JAM IN THE VAN, the solar-powered mobile music studio
JAM IN THE VAN is a solar-powered mobile music studio and discovery platform that is set to travel over 10,000 miles this year. Housed inside an RV, it greatly differs from typical music studio setups and is able to hit the road in search of music to record.
The one-of-a-kind platform was founded in 2011 by music fans Dave Bell, Jake Cotler, and Louis Peek in Venice, California. The RV was outfitted with a full HD audio/video production suite, enabling it to capture unique live music performances at festivals and other venues across the country.
According to psfk.com, over five hundred sessions have taken place inside the mobile music studio, with a mix of both emerging and already established musical acts including Gary Clark Jr., George Clinton, Matisyahu, Misterwives, Allen Stone, ZZ Ward, Robert DeLong, and The Orwells.
JAM IN THE VAN has helped introduce music fans to some great new acts, putting on shows in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Bonnaroo and SXSW. When not on the road, the bright and colorful RV hosts musicians in its hometown, and all of the performances can be seen on their official YouTube channel.
This year looks set to be a big one for the solar-powered mobile studio, which will be traveling over 10,000 miles to bring music fans more than two hundred sessions from buzzworthy bands at festivals across the U.S. They are taking over SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas this month and have partnered with GQ to showcase over forty bands at the ‘GQ x JAM IN THE VAN HOUSE’. The founders said:
“2015 will be the most prolific year to date for JAM IN THE VAN. We’ll travel more miles and discover more great music than ever before. We plan to expand our content slate and increase our reach to cover a broader fan base than ever before.”
