Headphones & Snowcones



Ever find yourself at a show scouting out the soundboard wondering what the engineer is hearing, wondering what those headphones sound like? Want to find out?

An idea long stewing in the UM incubator is finally coming to fruition. We are pleased to unveil an unparalleled live show experience – a pristine soundboard mix piped wirelessly to your ears through audiophile quality headphones. Forget the silent disco and throw your expectations out the window, this is the real deal. The nuance of every note, the clarity of every lyric, the breath of every space is now yours for the taking.

Utilizing technology identical to what the band uses, you will be armed with a Sennheisser in-ear monitor wireless pack and high fidelity Audio-Technica headphones, allowing you to experience the sonics of Umphrey’s McGee in absolutely unparalleled quality. Prepare to change the way you experience live music.
