” making its second appearance in nearly three years, before the band moved into instrumental “The Pequod” and “Conduit” to close the first frame.Set two began with “All Things Ninja,” featuring fantastic solo slots from Kris Myers (drums) and Jake Cinninger (guitar). “Attachments” came next, before Brendan Bayliss stepped back into the spotlight for “2×2.” The fan-favorite tune was succeeded by a solidly played “Utopian Fir,” which eventually made its way to a jam on Rupert Holmes “Escape,” known to most as the “Pina Colada” song. “Kula” > “Wappy Sprayberry” followed, before a debut cover of Audioslave‘s “Cochise” brought the set to an end. Finally, the band returned for an encore of “End of the Road > “Out Of Order.”Below, you can view a stunning gallery of photos from Umphrey McGee’s Peoria performance courtesy of the ever-impressive Keith Griner of Phierce Photo.
