“Umphrey’s McGee is launching the Red Rocks & Blue Bundle, a one of a kind Pay What You Want charity campaign featuring their 2 part documentary Red Rocks and Blue, available for the first time. Every dollar donated to the campaign feeds one meal to the hungry in association with the Feed Them With Music charity, and if our goals of 2,500 and 5,000 meals delivered are reached, all participants will receive unreleased rare tracks from UM. The highest donors will be rewarded with exciting prizes, like the chance to name a UM song and a rare autographed copy of the band’s long out of print debut. This 1-week only event is happening at Groupees, a new platform designed to transform the digital media download into a social event by way of unique exclusive deals on music, games, and video.”

About The Documentary
“This 26 minute two-part documentary is a visually stunning journey through the ins and outs of Umphrey’s McGee and the fabled Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Packed full of live performances, backstage antics, insightful interviews & gorgeous cinematography, this is a must have for the collection.”
