Progressive rock group, Umphrey’s McGee, will make their triumphant return to KettleHouse Amphitheater on Saturday, September 10, 2022.
The jam-heavy sextet is known for their adventurous, unpredictable and highly energetic live concerts. Not many bands can effortlessly flow from hard rock headbangers to spaced out electronica, but that’s exactly the type of genre weaving wizardry you can expect from Umphrey’s McGee. Fans in Montana had the chance to see Umphrey’s at The Wilma in Missoula for an epic two night stand in March 2017 and again at The Wilma in 2018. They played for the first time at KettleHouse Amphitheater in 2019 and we can’t wait to see them back on the Blackfoot!
Over the past two decades, Umphrey’s McGee have played 2,200 gigs and have sold over 5 million tracks. They became the “first group to launch its own single artist streaming service” with UMLive.net, which houses recordings of every gig since 2005. They innovated the fan’s live concert experience with their groundbreaking “Headphones & Snowcones” program, granting fans access to professional headphones and a soundboard-quality mix at shows. In 2021, they released their 15th studio album, You Walked Up Shaking In Your Boots But You Stood Tall And Left A Raging Bull.
They’re gearing up for the released of their next album, Asking For A Friend. which is slated to drop July 1st. They’ve already released a few singles from the album including their latest, Dayville Monarchy.

About Umphrey's Mcgee
Singer-guitarist Brendan Bayliss had just landed in Los Angeles after a flight from Chicago, expecting to start a West Coast tour with Umphrey’s McGee, when he found a text on his phone. It basically said, “You’re going home.”
Keyboard player Joel Cummins, who lives in L.A., was in San Diego, squeezing in some golf before the shows, when his phone lit up. And guitarist Jake Cinninger was at his home studio in Niles, Michigan – across the state line from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, birthplace of Umphrey’s McGee – about to leave for the airport when he got the news.
It was March, 2020 – the first shock and whiplash of pandemic lockdown. After 22 years on the road and a dozen ambitious and eclectic studio albums, including the 2004 breakthrough Anchor Drops, 2009’s prog-rock trip Mantis and 2015’s The London Session, recorded in a single day at Abbey Road, Umphrey’s McGee – Bayliss, Cummins, Cinninger, bassist Ryan Stasik, drummer Kris Myers and percussionist Andy Farag – were grounded until further notice.
