Taken from the post Anatomy of a Blues Jam by Larry Berglas on PremierGuitar on a discussion of small amps.

Bill Machrone—“Blues jams are social events—people are there to see each other, eat some food, dance a slow groove, and sing a song like you mean it. You know the other players because you've probably played with them before—so it's cooperative, not competitive playing...a little restraint keeps the focus on the music, not the egos.”
