JB and Hannahs Buddies
On Saturday John Bell hosted his eighth annual Hannahs Buddies Charity Classic at Lake Buena Vista, FLs House of Blues . As is tradition, Bell used the benefit to dust off some rare numbers from Widespread Panics catalogue, including New Blue which has been out of rotation since November 20, 2001. With longtime Widespread Panic guitar technician/Outformation guitarist Sam Holt by his side, Bell also performed a version of Outformations Tennessee Before Daylight. Later longtime Widespread Panic manager Buck Williams got some stage time, playing harmonica with Bell and his friends near the end of the benefit. Bells setlist also included such songs as Let’s Get The Show On The Road, Genesis, Tell the Truth into Submission, and Geraldine and the Honeybee. In addition to performing with Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jimmy Herring also appeared during Outformations set for a version of Titles Of Movies Will Not Appear On Bill.
