Hi Big Country!

I like both bands.

Umphrey's is something I have to be in the mood for. I definitely could never go on tour with them, but I will go seem them here and there. They are from my hometown and their alma mater is where I finished Graduate School, so I kind of have to represent, huh?

moe. on the other hand used to be a favorite of mine, but in recent years they have left me a little flat. The last show I saw was at the beginning of '08 and they played a version of "Jessica" that just went on and on and on. I was not impressed. They have so much of their own material. I approve of bands covering songs (like DSO), but it's not as though moe. is an ABB cover band.

I love both. In fact moe is one of my favorites. I usually see them about once a year. We will see them in Atlanta at the Tabernacle in March.

Really like Umph's - just saw them again last weekend in Colorado. The musicianship and connection they have live really soars. It's different jamming than I grew up on with GD, Allmans, etc., but even an old fart with zero hipster credentials like me can have fun with their music. :ugeek:

I like Moe, I do. I hear them a lot on Jam On. I just haven't made the next step of seeing them live or really, really getting into them. No reason I haven't, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

I don't know if moe. fits into the category of being a "younger jam band." They just celebrated their 20th anniversary last week.

Moe always puts on a solid, high energy show. Have seen them many times and they kick my ass every time. I wouldn't consider them a younger jam band, though they do attract young fans as well as older ones.

I have seen .Moe alot of times, and for the most part enjoyed but was never really 'into' them. Could take it or leave it. But the set they played at Wanee a few years ago was off the hook..."Moth > Pit > Moth"... I still listen to it regularly, and now want to see them again since their little hiatus. I think they are finally really coming into their own.

Umphrey's have seen a few times too, and though I guess they are ok live, I really don't get the hype. Not my style. One show I saw of them I think at Langerado got me moving, but I own like Anchor Drops and can't really enjoy it. Safety in Numbers I own and like better, mostly just "Women Wine and Song" with Huey Lewis.
