Opening the show with a rare five-minute jazz odyssey known by fans as “Tango Mike,” the Chicago-based progressive rockers got the crowd jamming. They kicked off the first grooving set with a 15-minute instrumental rendition of “Wife Soup.” The two-and-a-half hour show consisted of 15 songs that ranged from their early jazzier style to the newer Dave Matthews-esque vibe. In true jam-band style, most of their songs were quite lengthy, and they often played several tunes back to back. Umphrey’s McGee ended the concert with a tribute to one of their inspirations, the great Paul McCartney, with an interpretation of “Live and Let Die.” ★★★☆☆
