it's about the jams though brah but really the scene is pretty much stagnant at the moment and none of the newer bands have decent enough song writing skills to be the next Phish or even the next Umphreys or Biscuits. The thing I miss most about the whole scene is that I don't get to see my friends as often because they're all pretty scattered around the country. Where you lived had no bearing on anything during tour though and we saw each other all the time, not so much anymore.

Im not sure you can really pin that on jambands alone. Other bands outside of the jamband scene don't really produce new material at a faster rate. They just don't tour as heavily so the songs don't get played as many times. Sure Umphreys is playing a lot of the same old songs but they have been playing a fair amount of more recent/new songs as well. I only use them as the example because they are really the only jamband I pay attention to anymore. Moe and Leftover have new albums as well though. Whether or not any of them are breaking any new musical ground is debatable but I don't think that's always the most important thing.

Yeah, but there are still alot of talented musicians, its just EDM has blown up.

More and more hip hop artists are using live bands these days, how many more grass bands can the scene support?
