My buddy who introduced me to Turnpike Troubadours is a Bossier City guy, and I'm actually hearing them get a good bit of play here in ATX (on the local radio as well as at a college bar near UT)
In turn, I pointed him to Keller (Williams) and the Keels:

Mannn, I need some more Dumpstaphunk in my life. Here in ATX, at a single venue, I will have caught Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band and Soul Rebels this year, and Better Than Ezra is on their calendar too. :bow:
For me personally though, I'd pick Rebirth over j...

For me, getting into jam bands was a puzzling experience. Finding a starting point can be overwhelming when there's just so much to hear.
As I've personally found with several genres, if you can be introduced to the music in a palatable manner, seeing if it fits right for you will be more effect...

Here's a small album I pulled together last year after the Kent State fiasco.
The Va. Tech. has to be the most offensive, hands down, but I couldn't find a picture of that one when I put this album together (not that I put a whole lot of effort into it, honestly).

This complaint is by far the most recurring (then the frame colors).
