For me my top 3 Artists I've seen insanely amount of times are (I bet it's no surprise to many)

Les Claypool (Primus, Sausage, Frog Brigage/Fancy Band, Oysterhead) - 120+ ( I can't find my breakdown countdown I figured out awhile ago) -

Earliset was Primus in 1992 ... Favs were Sausage in Chicago 94, and early Primus shows...fav Frog/Fancy was 7/22/05 Fancy w/ Ler & Tim Sit-in and 10/9/05 Urbana IL w/ sickest Here's To The Man ever played...



Skerik (Frog Brigade/Fancy Band, Critters Buggin, Crack Sabbath, Taint Septet, GAT, Duo Buggin, DKG's, Full HABMX Sets, COTW, Headhunters, Skerik & Friends, Skerik & Mike D Duo's, many many sit-ins (not factored in) Etc., Etc.) - 90+

Earliest was Frog Brigade back in 00/01 which how I discovered Skeriks insanity. Favorite show was 5+ Hour Crack Sabbath Marathon @ Rainstock in Vashon, WA in I believe 05 or maybe 04?



Mike Dillon (Frog Brigade/Fancy Band, Critters Buggin, GAT, Duo Buggin, HABMX, GoGo Jungle, DKG's, Ani DiFranco, Skerik & Mike D Duo sets, Full Galactic Sets, many many sit-ins (not factored in)) - 60+

Also got into Mike D via Les Claypool back in 00/01. Probably favorite Mike D show was HABMX show back in 03 in Chicago w/ all of 4 people in attendance ... and they played probably even a bit more intense than usual!!

Top is probably Les Claypool, even though I didn't start going to his shows until 2001, when my mind was utterly blown one night in DC. Discovered Skerik that night as well, although I thought he was a huge black dude the first couple times I saw him play...probably been to 50 Claypool events.

Saw Phish 38 times in 5 years. Bunch of really fun shows. Most redonkulous: Big Cypress. That was something. My first show (11-21-98) still stands out as pretty badass, especially on paper. By "on paper" I mean looking at the setlist, hippies.

Not sure who the #3 title would go to. Maybe Buckethead? I've seen him play 20 times or so. I've probably seen a bunch of bands play 20 times, though. Buckethead definitely stands out. As does the Critters Buggin/Duo east coast fall tour of which I had the pleasure of attending for a fabulous week in my VW bus with a neato girl back in 2004. Those shows were...I don't really have a word for what those shows were. More like: :shock:

But now that I think about it..... Mofro might outnumber them all. I remember one year at Jazzfest seeing Mofro about 5 times in a week and I hadn't even planned on it - they were just everywhere that year. And being in FL, with all the Langerados and Culture Room shows and Bamboo Room.... I bet Mofro could be #2 but totally by accident.

I used to not dig Mofro that much. But Adam Scone rocks and I really started to dig em a couple years ago.

i don't have any lists so i can not give precise numbers to most bands, but the top three would still be a lot lower than any of what you have to offer. there are a couple of bands i have seen more than 10 times, but not really much more.

court jesters crew / soulfood international is a local reggae / ska band i have been following for more than 10 years now. first time i saw them they only had a demo tape. it is hard to count shows because there are so many incarnation of the band. i saw the original CJC about 7 or 8 times, soulfood international with the good old boys sessions (a couple of different roots reggae singers and hiphop mcs) about 4 or 5 times, with dr. ring ding abother 5 times, with rico rodriguez (jamaican jazz trombonist) twice, with ken boothe (jamaican roots reggae singer) once, with laurel aitken (ska ledgend) once. so that acutally adds up to a lot of concerts.

i have seen the skatalies ten times now.

i have seen tea leaf green 8 times, but only festivals so far.


i still go to see more than 50 shows a year i would say, not counting numerous festivals.

I am so much more into variety that I don't generally go see the same bands unless they come to me

with the exception of P Groove who I know I have seen more than any other and will travel to see. Not a clue how often but I know its more than any other by a factor of 10 or more

I do know I've seen Pink Floyd 6 times on 3 tours and that ranks up there at the top of my musical experiences

i'm w/ bill and joel, pgroove is easily at the top of my list of the bands i've seen the most. after them, dubconscious would probably be my #2, and i'm not really sure who my #3 would be?

I'm sure my Buckethead count is way up there but his shows seem to meld together as he don't stray from the standard set much...

But my all time favorite Buckethead show was Deli Creeps opening up for Les in Denver in 02 or 03? I actually made the drive just to see the Creeps and they did not dissapoint. Nothing like driving 30 hours roundtrip for a 45 minute set :shock:
