    For those of us who never attended at the Gaylord, what exactly is Quakejam?

    It was basically an opportunity for local bands to sign up to play on a stage for attendees to watch. Just an organized jam session

    It would be neat if this was brought back. It really hinges on if qukaecon will give you a spot to hold it. Back in the early quakecons they let people just use the main stage at night for quakejam, then they changed it to the byoc stage. In the last few years I remember seeing it happen it was just people in the corner of the byoc with their gear playing. The last year I remember seeing it as an organized thing was in 06 might have gone on a few years longer, not something I ever went out of my way to addend but it was neat.

    Only thing I see holding this back from returning this year is the main stage has been separated by the exhibit hall 1 door, this year they clash no?? I can see late night security already thin having a issue with not enough bodies to keep the separation secured.
