I can’t quite place who Christian Letts reminds me of, but I know it’s a character from some movie, and I know as soon as it hits me who he is, I’m going to be like “yep, that’s the guy.”  He’s just got this undeniably creative look and spirit about him.  

To be honest, when he showed up to Jam in the Van I judged a book by it’s cover, which I try never to do, but I seem to always fail at following through on this resolution.  At any rate, I read him as someone who would be too cool to shoot the shit with us.  He seemed like he was going to get in, play his songs and get out.  Boy was I wrong.  He was a warm dude, clearly the leader of his band of minstrels.  He grouped them together on the sidewalk before the session and it was obvious that he was running the show.  Nevertheless he turned out to be extremely appreciative and kind, and above all, he really got what The Van was about.  He came out from his session raving on how fun and enjoyable it was, and that above all else is the key to a successful Jam in the Van, you’ve got to have fun with it.  When you watch these videos you’ll see it, it’s subtle, but it’s there.  Just a little bit of extra happiness that puts these at the creme of the crop.  Now if you could also see and figure out what movie character I think Letts looks like when you watch them, that would be awesome too…
