Innovative improv-rock from electronic instrumentalists STS9 and progressive jam band Umphrey’s McGee, who deliver visually stirring live performances and experiment with musical styles including progressive rock, funk, jazz, blues, metal, electronic, bluegrass, and everything in-between.
STS9 is an innovative, instrumental rock band whose repertoire is an original interplay of a bold spectrum of musical styles including electronica, funk, dub, and breakbeats.
“Embraced by hippies and jam fans as much as they are hip-hop heads and the dance crowd, STS9 plays the big stages at festivals ranging from Bonnaroo, Rothbury, and High Sierra to Coachella and Lollapalooza. With music that shows few boundaries and fans that flock from every genre, it appears there's no wall STS9 can't climb.”—Kaceyman of JamBase.com
With influences from Frank Zappa and Pink Floyd to Genesis, Umphrey’s McGee is famous for always-fresh live concerts that mix technically demanding tunes with complex epics and playful covers (ranging from Toto to Metallica).
“Umphrey's McGee stand revealed as consummate musical alchemists, deftly reconfiguring sounds from rock's vast panoply of styles." —Entertainment Weekly
