Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands

See what group of shaggy legends managed to outrank Phish, the Allman Brothers and Widespread Panic

10. Moe.

The sudden end of the Grateful Dead left a lot of jam band fans without a group to follow around the country. This pushed Phish toward becoming a juggernaut of the road, but it also helped out smaller acts like Moe. The five-piece, which formed at the University of Buffalo in 1989, started seeing attendance swell at their shows around the mid-1990s. They go to great lengths to make sure every set is unique, mixing in originals with covers like "The Weight" and "Blister in the Sun." Check them out this summer at Mountain Jam and the All Good Music Festival.
