Our Favorite Live Performances

Since the beginning of the lockdowns, we’ve been treated to any number of unforgettable online performances, performed by artists like Billie Eliish, James Blake, Erykah Badu and more from their home studios. Livestreaming, of course, is nothing new, but it’s taken on a foundational role in giving music lovers support and joy in a time that cries out for both.

The herbal wellness brand Medicine Box has lent its hand since before the quarantine to Jam in the Van, who has provided an open platform for some of this country’s most talented live music acts. Following are a few of our favorite live performances of theirs.

Jam in the van

Since 2011, the Jam in the Van crew has been taking a decked-out van to music festivals all over the country, including Bonnaroo, SXSW, Coachella, High Sierra and New Orleans Jazz Festival. During the quarantine, they’ve been keeping it locked with some brand new online webcasts, including Jam in My Van and Band Appetit. We’ve recently been jamming to episodes from their new show Quaranteen as well as older performances from their vault. You should do likewise, starting with some of our favorite performances from their archives:

The Marcus King Band

North Carolina-based blues prodigy Marcus King has ascended to the top of roots music with a classy, informed guitar style and a solid backup band that recalls The Allman Brothers at times — a big plus in our book. This clip, recorded in Austin, is one of JITV’s most popular.

Circles Around the Sun

We met guitarist Neal Casal at the Shred 420 performance just before he passed away (and also gave their drummer some of our Equanimity tincture). In loving memoriam to his legacy, we’re listening to that day’s rendition of “Immovable Object.”

Dustbowl Revival

Jam in the Van has been hosting a special “Jam in YOUR Van” livecsat with several name live acts since the beginning of the quarantine, kicking it off with an inspirational solo set from Dustbowl Revival founder Zach Lupetin.

Bandits on the Run

Yet another Quarantine performance, this one comes from Brooklyn-based gypsy-punk outfit Bandits on the Run from their RV, somewhere in the wilds of North Carolina.

Smooth Hound Smith

Further west in Nashville is the folk-country duo of Smooth Hound Smith. Here they play a few originals as well as a moving cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Friend of the Devil.”

Medicine Box cannabioid tinctures effects and cannabinoids


Many of these musicians have a difficult time finding rest and recovery on the road. For them, we’ve provided Equanimity to aid them in their quest for some sweet R&R, and they’ve been pretty thankful. Now, we can provide it for anyone else, whether they’re on the road or not.
