The Big Book of Jam
As long-time musicians know, jamming can be one of the most exhilarating experiences for players. A certain magic is attained by talented musicians playing off of one another. Over the years, a vibrant scene has developed around bands who improvise freely throughout their sets. Inspired by pioneers like the Grateful Dead, jambands have multiplied over the years into their own thriving scene. There are acts like Grace Potter, Avett Brothers, The String Cheese Incident, and Widespread Panic, who thrive on jamming and Jay Blakesberg loves to photograph them.
Renowned rock photographer Jay Blakesberg has been shooting bands since the late ’70′s. His latest coffee table book, JAM, features more than 300 pictures of live concert photography. In Blakesberg’s, JAM, you can practically feel the energy rippling through his photos.
Brooklyn Bowl will be featuring a JAM book release party with Jay Blakesberg, Monday, November 4, 2013. And in Los Angeles Jay will be celebrating and signing at Mr. Musichead in Hollywood on November 14, 2013.
