- Uriah Heep
- Blue Oyster Cult once as a teenager before they sold out and went pop. Once as an adult.
- George Harrison/Billy Preston/Ravi Shankar and his orchestra. Dark Horse tour 74
- Rod Stewart with Jeff Beck pre-disco days
- Aerosmith of the mid 70s days
- John Hiatt
- Hall and Oates with Todd Rundgren. Very fun.
- Kenny Wayne Shepherd and band. I have to say this guy rivaled George Harrison for the best show and he and his band had such talent, electricity and charisma I thought the whole venue would take off into the stratosphere.
- Nanci Griffith
- Neil Young on his Greendale tour with Emmy Lou Harris
- 70's Valentine Soul Jam: Carl Carlton; The Dramatics; The Chi-lites; The Stylistics
- Chuck Prophet--recently at a tiny venue and he is amazing.

Grateful Dead (once with the Godchauxs, once with Brent Mydland)
EmmyLou Harris (once with the Hot Band, once with the Nashville Ramblers)
