Ever do that? I would like to. What songs did you ya'll play?
I hate those jams, but other people seem to dig it.
The Chicago Sound sort of recreated this at every show.
I've not done one where all bands come up together and jam, but I've done various jams at the end when other musicians make it to the stage for some reason. That can go a lot of ways, but I normally like playing them more than watching them. The one I most enjoyed occurred at the end of a benefit. I work with a non-profit (Ben's Encore) that supports music programs in the Detroit area, which is named after Ben Borowiak, a local musician who died too soon. We hold several annual shows and at the end of our Bennyfit a few years ago we ended the show with a whole bunch of musicians on stage and in the crowd playing a song Ben wrote. It was a real lovefest and not something I'll forget. I don't have video, but someone created the gif below (I'm on the far left).
Nothing like a good ole fashion flusterclux!
The example in the OP was of course very symbolic and just the fact that it took place would have been more than enough for the audience, whether it worked musically or not.
The song to play?
Keep on Rockin' In the Free World
I have done some things like this with varying results. The best was last November I was the main guitarist in a Last Waltz tribute show. We ended with the core band playing Don't Do It, but the song before that we had ALL the guest vocalists and musicians come up for I Shall Be Released. It was like 20 people onstage singing it together...really special moment.
yep! a clusterpluck to end the evening.
Clutterbuck....actual real name. Imagine living with that, every time you make a mistake...the easy reply is already warming up in the bullpen.
Luckily he's a really big dude, assuming you're talking about Cal.
Cover bands? "Purple Rain" of course.
Our singer can't make it to this weekend's gig so we are splitting the night with another band. I can pull off 3 sets but we need 4 or 5 sets. The other band does pretty much all country so it will balance out.
Share our drum kit, 2 bass Amps, individual guitars, mic everything. The plan is they play first, then us, then they play again then us again. At the end we will do a 5 song tag, both bands.
Here's the set list for the end.
Blow at high dough
Keep your Hands to Yourself A
Honky Tonk Woman G then A
Johnny B Goode A or E
Brown Eyed Girl G
Wagon Wheel A.
We will play the first song, then call up the other guys to join us. Our bass player will switch to acoustic for the rest of the set. Our drummer will play the first 3 songs and then their drummer will finish with the last with songs. We will all take turns with the verses, trading off.
Could be interesting, could be a shitshow lol. We shall see.
