The jam band craze began in the 1960s with the infamous Grateful Dead. Grateful Dead fans known as deadheads inspired the movement because of their intense fandom. At concerts, the Grateful Dead would put on performances that featured jams, or extended musical improvisations. These jams brought livelihood and excitement to the shows because they ensure that each fan got a unique experience since the jams were different for every show. However, deadheads were such intense fans that they would follow the grateful dead from venue to venue and truly experience the band through these live jams every step of the way. In addition, they began to film these jams and trade them with one another. While many bands have intense fan bases, there are not many with the same dedication as the Grateful Dead fans Because of this, the Grateful Dead was one of the only original jam bands based on the original definition. Therefore, the definition of jam bands has widened to include multiple genres of music. Groups considered to be jam bands today range from DJ and electronic music to progressive bluegrass and progressive rock bands. The jam band scene has evolved to include jam band festivals and concerts, reminiscent of the times of the Grateful Dead tours and diehard fans. The culture of jam bands and fan dedication today is most typically found in music festivals. Music festivals tend to attract these types of dedicated fans and concertgoers. They are able to do this by putting on the best form of entertainment through compiling strong lists of artists to perform at these festivals who then do their best to put on the most enjoyable and unique sets in order to keep the crowd excited and interested.
