The set below is one of the highest rated Signal Path shows on The Archive. Signal Path's jamtronica tendencies were evident and apparent in contrast to a lot of the other electronic-oriented material at the time. Enjoy this set from Bonnaroo, 2005. I was in attendance and found myself captivated with Signal Path.
