Review: Umphrey’s at the Calvin Theatre

We’d like to welcome journalist John Coleman to Hidden Track for a report on a very special night for Umphrey’s McGee and two of their fans…

As for the aforementioned fans: The first was Make-A-Wish recipient Derrick Meade. Meade, 18, was diagnosed with level-four lymphoma at age 17 but has been in remission for four months, according to a video interview with Meade posted on the band’s blog The Floor (which was posted here on Hidden Track earlier this week).

Meade said he rushed to get his Make-A-Wish paperwork in before his 18th birthday so the powers that be would allow him a day with his favorite band. His wish was granted.
