WILMINGTON — When Indiana’s jam-band rockers Umphrey’s McGee rolled through Wilmington on April 28, they played through roughly 15 tracks, blending their funk-pop grooves, metal-rock riffs, blues-bending sounds and reggae-bouncing percussion.

The band — consisting of Brendan Bayliss, Joel Cummins, Ryan Stasik, Andy Farag, Jake Cinninger, and Kris Myers — have spent 22 years on the road, recording over a dozen live albums and more than a dozen studio albums to date, including 2022’s “Asking For A Friend.”

The recent album eschews long jams and improvisation, instead relying on tight, concise musicality. It was recorded during the height of Covid-19.

“It’s just about revealing yourself and being the best songwriter possible,” Cinninger told David Fricke about the release. “We were writing this music out of need, out of grief and getting great results.”

Live, the band brings more than an amalgamation of spirited rock to the forefront; an illuminating light show is part of the concert.

“They make it feel like you’re at a huge rock show but with the intimacy of GLA,” photographer Tom Dorgan said, who captured photos of the show for Port City Daily.
