Umphrey’s McGee - 8/23/2015: Jannus Live; St. Petersburg, FL
Concert Review by Tom Sutherland on 8/25/2015   

Umphreys McGee arrived early in St. Petersburg fresh off their Miami performance and were spotted at The Mandarin Hide bar in downtown St. Pete sampling some of their “Nothing Too Fancy Everyday Ale” and giving out free koozies to their fans. The Umphrey’s McGee beer is a session American Wheat with generous amounts of fruity hops. Rock Brothers partnered with Cigar City Brewing in Tampa on recipe development, but will also involve Boulder Beer Company in Colorado for the newly released brew.

Jannus Live has been around since 1984 and hosted such notable acts as The Red Hot Chili Peppers (back in 1987), Bob Weir, Warren Haynes, Radiohead, Bad Religion, Janes Addiction, Pearl Jam, The Wailers, G-Love, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Flaming Lips, and Insane Clown Posse just to name a few. Jannus has a midnight noise curfew so things got rolling promptly for the UM crew around 7:45PM. I recalled that the 2014 Umphreys McGee performance at Jannus Live included some solid originals as well covers of Rock the Casbah, Willie the Pimp, Tom Sawyer, and Running with the Devil. This 2015 performance focused on original material and UM certainly delivered the goods. The jams were as hot and blistering as the Florida sunshine and the body heat which was steaming and swaying to the intense light show.
