From all reports, the locomotive, 28-year-old Southern jam band is back at the top of its game, having sold out fabled Colorado venue Red Rocks for the 45th time this past summer. In an elite club that includes Phish and the Grateful Dead, the Athens, Ga.-spawned sextet plays long, loud and hard, often taking jazzlike excursions that involve traded solos between guitar, bass and keyboards. Though founding member Michael Houser died in 2002, lead guitarist Jimmy Herring, who joined in 2006, has brought the group into a second life.

Set lists are different every night and drawn from the band’s whole career, but if you’re lucky you might hear “Shut Up and Drive” or “Pigeons.”

7 p.m. Sunday, March 15, at the Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St., Seattle; $41.25 (877-784-4849 or
