I spent a lot of my early Colorado years touring around following jam bands throughout the state. I only bring that up that somewhat embarrassing little fact to say this; I’ve seen a lot of jam bands. Though Damon Wood’s Harmonious Junk falls loosely into that category, it’s more heavily rock influenced than many of the other occupants. You won’t find any mandolin in here. They also do a lot less aimless wandering, at least on their studio cuts.
Wood’s voice also defies the typical tenor whine of the genre, getting into some growls and fuzz, they borrow more from The Black Keys than The Grateful Dead.
All in all, I can imagine this is a good rockin’ time live and definitely worth a Friday night,
