When someone says, "jam band," the idea of wavy-haired, smiling, laid-back guys playing groovy, happy music comes to mind. Creating a Newsense from Manitou Springs absolutely fits that bill. Their music is an exercise in eclectic experimentation, combining blues, funk, bluegrass, folk, jazz, soul, rock and more. The longest song on Creating a Newsense's demo clocks in at 6:28, but their style could lend to longer pieces incorporating some serious improvisation. It should appeal to fans of many genres, inspiring barefoot dancing in the park or grooving at a posh nightclub, martini in hand. For a taste of some sweet jam, check out their Thursday show at the Cedars or head up the pass to Pine Gables this Saturday.
