Budnick sez: A professional jamhead

By John Uhl
Daily Music Edito
Since Labor Day, John Scofield
played at The Ark and The Slip and
Deep Banana Blackout performed at
the Blind Pig. Ekoostik Hookah and
The String Cheese incident were at
the Michisan Theater last weekend.
while the Disco Biscuits will play
there this weekend. Medeski, Martin
& Wood and moe. will swing
through town before the end of the
Since the break-up of the Grateful
Dead and the rise in popularity of
the group Phish, an entire subculture
has evolved around bands that mix
several types of music and a pen-
chant for lengthy improvisations into
a groovy, rock-heavy stew. And Ann
Arbor has become a standard stop on
the criss-crossing routes of these
bands' many tours.
The following is from an inter-
view with Dean Budnick, editor of
the Website jaunhinds.com and
author of the books "The Phishing
Manual" and "Jam Bands."
The Michigan Daily: In a couple
sentences characterize the "jam
band" scene. What makes a jam
band a jam band?
Dean Budnick: The jam band
scene of today encompasses a range
of different sounds. Bands that are
committed to improvisation but
draw on a number of elements,
including folk, funk, bluegrass, jazz,
psychedelic rock, electronica and
that are sort of unified by their com-
mitment to bring improvisation into
a live setting.
The jam band thing is also unified
by the fans, because there's nothing

inherently similar between The Slip,
the Disco Biscuits and String Cheese
Incident, except the fans of all those
groups are certainly looking for sim-
ilar things in terms of what the
bands produce in concert.
TMD: Would you say that this
movement got started at one particu-
lar time?
DB: I think it's sort of come in
waves. I was a big Phish fan, actual-
ly I grew up in New England in the
late-'80s. In '92 they had the very
first H.O.R.D.E. tour. They only did
a couple dates, but it was Phish,
Widespread Panic, Aquarium
Rescue Unit, Blues Traveler and
Spin Doctors. And that was to some
degree the first sort of unifying of
the scene and that was done on a
very grass roots level before the
H.O.R.D.E. tour became the big
amphitheater bloated monstrosity it
would eventually become.
I would say that something has
changed in the last two or three or
four years where there just have
been many, many more bands. It's a
very sort of chicken and egg circular
relationship. There are many more
fans who are being drawn to this
type of music, partially led by bands
like Phish and Widespread Panic and
certainly String Cheese is coming on
strong, gaining momentum. But as
there were more and more people
going to these shows, this offered
more and more bands the opportuni-
ty to quit their day jobs, to focus on
their craft, which only made their
music and their stage shows and
their performances better.
TMD: l've been listening to the
Allman Brothers forever and when I

entered high school I really started
listening to Phish a lot and tried to
catch a couple of their shows a year.
But in terms of this current thriving
scene, it's really something I've
noticed fairly recently.
DB: I think there's no question
that the scene is exploding, but I
think it has a long way to go as well
in terms of getting more mainstream
recognition. I think it's great to have
a vital, supportive scene. On the
other hand, I think it's great when
these musicians can make albums
and sell hundreds of thousands to
really help support their art.
TMD: I wanted to ask you just a
bit about the question of whether or
not Phish is breaking up. I talked to
John Polansky of Ekoostik Hookah
last night, asking him how he
thought that might impact his fan
base or the scene's fan base in gen-
eral. He thought that the middle-
level bands, not any one of them in
particular, but that a whole bunch of
them might pick up some of the
slack leftover from Phish not touring
as regularly. He felt that sometimes
the fans get disenchanted when the
arenas get bigger and they don't get
to see the bands in as intimate of a
Do you have any opinions on
whether this is such a grass roots
phenomenon at this point that people
are going to be more faithful to the
medium-famed bands or that the
scene has the possibility to produce
a slew of bands that sell a million
records and sell out huge arenas or
DB: I think this is an interesting
time for that very reason. There are a
