Submitted by on Thu, 06/21/2012 - 9:21 pm

In the interest of continuing to deliver our fans the most unique, entertaining and engaging experiences around, the preparation for sUMmer school rolls on. sUMmer school is an intimate five day music camp nestled in the Catskill Mountains that will dive head first into all things Umphrey’s McGee. And we want you to join us!

Experience five days of interactive musical workshops designed for musicians of all skill levels, from aspiring beginner to zen master. We’ll explore how UM writes songs, improvises as a group, and rehearses both individually and collectively. There will be a variety of individual breakout sessions from the entire band & UM organization featuring insight into our business, touring, lighting, recording and more. And Thursday night we’ll rock an awards ceremony, complete with loads of gear giveaways from many UM endorsers. Did we mention there will be an Umphrey's McGee show show every night, followed by an open jam with camp attendees?

In addition, we’ll be offering a slew of non-musical activities ranging from hiking to bags, kickball to BBQing, films to fire pits. It’s the best chance you’re going to have to ask Stasik about his moustache waxing techniques while tipping back a cold one around a bonfire.  

Our tentative sUMmer school schedule is now available for your perusal. Give it a once over and hit us with any thoughts, suggestions, or questions at The camp is filling but we have various lodging and camping accommodations still available. Take a chance and come join us for a week in the woods, we promise you won’t regret it.
