I'm working on an article about what Jam Bands will play a Late Night Tent set at Bonnaroo 2011 and wanted to toss out a poll for the Inforoo folks so I can see who you guys most want. Please select two from the above and I'll mention the poll results in my article.

Galactic has been tied pretty closely to Bonnaroo, so I'd expect them to be there for number 10. If Karl Denson was one of the choices, I would have picked him. Instead, I selected DDBB. Always wanted to see them.
I went with Umphreys and STS9. I don't know if Galactic will play 2 late nights in a row, but its definitely possible. Its been awhile since STS9 was at Roo so I think they are due and I don't see them anywhere but a late night. I picked Umphreys out of preference.

Like half the bands you mentioned aren't big enough to do a late-night set on their own, unless it's Thursday night. Galactic, Umphrey's and STS9 are the only real options in that poll. Rather than including groups that aren't jambands (just because hippies like tDDBB doesn't make them a jam band, see, also, Medeski Martin & Wood), jambands that aren't that big (Tea Leaf Green, PGroove), and a band I've never heard of (who are The Waybacks?) you should have included moe., SCI, Bisco, Karl Denson, Yonder Mountain, etc.
not sure if STS9 will play this year since murph was diagnosed with cancer. they cancelled all of their february and march dates. but are still scheduled for waka and summercamp. so there's a chance but idk how likely.
i'd say since they supposedly couldn't land further they might get a dark star orchestra show in there. P Groove is definitely due back especially after Brock Butler's guest spot with moe. 2009.
umphrey's just gets better and better with every show. if they got a full latenight set they would set the place ablaze.
