Default Opening Acts Summer 2012

I know it's early but I always like to think of who would make great opening acts for DMB: Here are my choices

1) Zac Brown Band (saw them in DC and they were phenominal opening for DMB; bring them back)
2) Ben Harper (with Innocent Criminals or Relentless 7) Always a Big Ben fan and he does great when he comes out and performs with DMB (Watchtower with them in 2000 was insane)
3) Hoots and Hellmouth-if you don't know who these guys are go listen to them, they are pretty wild.
4) Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers-very underrated musician and the exposure would help him
5) Mumford and Sons-Great opener of DMB

I am always down for a JBT opener. Robert Randolph is great too. But they've both opened many times.... I'd like to see someone new for sure. I have no suggestions really, but this is what I have always liked about the openers, for the most part I have been turned on to some really great bands by catching the openers.
