As in right now, and as a given that the Brothers were and are once more the greatest live act in the world. DTB and Mule are excluded because they would dominate this discussion, with good reason. Offer as many nominations as you see fit; explanations are optional.
My choices are two:
Radiohead and P-Funk.
Radiohead: the greatest studio band since The Beatles, yet an utterly compelling live act. Best, they always (seen 'em 6 times since 00) play 20+ songs/2 hrs. Always.
P-Funk: If you've seen George and co., you know the deal: hard, raw funk that stretches. And stretches. And wipes you out. George doesn't stop until he's told to. Saw 'em at Starland (NJ) in Jan. and Michael Hampton's solo on "Maggot Brain" was one of the (3 or 4) most vicious solos I have ever experienced.

Always wanted to see Radiohead...Love their studio stuff.

Completely off track, one of THE most entertaining bands/performers visually and musically is undoubtdly Peter Gabriel. Always has a top notch band anchored by Tony Levin and David Rhodes on bass and guitar.

Peter has not lost his Genesis flair for The Performance.

Hands down , King's X

The fact that this band cannot get signed to or supported by a major label continues to astound me.

Los Lobos is a ton of energy that you can't help but get caught up in and boogie yer butt off.

randomly, last year I attended the Woodstock Film Festival. I wasn't feeling great and went to the w.c. While in a stall, a man entered the bathroom and took several hits off a bowl (I could hear/smell). So I finished, came out to wash my hands, and what: Peter Gabriel! I did two takes. It was him. So random.

Thanks for that Jeanne - now I don't have to say that Los Lobos is simply fantastic - hmmmmmmm, guess I just did.

I saw King's X on tour for their self titled album. Doug Pinnick is a bass monster!!! Beatlesque vocals, virtuostic instrument playing. VERY good live band...

I think one of the best non ABB shows I saw was in 1993 on the Horde Festival, it was the ARU with Jimmy Herring,Otiel, Matt Mundy, Col Bruce Hampton, Jeff Sipe, and the Count. That was a very impressive,strong and talented lineup.Every musician in that band blew me away. They came out in the middle of the day and just rocked out. Too bad that lineup of the band did not last to long. I highly recommend both of their releases. I would put that incarnation up against any of the many "goofy a$$ jam bands" out there.

Now this is a great question. You mention no ABB or related bands. Wouldn't Gov't Mule, DTB, Oteil and the Peacemakers fall into this category.

And I think you'd also have to do it by Genre as well.
Anyway here goes mine

(only the Mule is in order)

*Blues/Rock category
Mule
Zeppelin
Black Crowes
Robert Randolph
Clapton
Cream
Bad Company
Rolling Stones
Beatles
ZZ top

Hard Rock/Pop/Metal

Van Halen
Journey-(Steve Perry era the non-hits, still the most incredible singer I've heard)
Motley Crue (I like them too.)
Pantera
Whitesnake (70's era stuff and the 80's stuff kicked ass, yes it did!!)
Rush
Yes
Metallica
Queen
Aerosmith
Bulletboys
Dokken
King's X
Queensryche

Soul/Motown/Jazz

Sam Cooke (the voice, THE VOICE!!)
Otis Redding
John Coltrane
Miles Davis
Buddy Rich-(No one will ever touch him on drums)
Wilson Pickett
Marvin Gaye
Jackie Wilson
Art Blakey
Vital Information

There's a million more I could think of and even more I didn't enter, and hey how 'bout
those Peacheaters?
