99. Phish
Like many successful Jam bands, Phish enjoys a devoted fan base, and like any top improvisational group, the genres they draw from are quite diverse. Each Phish concert can count on Rock, Jazz, Progressive Rock, Bluegrass, Reggae, Country and Blues infusions throughout the sets, and they always seem to draw a crowd as unique as their music. As such, comparisons to the Grateful Dead are commonplace and if any band could come close to drawing any kind of accurate comparison (in terms of culture, though not necessarily in terms of musical style) it would be Phish). Although they do have a massive following, a Phish catalogue does not have any traditional “hits” and there might be an incorrect assumption that the “Jam Band” category is filled in Cleveland.
