Umphrey’s McGee/ Spafford in Concert at The Fillmore

Fri Aug 17, 2018

Umphrey’s McGee’s constantly evolving sound channels a wide spectrum of influences while still preserving their distinct voice through crafty songwriting. With a massive repertoire of originals and note-perfect covers, their live shows are like flipping through the presets on your radio dial. Their A.D.D. approach to “progressive improvisation” utilizes a set of Zappa inspired hand signals allowing them to orchestrate their melodic creations on the fly.

Composed of Brian Moss (guitar), Jordan Fairless (bass), Andrew “Red” Johnson (keys), and Cameron Laforest (drums), Spafford’s patented “electrofunk therapy” has a little bit of something for everyone, offering tastes of rock, funk, electronic, bluegrass, gospel, and more. The Arizona-based four-piece is characterized by strong vocals, tight harmonies, catchy tunes, and captivating live shows. Most recently, Spafford has been selected to play high-profile events like Bonnaroo, The Peach Music Festival, Summer Camp, Firefly Music Festival, and Suwannee Hulaween.
