Last week, we dedicated our #UMC20 Spotify playlist to some of 2018’s most memorable moments.

We searched far and wide this week, trying to find new and diverse selections for this week’s edition of the #UMC20 Spotify playlist.
When a band or ensemble endures and stays commercially viable for 50 years, that demands attention. Yes is one of those bands. Of course, since their formation in 1968, many musicians have passed through their ranks. Detractors point to that as a satirical characteristic of the band.

I didn’t know much about Uriah Heep heading into Tuesday night. All I knew is that I signed up for a concert photography class through ArtsQuest, and that the “final exam” was the chance to photograph the band during their Musikfest Café performance that night.
