Jam band Umphrey’s McGee is offering a new way to enjoy a concert experience.
By leveraging wireless technology to broadcast music from the sound engineer’s mixing board to band members, fans can rent a wireless receiver and headphones and hear what the musicians hear.
Although this experiment is still developing in its early stages, the small percentage of fans who have tested it out have been very positive about the quality and volume of the sound. The group is now aiming to lower the costs of operation.
