Who's that? Is that you? Well, he's pretty good and has a great voice, IMO. Good songs, easy on the ear. "Anytime" listenability.

Lucinda Williams is always good value both live and studio album wise.

Everyone needs some Richard Thompson in their collection too.

Ryan Adams and Cardinals (this is a must)

Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, Son Volt

Keller Williams

Yonder Mt. String Band

Railroad Earth


shit I even enjoy Dave Matthews Band

i'd keep away from

Disco Biscuits
Umphrey's Mcgee

personally I think these bands have just hijacked jam audiences and care nothign about there fans or the environment the dead helped build and there music has nothing to do with the tradition of the the grateful dead

Umphrey's and Bisco, are fucking awsome. They did not destroy shit. There proally some of the most talented muscicians out there. Just cuz they dont play exactly like "DEad" doesnt mean people who LOVE the dead shouldnt go see them. Have an open mind about things for god sakes. At least their original, and don't base their fame on cover tunes, like DSO

along with the ymsb, wilco, ryan adams, my morning jacket recommendations i'd like to add

no river city- great country rock band from atlanta. beautiful songs. reminds me of ryan adams whiskeytown days

cornmeal!!!!- if you enjoy yonder these guys are great. no mandolin, but they have a drummer. their live shows are intense. their fiddle player is great and their banjo player is frank zappa's doppleganger. great songwriters(very catchy stuff) great harmonies

greensky bluegrass- from michigan. more traditional bluegrass, but all very talented

steep canyon rangers-very tasteful bluegrass. make old forms seem new without converting to extremes bands like yonder do. i believe the ibma named them 'up and coming' band of the year

kings of leon- for rockin out with an experimental twist. great if you like being a hipster

crooked still-singer sounds like alison krauss.

avett brothers- bluegrass on emo. jk. very passionate singing and high energy shows. not the most talented group, but they use what they have to the upmost extreme. they play like 300 shows a year

old crow medicine show- great songwriting, unique voices, occasionally goofy lyrics.
