Umphrey’s McGee has announced the exciting return of the Chucktown Ball. Just days after completing their two-night UMBowl run, Umphrey’s McGee has revealed plans for something of a hometown celebration in Charleston, SC, as a number of the band members currently live in the area. Taking place from September 23-24 at Riverfront Park, the two night run will see four full sets from Umphrey’s McGee!
Not only that, but UM has announced a lineup of very special guests. On September 23rd, UM will rock out with Moon Taxi and The Dead 27s. One day later, they’ll get support from The Floozies, Dangermuffin and The Hip Abduction. This has the makings for a very special weekend of music! The band will also donate a portion of proceeds to MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital, supporting a great cause within the community.
Last year’s event was quite the celebration, as UM settled in for three solid nights of rocking music. By bringing in other artists and moving from The Music Farm to the outdoor Riverfront Park, UM is certainly taking this event to the next level. The band will be well rested too, as the Chucktown Ball comes a full month after the band’s final scheduled tour date, at LOCKN’ Festival from 8/25-28. You can see UM’s full summer tour plans here.
