The jams just kept coming as the band brought out favorites “The Floor,” “40’s Theme,” and “In The Kitchen” one after another.Two special guests made their way into the band’s NCMF set, as dobroist Anders Beck from Greensky Bluegrass showed up mid-set to accompany UM on a great version of “Glory.” It was Jennifer Hartswick who got the call later on, joining Umphrey’s for a mash-up of “Electric Avenue” and “Highway to Hell” titled, humorously, “Electric Avenue to Hell” in the encore.
