“befuddled if you think that person is serious then ur retarded, i mean they may throw down a 20 minute mmbop but besides that…..” Considering 1) a lot of the crap today’s ‘jamband fans’ listen to, 2) a lot of the crap covered right here on JB.com/Relix, YES I was worried that person was serious. Truth be told, I am afraid they will be making a ‘comeback,’ reinventing themselves and soon to find themselves shaing the bill with bands I respect. So yes, I am am all too aware that person could well have been serious….you watch, they’ll be a headlining act at Nateva, Vibes, etc within a couple of years….sigh.

“hanson is the best jamband. they rip it up on heady grooves, move over WSP!” Are you kidding? What are you, 12? I pray you’re being sarcastic….

Hanson is doing a phenomenal job considering they got no sleep. I’m impressed!
