The June Lake Jam Fest is a one of the newer events sponsored by MonoArts Council (MAC). This is the first event focused solely on the music festival. Our 2017 event will be 2 days – September 9th and 10th.
The goals of the Jam Fest is to bring a rich musical event to Mono County for residents and visitors, to provide a fundraising event that raises funds to support music instruction opportunities for children via MAC sponsored music camps and school music programs. Mono County Office of Education (MCOE) is partnering with MAC by providing instruments (ukuleles, guitars and percussion) for the children music programs.
Why Jam Band Music? What Is a Jam Band?
“Please cast aside any preconceptions that this phrase may evoke. The term, as it is commonly used today, references a rich palette of sounds and textures. These groups share a collective penchant for improvisation, a commitment to song craft and a propensity to cross genre boundaries, drawing from a range of traditions including blues, bluegrass, funk, jazz, rock, psychedelia and even techno. In addition, the jam bands of today are unified by the nimble ears of their receptive listeners.” ~Dean Budnick
Many of today’s jam bands have brought widely varied genres into the scene. A jam band festival may include bands with electronic, folk rock, blues rock, jazz fusion, psychedelic rock, southern rock, progressive rock, acid jazz, hip hop, hard rock, and bluegrass sounds. The contemporary jam scene has grown to encompass bands from a great diversity of musical genres. (from Wikipedia)
