Blending rock styles from across the decades, the band fuses inimitable technical prowess with chemistry developed over the course of a friendship that dates back to their days at Notre Dame, ensuring no two concerts are alike. The band’s beloved live performances mesmerize fans with radiant light shows and at times encourages them to text suggestions for songs or hairstyles. Lincoln Hall’s advanced acoustic engineering ensures every riff and surprise alpenhorn solo soars clearly through the air. A copy of Umphrey’s latest album, Death By Stereo, gives attendees a danceable introduction to the group’s more compact, hook-centric studio sound.

In addition to scores of unique takes on the band’s massive catalog ($0.99/track, $9.99/show for most recordings), the archive also unveils treats such as demos for Death By Stereo and takes from a scrapped novelty album of President’s Day songs.
