Jam in the Van is an incredibly unique California-based project that began in 2011. It uses a solar-powered van to serve as a space for artists to perform and then travel to share their work for various audiences at festivals and gatherings all over the country. The goal is to discover and bring new music to everyone, everywhere, in its most organic form. Jam in the Van has grown a respectable fan-base, with thousands watching their videos on Youtube every week. From Gary Clark Jr. to Trampled By Turtles to Jenny O. (and 500 more!), there is never a shortage of feel good tunes for all types of groove.

This week, the Jam Van and its founders are debuting a new monthly venture: “Head Project.” This project brings several different artists into one larger space to collaborate on a song’s arrangement. The group, sometimes proving pretty ecclectic, then showcases their doings at venues nearby. In its first session, “Head Project” invited Love and the Zealous, Ivory Deville, and LAmb favorites Valley Queen to their DTLA headquarters to rearrange a classic: Joe Cocker’s “A Little Help From My Friends.”

And since we’re so lucky, we’ve got the very first clip of their session right here! Watch the awesome video premiere below, and then subscribe to their Youtube page to catch the rest. Happy Jamming!
