Top Five For Me

Umphrey's McGee- The link I posted is audio of the last time I saw them. The Soul Food I>Soul Food II>Soul Food III to start set two was really good.
https://archive.org/details/um2017-02-02.mk41.flac16

Greensky Bluegrass- The link is for the last time I saw them. Really good two sets than a Last Waltz Tribute encore. Leap Year and Broke Mountain Breakdown are good jams
https://archive.org/details/gsbg2016-11-26.mk41.flac16/gsbg2016-11-26mk41t1 0.flac

Tedeschi Trucks Band- The mix of all there influences makes them so great. Plus Derek is probably the best guitarist out there right now. Idle Wind is great as the centerpiece song.

Phish- I think they have found there groove. Just finished listening to summer 2015 and all the shows where enjoyable. I'm glad they continue to include new music and Fuego has turned into a nice jam vehicle.

Jason Isbell- Saw him for the first time last fall. It was the songs that had me on the edge of my seat all night plus his band can play.

Blackberry Smoke gets alot of love around here. I don't get it, the music is missing something.

Saw Marcus King Band earlier this year and it was a great show. New Mastersounds where quite good when I saw them.

Big Something never disappoints - check them out if you get a chance.

Pink Talking Fish is blast.

Joe Russo's Almost Dead. Those guys take the Dead songs you know and love to a another level.

Toots and Maytals - Probably isn't touring much these days but man what a show.

Anything with Derek Trucks, Luther Dickerson, Jimmy Herring or Jack Pearson in it.

Off the top of my head...

TTB

Vintage Trouble


Could never get into Umphreys beyond some of their covers. Too much keyboard/synth.

Gina, your post reminds me of this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YymGJKhGgY of which sadly, to an extent, describes me also.

Interesting lists. I've seen most of the folks on these lists and I am curious as to what criteria you are using? For me, I need something that is upbeat, I can dance to it (or slam to it), something that moves me and some folks who's talent blows me away. I saw Tom Petty on 3 separate tours and while he's incredibly talented, he played the exact (and I mean EXACT) same shows and bored me to tears after seeing a few of them. I saw Miranda Lambert and fell asleep. Dickey's great, if he shows up. Ryan Adams is so full of himself, it often distracts from the show. Phish can be hit or miss, and it's a sausage fest. So here's some gas for the fire:

Drive-by Truckers and Jason Isbell never disappoint
St. Paul & the Broken Bones thrilled me and got me dancing like few shows can.
I've never seen a bad Gov't Mule show.
The Pixies are always fun. X are incredible
Bruce Springsteen is still the greatest live act there ever was, bar none. Sorry, not even debatable, just a fact.
Iggy Pop still brings it at 70, stage diving and ripping it up like few others.

I agree on Pearl Jam - playing some of their best shows ever last tour (IMO)

Off course the Mule (show last Wednesday night may have been the best they have sounded to me yet and I have been going a long time)

Really enjoyed Ryan Adams and the Unknown Band a week or so ago - the whole band puts out a great sound.

Nothing else reallly like TTB out there - a big talented bunch of musicians

Lastly I will go with Dan Baird and Homemade Sin (100% pure rock & roll)
