Jam bands

Any jam band fans here? I’ve seen this relatively new jam band names Goose. I’ve seen them 4 times since June. An incredible group that gets progressively better each show.

 

 

 

Both these shows were incredible live. I was able to see them at stubs & ACL weekend one. I highly recommend this band to any jam band fans.

Haven’t heard of them. I’ll check them out when I get a chance.

My concert going days are pretty much over but I used to be big into jam bands and improvisational music in general. A friend and I once considered publishing a magazine/website devoted to jam bands similar to Relix or jambands.com. We even registered a domain. But ultimately we decided it would be too hard to make money at it and didn’t go any farther than that.

Best jam band that not many people know about: KVHW. All their live stuff is up on archive.org. (They were only around for 2 years and never entered the studio.) They were a perfect jam band. Every song was jammed out and very different every time played. Their name came from the initials of the band members: Steve Kimock, Bobby Vega, Alan Hertz, Ray White. They killed. Sadly, I only got to see them twice. Once at the Henry J. Kaiser in Oakland and once at Wetlands in NYC.

Can you link a live set? I’d love to check them out!

I enjoy the incarnations of the Grateful Dead and Umphrey’s McGee.  

Are you familiar with pigeons playing ping pong?

Yeah, Goose is legit. Actually touring / co-headlining with Trey Anastasio Band this week and doing some collaborations across the sets.

I like some of Marco Benevetos stuff. And if you want some old school classics find some mid 90s Widespread Panic live shows (before Mike Houser got sick). Also, Medeski Martin & Wood did some amazing experimental jammy jazz stuff.

I’ve been watching clips of goose & Trey on YouTube, the shows look amazing. I’m want to go to Goosemas in Denver. Also, wide spread panic is great too…. I put on a few song from Medeski- very enjoyable. Thanks for the recommendation!
