There was an article on the website Popdose the other day about The Blues Project which mentioned that they were an early influence on jam bands. They certainly have the long jams and the cover songs. I could see adding them to the list.

Some housemates of mine saw Umphrey's in Kalamazoo a couple of weeks ago.

One guy sprained both his ankles (and we pushed him around in a "borrowed" wheelchair all Halloween), and a girl got a black eye, both due to "raging too hard". All said the show was epic.

Just FYI, that is the 24bit version, so if you want that one on CD you have to edit it to 16 bit, or click the link I posted above you!

EDIT: Dang, didn't realize I posted the wrong link before- http://www.archive.org/details/um2010-10-22.mk41.flac16

Saw RAQ last night, not too impressed with them. They had a lot of electronica sounding stuff, I guess that's what you could call it. They did play some song that talked about putting spinach in somebodys ear, nose and between their toes...probably the funniest song i've ever heard.

Going by the above listed criteria, Deep Purple, and The Mars Volta for that matter, are clearly not jam bands.
