1. What are the odds of a band making it in modern rock-n-roll?

    As it turns out, they’re staggering. See just how long and difficult the road to success can be in the documentary A Band in a Jam. The film chronicles the struggles of Chester Brown, a jam band out of northern Indiana, as they pursue a musical career while still having to pay the bills at home. Watch the band play a seemingly endless string of bar venues, culminating in their very first outdoor festival which they completely managed themselves. With commentary from industry professionals and a statistics professor along the way, you’ll see how hard it can be to choose between chasing your dream and taking care of your loved ones.
