A few years ago, Brendan Bayliss of Umphrey’s McGee and Jeff Austin–at the time a member of Yonder Mountain String Band–formed a new musical project called 30db. The project was a great outlet for the two songwriters, even if it only lasted for a short period of time. After unofficially parting ways in 2012, the pair has made it a point to come together each December in Chicago over the last few winters (in 2015, 2016, and 2017) treating fans to originals from their 2010 album.
This spring, Brendan Bayliss and Jeff Austin had special plans for fans, adding additional 30db shows in the midwest, including a show at Milwaukee’s Miramar Theatre on May 9th and Chicago’s Martyrs’ on May 11th. Happily, a videographer from Milwaukee, Kevin Schwartz (also known as Instrumental Motion Media), was on hand during the highly anticipated May 9th performance. You can check out a full video of the duo’s performance below, courtesy of Schwartz.
