What we're about
This group is for the people here in LA that are into bands like Phish, The Grateful Dead, Umphrey's McGee, Bluegrass and the Jam Band scene but definitely not limited to that. There's a few different things I'm looking to cultivate here in the form of activities and events.
1) Concerts - When bands come to town, for example Phish at The Forum, I'll organize a pre-party bar meet up so people can have a crew to roll with to the show. Again, this won't necessarily be limited to Jam Band shows, and suggestions are always welcomed. 2) Bar Hangouts - I'll put together some occasional bar meetings where heady people can get together, drink some IPA's, whiskey, and whatever gets them happy, and we can take over the juke box with 20 minute songs until it melts along with everyone's faces.
3) Acoustic Jam - Eventually I'd like this to spawn into a weekly open jam. A lot of people that are into this music play, such as myself, and I'd really like to lead a weekly open jam where musicians can try out new stuff and jam, and people that don't play as often but have the guts to sing and play for an audience in a bar, can let it rip.
