Thanks to DJ and Frownland, I've found a Jam Band thread to bump!

This one has a good OP, but not many bands are mentioned beyond the trinity of Allmans, Dead and Phish, so I'd like to add a recommendation for Tea Leaf Green, whose music I'm currently exploring :



New Monsoon are another band that has impressed me in the past, though I've only dipped into a little of their catalogue. That is likely to change, thanks to Psy-Fi's post in another old jam band thread :

If you aren't already aware of the site, they have a huge live music database of bands, including Umphrey's McGee, available for free listening/downloading. Some of the shows are soundboard recordings and some are audience member recordings.
Many bands listed there would probably fit into the jam band category.
There is a forum there devoted to the Grateful Dead, and many of the participants are quite knowledgeable about the jam band scene.
I visit the site often for music and info about bands/artists.
Click on his innocuous-looking link, and you'll find a monster collection of live jams. I side-stepped The Grateful Dead forum (10,000 items), but can recommend this page for a taste of what New Monsoon can do:

( Click on track five to stream a great version of the old War favourite, Cisco Kid and more.)

Finally, I'd like to make a comment about the Jam Bander's dillema. There you are, up on stage, playing away for hours, aware that your concert is being recorded; you presumably want to explore your musical limits, but you don't want the audience to accuse you of noodling, so you have to walk some fine line. Fred Hale Sr. mentions Robert Randolf and the Family Band, but on the basis of the "Live at Wetlands" cd I have, I'd add a word of warning; RR doesn't noodle, but goes to the other extreme; too many tracks are stomping crowd-pleasers with too much singing and too little soloing for my liking. Great fun on the night, I imagine, but rather unsatisfactory as a cd, and not deserving of multiple listenings.

For Sale:
"Live at Wetlands" cd: as new, Price $1, postage & packing $20

Re-mega-bumping this thread, because as long as I'm here, jam band music will never die, however much MB tries to starve it of attention.
And incidently, I also wanted to post this song by Garcia Peoples that I've just come across. Notice the nod to Grateful Dead in their name - that'll give you a clue to what to expect on this song. Lilting, mellow guitar playing and a nice melody:-



Earlier album, One Step Behind has a more experimental style with cool opening saxophone to the album's title track, which runs for an unusual 31 mins. Worth a listen if you have the time:-

Thanks for your post, Plankton. I've never heard of Goose and was cautious for the first 10 mins, but by 20 mins in I was a total fanboy!!

What a great band! Not just the songs and the musicianship, but the quality of the sound -surely exceptional for a live concert. Also, mercifully, they don't go in for any humming and hahing between numbers either. Stella recommendation!

It's a pity EPOCH is not around any more: he would have so like this band. Perhaps you remember this thread, in which we were all searching for just this kind of music. I'm linking it here because it's a good source of, er, "Videos no longer available"

Oh yes, I remember EPOCH. We collaborated on a tune way back when. I rec'ed Tedeschi Trucks and even Widespread Panic in that thread, but it wasn't received very well.

I just found Goose last year or so while listening to a Sirius Jam Band channel and have been trying to keep up with them a bit ever since. I just missed seeing them live in Denver over the summer too. They started off with Arrow in that ^ NYE concert I posted and it seems incomplete without hearing them segue right into Nights In White Satin (which is something I play a lot):

Their Halloween show was a fantastic mix of covers, if you like that sort of thing like me:

So happy you're enjoying them too! Cheers!
