Southern improvisational masters and legendary jam band Widespread Panic return to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre for a three-night concert run beginning Friday, September 14 and playing through Sunday, September 16, 2018!
Widespread Panic has been together more than 30 years. Formed by original members vocalist/guitarist John “JB” Bell, bassist Dave Schools and late guitarist Michael Houser, who lived together in a suburban house in Athens, GA, where they met as students not far from the University of Georgia campus, later to be joined by drummer Todd Nance. The band’s line-up was solidified with the addition of percussionist Domingo “Sunny” Ortiz and keyboard player John “JoJo” Hermann and Duane Trucks on drums.
Over three decades have passed since forming their original lineup in 1986, Widespread Panic is still hungry to be the best band they can be, every single night, for their loyal fan base. Their accomplishments over that time are well-documented. During their impressive run, the band released 12 studio albums (including Street Dogs) and 43 live albums, selling more than 3 million copies as one of the most successful touring acts in the world. Widespread Panic has broken attendance records at major venues throughout the country, including a staggering 48 sold-out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.
All three concert dates are participating in a food drive and will accept non-perishable food items throughout the run. Widespread Panic concert food drives first began with the fan-based organization Panic Fans for Food. This fan organization hosted food drives at WP shows throughout the country from 1999-2007, with the goal of, “feeding people through music.” The effort generated $70,000 and 13 tons of food in 28 cities and was handed off to the band in early 2008. Since then, the band has been hosting food drives at select shows on their tours, engaging a demographic that is typically more difficult for charities and food drives to reach. To date, the band’s “Feeding People Through Music” endeavor has raised over $129,786 and 22,425+ pounds of food for communities across the country.
