Have you ever wonder what Phish would sound like if they decided to become a progressive rock band? Or what Pink Floyd would have sounded like if they had decided to become a jam band? We really don’t have to wonder thanks to Umphrey’s McGee. Had either of the above scenarios happened the result probably would have sounded a lot like Umphrey’s McGee.
Umphrey’s McGee is a progressive jam band. They are often described as “progressive improvisation” or “improg.” They improvise like a jam band but sound more like a progressive rock outfit. On top of all that, they throw in a dash of heavy metal music and aren’t afraid of a good melody. Of course, like most jam bands and progressive rockers, Umphrey’s McGee experiments with a variety of music genres.

Umphrey’s McGee was founded on the campus of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. The original lineup consisted of guitarist and vocalist Brendan Bayliss, keyboardist Joel Cummins, drummer Mike Mirro, and bassist Ryan Stasik. Percussionist Andy Faraq joined the group in 1998 and guitarist Jake Cinninger in 2002. Mirro left the band in 2002 to go to medical school. He passed away in 2014. Mirro was replaced by Kris Myers.
The band released their first album, the cheekily named Greatest Hits Vol. III, in 1998. This was more of a demo tape than anything else. Their first proper studio recording is Local Band Does OK. That dropped in 2002. In 2014, Umphrey’s McGee released their eighth studio album, Similar Skin. As you might expect from a band that plays more than 100 concerts a year, Umphrey’s McGee has released 10 official live albums.
