One of the sets at Bonnaroo we look forward to ever year is the fest’s famed SuperJam. Bonnaroo 2013 actually featured three SuperJams, including one dubbed “Rock N’ Soul Dance Party Superjam” that took place late night on the Saturday of this year’s festival. Host Jim James and musical director John Oates put together a ridiculous band that included Meters drummer Zigaboo Modeliste and Family Stone bassist Larry Graham.

Bonnaroo organizers have put together a documentary about the “Rock N’ Soul Dance Party Superjam” which shows the work that’s put into the event as well as performances from the set itself. Following up on the first installment of the doc, which focused on Jim James leading the band through “Instant Karma,” and a second installment featuring Alabama Shakes front woman Brittany Howard, comes the third installment. In the latest installment, we see Oates and James working out an arrangement of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up.” It’s crazy how much work went into each and every song the ensemble performed.

Let’s take a look…
