Despite our long-documented, much grumbled-over – rightfully so – disregard for jam music, we have to admit that, after exactly 50 of them, the Jambando and Spring Jambando festivals have survived and thrived to the point where it can be considered a legitimate institution. Founder Dave Mann says he’s worked to dispel the idea that this is a pentatonic orgy for noodlers, and this edition’s lineup confirms that, with sets by local soul masters the Legendary JC’s, post-hip-hop auteur SKIP, Mann’s own funkUs, rockers Everyday Ghosts and many more. Hearty congratulations to the little fest that could. – Justin Strout
