Epic “Mountain Jam” Unearthed!
Jambase.com has unearthed an audio recording of an EPIC version of The Allman Brothers Band performing the tune for which our festival was named, “Mountain Jam,” from June 21, 2000 at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ.
Derek Trucks recalls night they took “‘Mountain Jam’ to Mars” at the outset of a tour with Jimmy Herring filling position left vacant by Dickey Betts. Trucks remembers, “…after the show, we get on the bus, Gregg walks on and goes ‘OK, who’s the fucking Phish fan? That was too much.’”
