Top Jam Band Videos JamBase Curates for Current TV

JamBase Curates for Current TV's 'Top Jam Band Videos'

In honor of Phish's return, Sergio Cilli teams up with JamBase to count down the top jam band videos in this week's 'White Hot Top 5.'

Sergio's 'White Hot Top 5' is a recurring segment on Current TV's weekly television show, infoMania. infoMania is a half-hour satirical news show that airs on Current TV. The show puts a comedic spin on the 24-hour chaos and information overload brought about by the constant bombardment of the media. Hosted by Conor Knighton and co-starring Brett Erlich, Sarah Haskins, Ben Hoffman, and Sergio Cilli, the show airs on Thursdays at 10 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Times and can be found online at

Who the heck came up with this list?

The channel is called CURRENT!

I never heard of band #5

Blues Traveler song was from 1990

Cool Panic Video

Phish DWD? That was only played once on Beavis and Butthead

and The Dead.

Too bad jambase missed the opportunity to promote the dying jamband scene with music that is CURRENT and not nostalgia acts of yesteryear.

Well sorry guys hate to break the news to you for the first time but we are all products.. hate if you will, and I know you will, but at least the people at Current can accept that, and you know what they produce some excellent programming so why dont you step away from Jambase and watch some of the programs they have about OTHER PEOPLE, yes there are other people in the world, with bigger problems than how theyre going to finance the second leg of Phish tour...once again HATE...i dont care because if im the only one who cant accept that arguing over who is/ what is the best "music" is pointless then I dont really care about this site anymore..

well atleast a whole new audience who may have never before listened to jam music will be introduced through this segment.

oh wait, nobody really watches current tv, do they?

i watch current all of the time and do produce tv docs for them... i should retract the use of the word "hate," because i dislike how many whore out the moniker "jam" and thoroughly degrade the music it has created... in similar regard to how "jam"base sometimes gets thought of in an improper light to those who minimize its true outreach. i will try to never use that word again... now that could be good for this planet

The Music Video is the worst thing to happen to music, MTV proved that. Live concert and long rides are what music is about.

Valiums, the "hate" was not directed in your way...mere coincidence of words...i agree that the true definition of the word "jam" is probably way to subjective to ever please anyone...i guess im just upset with the way all the conversation on this site has gone, its all about who's right and who's wrong...maybe we all have different tastes in music, I just think its important that we all have the same taste when it comes to more important issues...and the light Current TV throws on those issues shouldnt be overshadowed by trivial matters..and Peaton more people watch it than you may guess..check it out sometime. thanks.

Video is the future of music just not music video's. Image this...Phish hampton shows video simulcast on a movie screen theater. The theater brings in tubs of beer to sell and sets up a smoking area outside. The charge $10 to get in and watch the live video simulcast. They could do this for NEW YEARS SHOWS for people that don't want to travel or can't afford to. Would you pay to see this??????????

Video of live shows is were music will go in the future the question is will they realize that before they all go bankrupt.

Music videos can be tricky, but if you enjoy live music videos check out my sites or mgmathome08. iClips have already started charging for their videos, mine are still free. The artists I film love music and their passion can be seen on film. Enjoy!

what a terrible attempt at having a "cool dude" host a tv show. he's like hal sparks mixed with that guy they use for the rock hosts on vh1, you know he does the stupid rock of love reunions and all that crap.

and way to make a list of the top 5 videos and putting a video that a band can't stand (DWD)I'm sure phish would have been much happier being left out of this countdown and maybe throwing in something that either a) isn't an artsy piece that doesn't represent anything b) was made within the past oh you know, 10 years.

I give this story negative 5 stars because i hate it so much.

Good I thought I had mentally blocked the DWD video!!! That video is embarrassing to anyone who likes Phish and the band themselves.

It's unfortunate that this is how the music we love is portrayed by the media. The only positive is that it will keep all the trendy hipsters at bay.
