Upon the release of a live performance album, the group moved to Chicago, where they shared the stage with Béla Fleck and Topaz. A studio album called Local Band Does O.K. came out in 2002, as well as a live performance DVD. Their third studio album Safety in Numbers reached the Billboard's albums chart in 2006. The London Session was recorded in London’s famous studio Abbey Road Studios. Umphrey’s has covered songs by a number of contemporary artists, including the Beatles “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”.
