Happy Friday… first one of the year!

I have compiled my favorite images from the Umphrey’s New Years Run in St. Louis.

Once again, my expectations were exceeded with these 3 shows. There was a great connection with the band and the fans because of the intimate venue. Song selection and execution were phenomenal.

Thank you Umphrey’s for constantly reminding me why you are the best band on the planet. \mm/
