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.” For more on this ground-breaking event check out the Mashable feature here:
