On Saturday night, following two webcast shows in New Orleans, LA and Austin, TX earlier this weekend, Umphrey’s McGee closed out their summer touring schedule with a performance at the House of Blues in Dallas, TX.
The tour-closing performance saw Umphrey’s welcome some special guests to close out their first set of the night. First, the band welcomed the multi-talented Jennifer Hartswick to sing lead on Whitesnake‘s “Still of the Night”, marking Umphrey’s McGee’s first-ever rendition of the 80’s hair metal classic. From there, Hartswick grabbed her trumpet and remained onstage as the band welcomed her Trey Anastasio Band horn section cohort, saxophonist James Casey, as well to add a two-piece brass section to a cover of Peter Gabriel‘s “Sledgehammer”. Watch a fan-shot clip of Hartswick singing “Still of the Night” below:
