Wakarusa 2014 | Preview

When the sun peeks over the hillside, and you hear music wafting through the air coupled with the lilt of a family of birds you’ll know you’re in the right place.

You’ll crack open your first beer of the day, sip your breakfast wine or wander along the few paved paths to find some food.

Umphrey's McGee | LC Pavilion | Columbus, OH | 1/31/14 | Review

ON the last day of January 2014 a great group of people gathered in the snow and ice at the LC Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio for a sold out Friday night show.

This was a special stop on the tour as the day before the band got some heart breaking news.
