The first Mountain Jam took place in 2005 and featured only four bands: Gov’t Mule; Medeski, Martin & Wood; Robert Randolph & the Family Band; and Xavier Rudd. Since then it has expanded steadily to its present status, with more than 30 artists appearing on three different stages over the course of the weekend. Among the classic rock bands that have played over the years have been Phil Lesh and Friends, Steve Winwood, Allman Brothers Band, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Widespread Panic, Hot Tuna, Beck, Bob Weir & Ratdog, Dave Mason, Levon Helm and many others.
