Of the people, by the people, for the people…
When you play 100+ shows a year, there are nights we never forget, nights some of us never remember and nights when something truly extraordinary happens between YOU and US. Something that makes a particular performance stand out. A performance worthy of hearing again. And hopefully again. But how to choose?
As artists, our subjective bias often leads to nitpicking which is why YOU--our valued partners in sonic exploration--are the heart and soul of the Hall of Fame. You voted on the most noteworthy Umphrey’s song performances of 2012. Your votes have been tallied, and the master tapes are being compiled into a continuous idealized 3+ hour “show” based on your favorites. The ultimate Umphrey’s show of 2012 as chosen by YOU.
We love seeing the results of the voting….your participation in this process gives us an opportunity to understand what we do that works for you, and we’re proud as hell of how you’ve curated the last 3 Hall of Fames. So we figured, why not take this interactive experience a step further?
We decided to partner with PledgeMusic for the 2012 Hall of Fame to not only offer a wider variety of HOF offerings than ever before but also to give all pledgers at any level access to a special ‘pledger-only’ part of the site. There you’ll find exclusive updates throughout the process…you’ll get to see videos, photos and audio of the entire process of putting the Hall of Fame together. Want a peek behind the curtain of the voodoo editing process? Ever seen vinyl being pressed at the plant? How about band members customizing the LP sleeves? Who knows…you might even get a few bonus tracks that didn’t make the final release or other goodies that are kicking around UM HQ!
Why go through all of this? Well, first of all we thought it would be more fun and interesting for you to get a look at the process all the way through…you voted on it, now you get to see how it all comes together. But we also want to put our collective efforts to good work, so a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Neonatal Intensive Care Units at MUSC Children’s Hospital, largest & most comprehensive pediatric health care center in the state of South Carolina. MUSC provided angelic care for several Umphrey’s babies and with our support, they can continue to provide that incredible care to those most in need.
So what are you waiting for? Pledge! Tell your friends. Tell them to tell their friends. The more participation we get, the easier it is to throw more content to all you pledgers. And let’s show this dinosaur industry how it’s DONE.
As always, thanks for lettin’ us do what we do.
