Havn't seen them but love what I've heard of Sister Hazel's live album. Same with Third Day. Jeremy Camp put on a great concert. The Blue Man Group for shear wonderment.

Marillion

Yes

Caedmon's Call

Jars of Clay

Switchfoot

 

And I'll concur with Caprae that Third Day and Jeremy Camp (w/Randy Williams on guitar) do put on great live shows.

 

I've never seen Dream Theater or Spocks Beard live, but hope to do so sometime this decade. Actually, there's a lot of bands/artists that fit that bill...

Or as they were known when I was in high school:

The Rolling Stoned

 

And what my son called them last week:

The Rolling Bones

 

I thought the last one was both funny and rather appropriate given how skeletal both Mick and Keef look these days. Neither should wear spandex.

Wow, I hadn't thought about him in years. :D

 

I've never seen him solo but he was in a sort of Australian cowboy thrash band called The Johnnies, and they were pretty good.

I have their first album and like it quite a bit, but his three solo albums on Spooky Records are really awesome (his first solo album is also pretty good). I also really like his work with The Beasts of Bourbon.

Psychedelic Breakfast, or I guess they're just called The Breakfast now.

 

I don't have a list of 5 as I just don't get out that much anymore. :cry:

 

Funk Philharmonic kick a lotta ass.

 

I used to see Joe Tiano like weekly and got a lot of inspiration from him.

 

BB and the Stingers, well "BB" is shocking on guitar.

 

Anyway, except for The Breakfast, or the Philharmonic those are local guys I dig.

check out some comedy I've done:

I haven't seen Junior Brown live either. When he used to play around here I didn't know who he was. I did see him on Austin City Limits and it was an awesome musical display plus just enough shtick to make it entertaining as hell.

 

I have only seen the Stones once in 1983. It was great show. If you haven't seen them live, you owe it to yourself to see them at least once. I doubt I would see them again though, I just hate the huge arena shows. I have never liked big crowds and it is a pain to get to and from these events. Now if I could see them in a club setting, I would be very happy indeed. Seeing the big touring bands these days is almost like seeing them on TV. You really don't feel like you are part of something. I want to see the guitar players hands and hear his amp, not a video screen with a huge delay from half a mile away till the sound gets to me.

With returning from being in England these past 3 years, and now being deployed, it's been a while since I've been to a concert. I believe some of the last concerts I've been to, and in which I was stage hand/security were:

 

- Third Day

- Newsboys

- Big Tent Revival

- Clay Cross & Jaci Valesquez

 

I would have to say out of those, Third Day really rocked, followed very closely by BTR, who have since disbanded on good terms.

BTW, When I saw The Scorpions on VH Monster's Of Rock tour back in '88, I was really impressed with their live sound! That was the one and only time I ever caught the Scorps live. Has anyone seen them lately, and do they still rock live?
