David Shaw

Oct. 1, 2020

The Revivalists are one of the most active straight ahead Rock n’ Roll bands out there right now. And while they aren’t a “Jam Band” per say as most of the bands are that we feature on this show, they do jam, and fit nicely into the southern rock, ethos. They have a very distinctive sound, and at t…

Band of Heathens

Sept. 20, 2020

When I first heard of Band of Heathens a few years ago, it was because someone slapped the album Duende in my face. It’s a great listen, but it came out like 3 years ago. Since then Band of Heathens have also released a great cover of the Ray Charles album “A Message From the People”. So I was pret…

I’ve developed quite the report with many of the artists on the Jam Band scene in Northern California. Many of them aren’t just great musicians, but also great people who inspire all of us with their great music. Zach Gill’s full time gig is playing keyboards and other instruments with ALO but he’s…

Joan Osborne

Sept. 10, 2020

It’s been six years since Joan Osborne put out a record of original material, but her new 10 song record Trouble and Strife absolutely makes up for the wait. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved the Bob Dylan covers record, and all the live playing she did to go along with it, plus her contributi…

Allman Betts Band

Aug. 13, 2020

I’ve had the pleasure of talking with Devon Allman and Duane Betts both individually and together both on the phone and in person. Each interaction has been totally cool, as both dudes are extremely cool and so knowledgeable and creative. It’s a testament not only to their lineage but likely more i…

Jesse Miller of Lotus

Aug. 6, 2020

It’s getting harder and harder these days to figure out what genre any band fits into. Take Lotus for example. Are they Electronica, Jamtronica, a jam band, a disco band? Who the hells knows. One thing is for certain though, they are wicked good at what they do, and their forthcoming release Free S…

A quarter century since releasing their debut, West Coast Boogaloo, the Greyboy All-Stars are set to release their first record in almost 7 years, Como De Allstars.

In March of 2018 we got word that two stalwarts in the Jam Band world, Tom Hamilton and Holly Bowling were joining forces with a few other musicians to create something new called Ghost Light. Of course we got Tom and Holly on the phone and talked at great length about the project, and where things…

Everyone in the Jam Band scene has some idea of who Mihali is. In case you don't, he's the front man for Vermont's Twiddle.

Mike Mattison

April 25, 2020

I first heard Mike Mattison’s voice, like so man my of us did, listening to Derek Trucks Band records, but truly, the break through was a song called Sweet Inspiration. But Mike is more than just a singer as his now with the Tedeschi Trucks Band, he is a musician, a songwriter, an incredibly talent…
