Umphrey's McGee To Sing The Stretch At Cubs Game on Wednesday (8/29/12)

According to their website, members of Chicago's foremost improg band will take the mic to sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" at Wednesday night's Cubs game versus the Brewers at Wrigley Field.  It's likely that they use the opportunity to get the word out on this weekend's North Coast aftershow at the Congress.

The performance will be followed by an interview where one of the members will sit in on the broadcast with Bob Brenly and Len Kasper for the bottom of the 7th Inning.

Which band member will it be?  Brenly and Kasper are notorious music lovers -- I wonder if they will take the opportunity to listen to some UM and ask some relevant questions There is no mention of the traditional half inning with Pat and Keith on the radio dial). Will there be any mention of the Chicago anthem?  Cubs fans will find out Wednesday.  Tune in to CSN+ if you're playing along at home.

The band has previously sang the anthem on both sides of town.
