Superjam feat. ?uestlove and 'very special guests' (This Tent: Saturday Late-Night, 12:15 a.m.)
A Bonnaroo tradition, the Superjam originated from the festival promoters' experience arranging late-night jam sessions at New Orleans Jazz Fest. The particulars vary from year to year, but it often unfolds as a core group of musicians with a rotating cast of special guests – and some of them have been very special indeed, like Metallica's Kirk Hammett, Primus' Les Claypool and the Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh. This year's host, the Roots' ?uestlove, benefits from experience: he's anchored several Superjams in the past, including a super-sized one in 2007 that starred Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones on bass.
