Is there a whole forum dedicated to playing in a jam band? and that style of music cause I find most of this community to be far off from my musical taste.

Why limit yourself to one genre?

I could ask that of most Ugers.

start a group/join the jam band group that probably already exists

1 exists. Hasn't been used in 2 years and only has 3 members.

Mod Rock forum has a thread on Jam bands. A hundred or so posts in it.

String Cheese Incident ftw!!!!!

I'm sure there's a forum for it out there somewhere. There's this website called google that can be very useful

Can we make this thread to also be about jam band recommendations? I'm interested in the genre but don't really know where to start. The likes of Phish and The Grateful Dead don't really do it for me from what I've heard, but I know there has to be some jam bands out there that I'll really like, since I'm an avid fan of jamming myself.

Some good bands are Assembly of Dust, String Cheese Incident, Govt Mule, Dave Matthews Band. And i would recommend exploring different albums of Grateful Dead because if you listen to some of the early stuff (Workingmans Dead) and then listen to what they did in the 1980s you'll find that they have changed a lot as band. I think like most deadheads that europe 72 was their peak but I love workingmans dead.

Because i think besides blues, jam bands are the only musicians that remain true to the day. You know everything else that is out now is never going to be as good as the music in the 60s and 70s.

Nice one guys, I'll be sure to check those out! I've heard, and really liked, a number of those bands - Ozric Tentacles, Bela Fleck, Garaj Mahal, The Mars Volta, JBT, Xavier Rudd and some others, but other than Ozric and Garaj I didn't really know they were considered jam bands. These String Cheese fellows are getting mentioned a lot, I'll check them out first.

Jackal, if you like those Aussie guys like JBT, Rudd etc, check out Jeff Lang if you haven't already. Not exactly a jam band, but he does do a lot of extended (and severely awesome) solos live. Unfortnately, his youtube vids don't represent this as well as they could, but it's still enough to give you a taste.

I'll put Lang on my "to do" list. Thanks.

What is this "true" you speak of? Seriously, pull something out of your arse. I'm intrigued.

I like jam bands, but sometimes the "noodling" aspect old. I tend to like Jam bands with better vocals/Lyrics like Phish and the Dead. I'm more into jazz right now, kind of just getting out of my jam band phaze

He should have worded his statement differently, but I understand what he means.. 90% of the music I listen to is atleast 30 years old
