the bands you list appeal to different groups.  Dave Matthews/Blues
Traveler harken back to the old days of the Dead and the Allmans
(both curiously popular with young people) as opposed to Stone Garden
et al, yet I suspect all those bands cited are of about the same age,
and have a lot of fans of the same age.
