Jam Session aims to show this community to BTR listeners, while avoiding the stereotypes associated (not everyone who listens to jam bands wears tie dye and gets high). Jam bands are about improvisation, the development and creation of a unique sound, and the general appreciation of the principles of music.
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) December 20, 2006 -
BreakThru Radio (BTR), the Internet's voice of the World's Best Independent Music, will air "Jam Session" with DJ Laura, a sixty minute show packed with the best underground jam bands out there, including Everyone Orchestra, The Disco Biscuits, and String Cheese Incident.
The idea of jam bands is literally in the jam-- it's about improvisation, experimentation, not being afraid to try something new, and creating this great sound in the process. DJ Laura picked more up beat, funkier songs for her first show as a good way to introduce music lovers to jam bands. She really believes in this music and this show, and thinks that it's all around an hour of good sounds that definitely encourage dancing.
Jam Session introduces music lovers to the world of jam bands. The show features well-known artists like The Disco Biscuits, String Cheese Incident, and Deep Banana Blackout, who have played music festivals like 10,000 Lakes, All Good, and Bonnaroo. It will also introduce a collection of jam bands that are just starting to make a name for themselves. DJ Laura, who grew up a Grateful Dead and Phish fan, is an expert and advocate for jam bands.
"Jam bands make up an astonishing portion of the music available to us today. Summertime music festivals around the world cater to this genre and its good-natured fans, proving that there is indeed a musical community," DJ Laura explained. "Jam Session aims to show this community to BTR listeners, while avoiding the stereotypes associated (not everyone who listens to jam bands wears tie dye and gets high). Jam bands are about improvisation, the development and creation of a unique sound, and the general appreciation of the principles of music."
"Jam Session" premieres on BreakThru Radio today, and will air all week. Listeners can download the show to their computer or mp3 players and take a break from the monotony of daily life and just chill.
