Of the people, by the people, for the people . . .

Hall of Fame: Class of 2015 is here. Now.

You’ve cast your ballots, we’ve counted the votes, and the Class of 2015 is in. The annual Hall of Fame series features the best of best of the year as determined by the UM faithful. We’ve taken your top picks and turned them into a two-set show that encapsulates the essence of live UM: raw, energetic, and inspired. Heavy on improvisation and stylistically diverse ‒ it’s what you’ve come to expect from Umphrey’s McGee.

Nearly four hours of music have been meticulously stitched together and remastered to deliver you a brand new listening experience. This year’s offering was sourced from 13 different shows across the Contiguous 48, from Georgia to New York, Illinois to Colorado. It features UM staples and HOF debuts alike, alongside a handful of special guests including tracks with Mad Dog’s Filthy Little Secret Horns and the Chicago Mass Choir.

Hall of Fame: Class of 2015 is available in a smattering of digital formats, on CD, and, as has become tradition, limited edition colored 180-gram, double LPs. (Your mom called, she wants you to buy the vinyl.) The vinyl features the “best of the best” and includes a download card of the nearly four-hour “show.” Even better, snag one of the limited edition autographed versions while you can. This year’s HOF Swag Pack will feature a 3D metal pin, “kiss cut” sticker sheet, and cover art koozie.
