first time that improvisational music has emerged from the underground, fueled by live shows and word of mouth rather than record labels and radio airplay. The same phenomenon drove the music of the Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers Band, and others in the emerging jam band scene of the 1960s. Unlike acts that play the same songs in the same order night after night, jam bands create a unique experience each show. It is all about the live performance and like-minded people coming together to dance and have fun. Recorded music doesn’t capture the essence of what the music is about. You have to experience it live.
