no. if you werent into jambands or frat rock circa 2001 you shouldn't have any idea! lol
Chadwick stoke's band dispatch had a hit you may have heard called the general
Speaking of second rate jambands...
these bands are right up my alley and I don't mind saying so.yea, g.love is a weird sort of white boy blues rap anchored by a jazz trio with an upright bass. i use the broad frat rock descriptor to describe a scene more than a sound. like dave matthews at the top of the pile, and then bands like dispatch, g.love, OAR, michael franti, etc below. this was a parallel but separate track to the jambands, who were clearly led by phish and followed by like string cheese incident, moe, widespread panic, umphreys, and the disco biscuits.
the best band to play on the regular at sugarbush is soul monde, imo. russ and ray are in trey anastasio's side project bands and they are serious players. it was sweet when i randomly walked into castlerock pub one day after skiing to find them throwing down.
