Cover It!
A few years back, a couple of Umphrey's fans from Tennessee named Chris & Susan started showing up at many of our shows, always making their way front and center and rocking out on the rail. It was only a matter of time until we became friends with this amazing pair of loving people. Over the years, Chris & Susan have come up with the most thoughtful, heartfelt gifts for the band and crew to show their appreciation for the enjoyment they found at our concerts. At Caribbean Holidaze 2008, Chris presented us with a CD that he had created called "Cover It!", a double disc set of Umphrey's McGee covers from the last few years, complete with cover art that Chris had spray-painted on a Tennessee wall, and artwork to support this factious release.
Chris passed away on August 20, 2009, leaving a void in the Umphrey's community that will never be replaced. In his memory, we'll be releasing his creation "Cover It!' this Monday, November 2nd at Noon CT exclusively on UMLive.net. Proceeds from sales will go to USTORM.org, a charity that Chris supported.

Awesome!!!
 
I actually purchased a bunch of their covers and have a playlist of them with quite different covers!
 
I'll be downloading a few of those above.
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

Hmmm, I didn't realize you were a member of the band, Scott?  Of course, correct me if I'm wrong. LOL
Interesting set of covers though, I'll probably bite. Big smile
