Umphrey's Afterparty: Wyllys and FiKus - 1/17/14 - B.B. King Blues Club

The legendary Beacon Theatre in New York City opens its door this coming weekend offering a double dose of Umphrey’s McGee on Friday and Saturday evening. For those of us who enjoy keeping the evening going on Friday Live For Live Music has put together and after show at B.B King Blues Club featuring a Space Disco reunion, Wyllys with Chris Cartelli, and a not to be missed set by North Jersey powerhouse FiKus. 
Starting immediately after the Umphrey’s show this should be one after show that is not soon forgotten.  Wyllys gets the show started offering up his turntable magic paired with special guest’s keyboardist Joel Cummins (Umphrey’s McGee) and Guitarist Chris Cartelli (Newton Crosby) leaving the door open for almost anything one could imagine taking place on stage and giving the fans a much anticipated “Space Disco” reunion.
FiKus will follow directly after offering up their unique and powerful style of rock infused with everything from electronic to funk guaranteed to keep the evening flowing right along. These guys have been on a roll lately and if their recent Phish after show performance is any indication this should be one hell of a set. The evening will then finish off with Wyllys doing his thing one more time with special guest Chris Cartelli adding his guitar work to the mix thus putting the proverbial icing on the cake that is a Friday night with Umphrey’s McGee and Live for Live Music.
