Summer is coming and that can only mean one thing: Lots of activity from Umphrey's McGee. And this year they won't disappoint. Their peeps sent over the following update on what they have planned this year:

Umphrey's McGee kicks-off their 2011 Summer Tour on May 27 with three nights at Summercamp in Chillicothe, IL, where the band will debut - debut Huey Lewis and the Rumors, a new collaboration featuring Umphrey's McGee, a full horn section, and of course, the legendary Huey Lewis.

Additional festival engagements include Wakarusa, Mountain Jam, All Good and others. Also on the schedule, a triumphant return to Colorado's legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre on July 3 for Red Rocks And Blue II featuring support by the New Mastersounds and Easy Star Allstars, and an intimate show the Boulder Theater the following day.

On April 2, 2011, at Park West in Chicago, Umphrey's McGee hosted the second annual UMBowl, a first of its kind interactive concert where fans call the plays over the course of four musical "quarters." The event, which sold out in just minutes, further established the band as leaders in the fields of band/fan interaction and technology. Billboard Magazine confirms the band's vision, saying: "Umphrey's McGee has become an unlikely role model for a music industry still struggling with the conversion to digital distribution amid rampant piracy."
