Season 3 will see us focusing on all things festivals, from anniversary retrospectives to interviews conducted backstage at events and much more. “FESTIVAL!” maestro himself Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, who previously appeared on Episode 21 of the podcast in 2018, recently chatted with Nate about the band’s new album, Grass Roots, which contains songs from artists that were especially influential in the band’s formative years. In addition to discussing Leftover Salmon’s legacy as pioneers of jamgrass, Vince also shared some his favorite festival experiences.
Andy, the podcast’s Season Three festival-going correspondent, already recorded an interview with a member of The Disco Biscuits at the recently held Summer Camp Festival in Central Illinois. AK will also be connecting for interviews at the Blue Ox Festival in Eau Claire, Wisconsin later this month and he’ll be heading out to High Sierra Music Festival in California at the end of the month to speak with artists there as well.
All of Team JamBase will be heading out to Boston this summer for JamBase’s 25th Anniversary Quadranscentennial Silver Jubilee. Umphrey’s McGee, Club d’Elf, the Jennifer Hartswick Band, Holly Bowling, Ron Artis and more will help us celebrate our 25th anniversary over four nights at three different Boston area venues this August.
Another significant anniversary taking place this summer is the Watkins Glen Summer Jam that was held in 1973. Summer Jam was held on July 28, 1973, at the Watkins Glen racetrack. It’s believed around 600,000 people came out that day to see The Allman Brothers Band, the Grateful Dead and The Band. Alan Paul is set to publish an incredibly insightful book Brothers & Sisters: The Allman Brothers Band and the Inside Story of the Album That Defined the ’70s that dives deep into Summer Jam. We’ll be using that as a bit of a guide for our upcoming episode focusing on the 50th anniversary of Summer Jam.
Those are just a few of the exciting episodes of The JamBase Podcast we have planned for Season 3. Look for the first official episode to drop next Thursday, with subsequent episodes slated to follow each Thursday.
