We’ve always upheld a firm stance that the way to get a session in The Jam Van is for myself or Dave Bell or The Perfect Hippie (AKA the founders) to enjoy your music. That being said, in full disclosure, sometimes one or more of us doesn’t know the bands that we record before we see them in The Van. In those instances, we’re going off of the word of whichever partner is making the selection. So when Dave says to me something to the affect of “they’re My Morning Jacket-ish,” I take his word for it. It makes things a lot easier if you’ve got trust in an operation, and after five long hard years of working together, we’ve got loads of it. So even if they aren’t too “My Morning Jacket-ish” which I’m not saying they aren’t, they’re still going to sound damn good. Because I know my boy wouldn’t lead us astray, and you should know that by now too!
