Umphrey’s celebrated Brendan Bayliss’s birthday throughout last night’s show in Bridgeport. A cake was brought out for the guitarist at the end of the first set which was accompanied by the signing of the traditional Happy Birthday song. For the encore, UM debuted Bennie and the Jets by Elton John to fulfill the request of the birthday boy before concluding the Nothing Too Fancy they started in the second set. Next up for the Chicago based sextet is a return to moe.down, where they will be joined by guitarist Stanley Jordan during this afternoon’s set in Turin, New York.
