Seen some great ones but Allman Brothers in 1998, Steely Dan in 2007 and Stevie Wonder in 2008 were unforgettable

Alman Brothers not sure the year in the 90s and SRV. With SRV hands down being the best.

Calexico in 2007 and Stevie Wonder in 2008 were very memorable for me

Seeing Levon Helm in 2010 is my all-time concert highlight.

Not the greatest show, but my personal fave.

I'm really upset I missed that.

Pearl Jam absolutely killed it in 2010 too.

Allman Bros in 1996. TO this day, I've never heard a better live gig than that day. They sounded unreal.

Phish in 1996 was pretty cool.

Little Feat on the riverboat President, 1988. Best concert I've seen period.

Bonnie Raitt in the mid 80's was not crowded at all and did a great acoustic concert with a minimal band.

Agreed. If I remember correctly, sometime during their set they teased out the intro to St. Stephen as a tribute to Jerry Garcia, who had died in August the year before. Crowd went wild.

Another set that comes to mind is John Fogerty, can't remember the year - late 90s early 00s.

Also, Ive seen him a bunch there so I cant remember the year, but one particular Paul Simon set was incredible...

There was a RAy Charles set in the 90s that was top notch too...

I remember sitting there throughout the day thinking that I was seeing something special. Helm and the Allmans on the same stage on the same day. That was an awesome day.

One of the guys I was with said after the Levon Helm set, "We should just leave now. It's not going to get any better than that." But then the Allmans were even better. Maybe my best day at Jazzfest ever.
