Creekend: Max Creek

When: Fri., Oct. 9, 10 p.m. and Sat., Oct. 10, 10 p.m. 2015

Connecticut’s Max Creek have been jamming for more than four decades. Though they never quite became a household name, the band has left an indelible mark on the improvisational jam scene. At their peak in the late 1980s, Creek averaged more than 200 shows per year. Melding rootsy American rock with styles such as calypso, soul, jazz and reggae, they proved influential to subsequent generations of jam bands. Phish’s Mike Gordon, for one, has frequently cited the band as an inspiration — and has been known to show up onstage at Creek shows from time to time. Max Creek play a two-night run at Nectar’s this weekend — dubbed “the Creekend,” naturally — Friday and Saturday, October 9 and 10.

Price: $15/20
