    After phish's final summer tour ends at coventry, who do you think will step up as the dominant jam band. When I say dominant, I don't mean superior to the other great jam bands, I just mean who will be the hottest ticket? My vote goes to Moe.

    I can see Huey Lewis and the News finally stepping up.
  6. String Cheese! Eh, they're already pretty big I guess. Maybe no one will step up so then they will be FORCED to reserect Jerry Garcia.

    the cheese is almost at an equilibrium with phish, but also i think the big wu are awesome and i know theyre playing at summerfest(a big music festival in milwaukee, wi) with some bigger bands...who knows as long as some one is jammin everyone can feel groovy
  8. my guess would have to be keller williams, widespread, and gov't mule. i bet the dead stick around for a while too. i could be completely wrong though. who knows, maybe christina agulera will grow some dreads, eat some lsd, and show the world what she's really about. then again, maybe not. lovin' you.

    my vote is totally going to moe. i'm a huge fan of their work and lately... all their shows have been incredible. i love being in the following right now too while its still smaller. once phish is out... moe. is gonna take over. i like moe. better than phish anyway. im gonna miss moe. at all the smaller venues though. i mean... when's the next time im gonna see them in a bar in vermont... *sigh* but definitely moe. is taking over the scene.

    peace and love

    Moe. is awesome in concert, but I just fell in love with Keller's music (also AMAZING live). I could care less who takes "the role" as mentioned before by Mary, I prefer live shows in smaller venues so that will be missed if one of my favorites gets huge. But I am still upset about the break up, and can't wait to see them in 2 weeks!

    I'm gonna step up! Once I get some recording equipment, I'll be able to make an album, all by myself. No Producers, No Engineers, Just Me, Playing All The Instruments, Singing all of the vocals.

    when the G. Dead went down, the smaller scenes got a huge jolt, and I'm hoping that this happens again.

    On the Phish hiatus, SCI really pounded it and tried to grab that audience....
    with Panic going under... yeah... they said hiatus too. It's only a matter of time,
    Gov't Mule can't lose another member.. we lost Allen Woody four years ago, and thier appeal is closely related to radio rock crowds, so they'll do well, when Warren isn't with some other project... like the Dead.
    LoS is about done, although the official reports are mixed. For me no Drew , no Salmon.

    I'd like to see Hookah and Tea Leaf Green step up, and I'd like to see some of the unrecognized monsters get a break.

    Oh, Michael Byrd? will you rename yourself with a weird glyph? Prince did.
    (Prince is a multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer)

    My guess would be String Cheeze.I really don't see anybody else picking up the slack. Truthfully, I'd love to see some of the smaller acts finally take off.

    Honestly, I hope that Someone comletely new just comes out of nowhere. but otherwise I see String Cheese has got it and probably Ekoostic Hookah. Keller Williams also rocks but I don't see him having the momentum that Phish and the Dead have had. Actually I don't see anyone having THAT kind of momentum. Maybe Bela Fleck.

    well since panic is not touring right now i am gonna go with MOE. They put on awesome shows, the second set is always what gets me.........

    bela doesn't jam the way a mobile following demands/seeks.

    I remember hearing them do the same song twice in one night!
    Cheese needs to know who and what they are and if they want to continue that.
    THey really aren't ready.

    Bring on the mid-level blossoming!!!
  17. My poor poor panic... i hate to hear it sound so "Phishy" (haha no pun intended) but moe. is kick ass in show, them or SCI gotta step it up they both are awesome!
