Wanee Music Festival hosted some of the best jam bands in the game, with plenty of cross collaborations to keep the already unique lineup even more interesting. Kung Fu played a killer set on Saturday afternoon, welcoming Umphrey’s McGee’s Joel Cummins on keys for a “Joyride” > “Cars” jam, hours before UM would take the same stage for a late-night festival closing mash-up set.
The performance was a musical highlight of the weekend, featuring fan-favorites “The Get Down, “S’all Good” and “Samurai.” You can listen to the full audio below, courtesy of taper Butch Almberg:
Tomorrow, Kung Fu is hosting a “Get Out and Vote For Bernie” benefit concert at The Hall at MP, in Brooklyn, NY with special guest support from an all-star cast, including Phish’s Jon Fishman, Dead & Company’s Oteil Burbridge, and Trey Anastasio Band’s Natalie Cressman, along with Kat Wright, Jason Hann of SCI/EOTO, DJ Logic, LoveDeep, and more.
