Position: Improg Expert, Obligatory (and hated) Cubs Fan
Favorite Song: Hurt Bird Bath
Three of Andy’s favorite things came together in the summer of 98 when he first saw Umphrey’s McGee. He finally found a place where his love of prog rock, free form improv, and the Chicago Cubs could co-exist. Andy has been a dedicated Umphreak, listing the 2002 Bonnaroo set as what he calls “the Pinnacle of all Sound”. He readily admits that the 10 hits of acid he took before the show helped him hear the colors and taste the sound, but like a true Cubs fan who says “Wait until next year”, he won’t give up this claim. Thefirstset.net welcomes Andy with open arms, but will kick his ass if he tries to convince us that this is finally their year.
