Instead of an option to include band, composer and conductor in the
artist searches, it would be nice if there would be a text field to
enter tag names to be included in the artist search. Such as
"performer" or others.

I would like to use this feature because my artist tags contain a
single value for an entire album (using "Various Artists" for
compilations). I use the performer field to identify the actual
individual performer(s) of each music piece. I'd like to be able to
search on this field (and maybe others too).

Anybody else see any usefulness in this?

Yes, I definitely can see the utility in this. Perhaps you could file an
enhancement request at http://bugs.slimdevices.com ?
