JamCam Chronicles DVD Series
Releases Wakarusa 2005

(March 10, 2006, Farmington, MI) JamCam Chronicles has raised the bar yet again with this second release of its sophomore season, by offering nearly three hours of video-musical mayhem from the 2005 Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival.

Highlights include The String Cheese Incident's "One Step Closer" (complete with visually stunning glowstick war) from its latest album of the same name, a smoking hot "Warmup" > "Freedom" courtesy Tea Leaf Green, and rousing performances from Jazz Mandolin Project, Perpetual Groove, Little Feat, Moonshine Still, Split Lip Rayfield and Blueground Undergrass. Double doses of both Railroad Earth and New Monsoon, who receive the honorary JamCam "Spotlight Band" two full-length performances and interview treatment, allow the JamCam crew to echo Wakarusa's "Ass Deep in Music" theme for all it's worth.

As if that's not enough, festival host Brett Mosiman from Pipeline Productions along with several Wakarusa festival attendees take us on a "Letter by Letter" tour of the "W.A.K.A.R.U.S.A." festival and camping grounds, while Behind the "Scene" looks at the SCI Fidelity Street Team and An Honest Tune Magazine provide up close insight into two staples of the jamband community.

More than two hours in, the Cheese is back, as JamCam presents the "Getting Negative with The String Cheese Incident" interview, where questions like "what's the worst thing about traveling?" and "what is the one album you would NOT take to a desert island?" provide equally intriguing and hilarious results. Segueing directly into an encore-worthy "Outside & Inside" instrumental jam to finish off an absolute monster Chronicles, the "getting negative" theme is revisited during the credit roll, where a series of SCI interview outtakes give us one more reason to smile. JamCam Chronicles DVDs can be ordered individually, or at a heavily discounted subscription rate at www.jamcamdvd.com.

Would have loved to see some of Umphrey's unforgettable late night set on the list, but I am not dissapointed by any means. I can't wait to relive some of the greatest memories of my life. Thank you JamCam!!

Thanks, cheesehead. Just so you know, Umph declined to participate for the Wakarusa edition, as we had shot them just two weeks prior for the Summer Camp DVD, and they had already commited for the BIG Summer Classic issue, which we covered in Schaumburg, IL not a month later. Thanks for chimin' in. JamCam

One of the best festivals ever, definately dissapointed theres no Particle on the list. Easily one of the best shows ever...and what up w/ Ozomotli?? Great spot, great people, great vibes.

Sorry Lawnboy, but Particle is on the Summer Camp DVD (Season two, Set One, released just previous to the Waka edition) with a 20 minute "Ed & Molly," so feel free to swing by the JamCam site, subscribe, and you can have it all! BTW, tried for Ozomotli, but never heard back from the powers that be, and you also have to remember that some bands (Gov't. Mule, Mofro, etc.) for whatever reasons have thus far declined to participate. Lastly, because we're limited to only so much manpower and there's only so much time in a weekend, it's physically impossible to include everybody's favorites bands, although we do try to mix it up best we can.

Smokestack (from Ann Arbor, MI) provides both the JamCam theme bed and the background music for most of the Behind the "Scene" feature stories we do on JamCam, antelope, and even opens the Summer Camp DVD (w/moe., Umph, Keller, etc.) with one of their tunes, and we'd love to offer similar opportunities to Bump. If you know 'em, please tell 'em to be in touch.
