    S2E25: "Season 2 Finale" (feat. Quasi Quasar & The Velo Fellow)

    We brought the heat for the Season 2 closer..  An amazing instrumental/rock/blues/jazz/progressive band called Quasi Quasar joins us with a LIVE performance from The Velo Fellow! 

    We had a chance to have our first "roundtable" as well as the UMMPod's first live band recording on an episode ever!  Take a listen as we get to know the guys from Quasi Quasar (and patrons/staff providing your background bar ambience) and provide you a juicy soundclip from said performance in the middle of our roundtable session.

    As always, a fantastic atmosphere and an abundance of beautiful, friendly people at The Velo Fellow... so much love and gratitude to them for hosting us and Quasi Quasar for this special performance! 

    And wrapping up our season finale, our "This Day In Music" segment is followed by our weekly schedule run-down. We also have a pseudo-surprise announcement towards the end of the show! 

    Stay tuned for Season 3 later this summer and don't forget to follow our social media accounts (@upstate music mine) and website (ummpod.com) to hear the latest updates and announcements!
