Fans who were in attendance for Umphrey's McGee New Years Eve concert at The Fillmore in Denver were perhaps a bit shocked when the band broke out a smooth cover of R. Kelly's 2003 Chocolate Factory tune "Ignition (Remix)." Watch fans sing and dance along to the band's performance above.

Umphrey's maintained the same smooth and sexy delivery as R. Kelly's version, and the crowd loved it! The inclusion of horns lends a jazzy feel as Umphrey's was making sure everybody was feeling alright. Other covers the band performed that night was "Tempted" by Squeeze and "Christmas in Hollis" by Run D.M.C.

Umphrey's will be hitting the road with TAUK later this month for a North American tour that will extend into April.
