    Some Kind of Jam 10 is a full weekend music and camping festival, featuring over 30 musical acts on 4 stages, workshops, food and craft vendors, and a myriad of activities.  Presented by Jibberjazz Productions, the festival will take place from April 24-26, 2015, in Schuylkill Haven, PA.  As always, Jibberjazz will unleash a vast array of musical styles including: Jam, Funk, Folk, Bluegrass, Americana, Rock & Roll, Blues, World, Reggae, and more. Jibberjazz artists are drawn from various pockets of the USA.

    The venue is a beautiful 60-acre rustic fairground, featuring outdoor & indoor stages, plenty of camping space, permanent restrooms & showers, nature trails, trout-fishing waters, and electricity access. This event is B.Y.O.B. for those with valid I.D.

    Since 2005, Jibberjazz festivals have drummed up a buzz in the underground by showcasing a truly diverse musical-lineup that blends heavy-hitting out of market bands, national acts, and up-and-coming regional talent. Their festivals have developed a dedicated fan base in the region and continue to grow in some kind of jam 10_1 intensity and attendance, season after season. That trend will continue into 2015 and beyond, as they continue to produce 3 music and camping festivals per season in their quest to find “Tomorrow’s Headliners Today.” Creative line-ups, killer music, and good people are what Jibberjazz is all about. 

    The 2015 Lineup features: PARTICLE, THE MOTET, Consider the Source, Poor Man’s Whiskey, The Mantras, The Big Dirty, The Fritz, The Steepwater Band, Jelly Bread, Los Colognes, Vinegar Creek Constituency, Elm, The Hornitz, and many more notable acts.

    SOME KIND OF JAM 10 Lineup:

    PARTICLE

    Particle began its journey in Los Angeles in 2000 as one of the key pioneers of the emerging ‘livetronica’ music scene. The band created a signature sound that combined elements of Electronica, Funk and Rock with a heavy emphasis on improvisation and sonic exploration, and their influence can still be felt and heard in many of today’s top touring Jam and EDM/Funk bands. Always striving to particlethink outside the box and create unique concert experiences, Particle paired their high-energy dance music with cutting-edge multimedia production, thematic special events, and epic marathon sets that quickly developed a loyal fan base of Particle People spanning genre lines from jam to EDM.

    THE MOTET

    After twelve years of touring The Motet have refined their sound into a dynamic and expressive force, unleashed by an astonishingly talented cast of musicians. The group is now the strongest and most cohesive incarnation of the band yet, showcasing a powerhouse line-up. With roots in funk, afrobeat, disco, jazz, and soul, The Motet keep their audiences in a dancing frenzy by layering rhythms into a style that is uniquely their own. In an age where EDM towers over the dance music scene, The Motet has proven time and again that they can rock a dance party with a beautiful blend of live instrumentation and electronics.

    CONSIDER THE SOURCE

    NYC trio Consider the Source defy easy description. If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, it’d probably just sound like a CTS tribute band. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion”, the band’s music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal.

    POOR MAN’S WHISKEY

    Northern California’s outlaw music bards bring a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock, and old school jam to stages and festivals worldwide. This “High-Octane Hootenanny” will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stompin good time. Poor Man’s Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from equally deep wells of story-telling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans.
