Andy Farag is the percussionist for progressive rock band Umphrey's McGee.[1] He was brought into the band by original drummer Mike Mirro in late 1998, shortly after the release of their debut album Greatest Hits Vol. III. Farag first appeared on disc with Umphrey's McGee on the 1999 live album Songs for Older Women and has remained with the band ever since.

Andy also enjoys creating hip-hop and R&B beats outside of Umphrey's McGee. Some of these tracks have been released as part of the Mantis bonus material.
