Jam Chart for shows in the city of Grand Rapids, MI (19 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1993-08-11 Runaway Jim Grand Rapids, MI 8:50 Jam gets well beyond "Jim" into some interesting exploration. It's August '93, what else would you expect?
1993-08-11 My Friend Grand Rapids, MI 8:36 A wacky but improvisational outro jam occurs, including a "YEM"-like vocal jam.
1993-08-11 Stash Grand Rapids, MI 11:31 Insane, tension-filled, extremely improvisational "Stash." This is a vicious animal. Totally awesome!
1993-08-11 Mike's Grand Rapids, MI 12:14 The 1st jam includes a unique repeated riff from Trey and Mike. 2nd jams in 1993 were often a bit odd, even bizarre. That description fits here, as the 2nd jam is very improvisational, but also unconventional, including "Games Without Frontiers" vocal quotes from Mike.
1993-08-11 Weekapaug Grand Rapids, MI 11:49 Much of the jam is decidedly "Type II" and unsettled in nature, but the return to typical "Weekapaug" at the end is quality as well.
1993-08-11 JJLC Grand Rapids, MI 9:31 Nimble and delicate piano action from Page. Then Trey cranks the energy up several notches with blistering blues work.
1993-08-11 Antelope Grand Rapids, MI 10:38 A jam on the Simpons signal and lots of gnarly, improvisational stuff including rhythm and tempo changes in a semi-evil jam.
1994-11-14 My Friend Grand Rapids, MI 7:37 Another evil sounding outro jam.
1994-11-14 Maze Grand Rapids, MI 11:44 Fish gets the intensity so cranked up during Page's turn that Trey only needs a match to blow this one up. Instead, he adds the flame thrower.
1994-11-14 Cavern Grand Rapids, MI 5:34 > "Lawn Boy", this fun and spirited version retains elements of the Page "standard", resulting in a unique mashup of sorts while, at times, radically altering "Cavern's" set composition.
1994-11-14 Bowie Grand Rapids, MI 25:50 3rd "Big" '94 "Bowie." One of the most exploratory and improvisational versions ever. Includes some wild and crazy interaction with the audience.
1994-11-14 YEM Grand Rapids, MI 20:31 Great jam!
1996-11-11 Tweezer Grand Rapids, MI 15:19 Mike really shines in this great version.
1998-11-11 Gumbo Grand Rapids, MI 12:32 Jam starts off with some funky Clavinet work by Page before Trey sends the jam into an ambient soundscape with a loop. Slight build up at the end of the jam but doesn't get very far.
1998-11-11 BOAF Grand Rapids, MI 8:54 Machine Gun Trey is back at it in this powerhouse, albeit "Type I" version.
1998-11-11 Theme Grand Rapids, MI 11:31 The sentiment shifts from blissful elation to hard edged rocker in this strong, well played "Type I" version.
1998-11-11 Halley's Grand Rapids, MI 24:00 Pretty high octane jam at first. Around 11:00, morphs into a snappy, funky phase. The energy builds as the jam regains momentum and space rage ensues. Jam abruptly segues to "Simple."
1998-11-11 LxL Grand Rapids, MI 13:42 Page solos in the middle of the jam, and then the others gradually join back in to build to a high peak.
1998-11-11 Ghost Grand Rapids, MI 15:47 You enjoy my Ghost while I set fire to this transformer substation leaving behind a smoldering pile of carboniferous goo. [Great groove with awesome funky Page playing with all his toys, then Trey takes the con and leads the jam to an incendiary, multi-summit peak.]
