Not a fan myself, but he fills his shows, so I'm surprised by the omission.

I can't believe that I missed this thread.

I see that some are making comments like "jam nbands are wanna-be musicians."

I'm going to bet you that anyone who has ever played, will give credit to jam bands as being pretty amazing musicians in general. Even if that person isn't a fan of the genre.

It's much easier to play the same riff exactly the same 10K times (like a Steve Miller "fly like an eagle" riff). It's a lot more difficult to stand on a stage in front of thousands of people and take a cue from one of your band mates and create something unique and powerful from it.

Sure, I'll agree that sometimes those jams are just rhythms that are "empty calories", but when they click, and they often do, you're experiencing something fantastic.

'nuff said.

If you hate jam bands, listen to the "analyze phish" podcasts. It's an attempt to convince someone to like the band phish, but it ends up being a definitive exposition of why they suck.

I'm not a big fan of jam bands, but there are a handful of songs that I like from a few bands. I was at a county fair in Minnesota about 10 years ago, the Big Wu were playing there - I watched them for a little bit and enjoyed their music.

Looked in the List Of Jam Bands page on wiki that was posted, and not a whole lot interested me. I guess you can say Les Claypool and any of his 50 different projects would be my favorite. But for the most part, the empty calories, long drawn out repetitive 18 minute song, it's not my style.

For jammin'? Saw the Grateful Dead a couple of times before Jerry died and many more Bob and Phil incarnations (e.g., The Dead) since. Three of my favorite single tracks are "Franklin's Tower" and The Music Never Stopped" (Blues for Allah) and "The Eyes of the World" (Wake of the Flood).

I like and have some moe, too. The beginning of "Timmy Tucker" reminds me of the "Seinfeld" theme. :lol:

The other half is a jam band fanatic, so you hear the stuff quite a bit here at home. I like it a good deal, but in a mix with other genres, as I don't usually like to listen to it for hours on end.

In other news, I did run across an article recently on jambands.com: "Phish Start SF Run with Tour Debuts and Crowd 'Woos' " LOLOLOL

Moe.

Don't forget the "."

:)

El-Tee gets it.

btw... Tedeshi-Trucks and the Black Crows were absolutely phenomenal at Jones Beach last night!

I went because Derek Trucks is the absolute master of Slide Guitar and Susan Tedeschi's Bluesy vocals are absolutely fantastic. However I was blown away by Chris Robinsons amazing Blues Harp. Didn't realize that he could wail like that.

Ive seen Moe. twice, and countless other jam/hippie bands. My ex wife is huge into that stuff. I may not care for it, but she definitely gave me a huge amount of respect for the genera.

:D And you change that cap M to lowercase! LOL about the "." after moe. I actually thought of the grammar and punctuation thread in skipping it. It just looks so funny with the "." But, then again, I imagine that's moes.'s (see that? :? ) intent.

I know a bunch of people seeing the Black Crowes tonight. Nice to know they're in for a good show.

Back to the Jam ("self-titled"). Love them to pieces.

Have a good bit of Dinosaur Jr. in my shuffle. I like the mix of grunge (some people dislike the term; I use it for convenience) and jam. Memories of mah yute.

FC44, I think I enjoy not only the music, but I see more smiles, and winks and nods and actual enjoyment from these artists than in almost an other genre. They actually like each other and truly enjoy the opportunity to play with musicians from other bands.

Last night the closing number of the show included the entire bands of both the Black Crows AND Tedeschi-Trucks as well as a couple of other musicians who had originally come to watch the show but were dragged on stage just because they all enjoyed the opportunity to play together.

It really is a labor of love for those folks instead of the rote recitation you see from some more mainstream artists.
