    Can be a solo artist, or a band.

    For myself, I have seen Prince live a dozen times. Each time was an incredible show.

    Pearl Jam and REM for sure, but I don't know how many times for each -- at least seven.

    I saw Rush six times, and hopefully I’ll tie that the next time I see Jimmy Buffett.

    Butch Walker, something like 21 times.

    Seen him about every time he’s come to Cleveland the last 16 or so years. First time I saw him was in NYC at a free show in Bryant Park, opening for Five For Fighting. Haven’t heard from that guy in a decade. Seen Butch four other times in NYC as well.

    Have also seen him in Nashville, Cincinnati, and twice in Chicago. The man puts on a commanding performance.

    Rising up the list the last three years is Low Cut Connie. They’ve come through Cleveland something like seven times (since I learned of them) since 2017. Plus one trip to Pittsburgh for a free show at Pitt. It’s really one guy, Adam Wiener, who has had a bunch of different members. Tremendous performer.
