Jerry Joseph Joins Panic in Myrtle Beach
Last night, Widespread Panic closed a three-night run at North Myrtle Beach, SCs House of Blues. Longtime Panic collaborator Jerry Joseph was also on hand and joined the group near the end of its performance for a version of his own Light Is Like Water, a number Widespread has not performed since July 5, 2005. Earlier in the night, Widespread Panic also busted out the first Big Chief Jam since July 23, 1999 between Rebirtha and Ribs And Whiskey.
Widespread Panic will close its summer tour this weekend in Charlotte, NC. These shows will include a food drive which will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Fans are encouraged to bring non perishable goods to the shows. Most needed items are Peanut Butter, tuna, canned meat or other protein rich meals in a can like chili or beef stew. The food bank will have a table set up next to will each day of the show from 3:30 PM until doors and will also set up inside the venue in the concessions area before showtime and during set break. Summertime creates an increased need for food banks around the country because children no longer have access to free or reduced school meals, often times the only meal they receive all day, John Bell said in a statement. In these times of spiraling gas and food prices, your contribution can make a world of difference for families on North Carolina.’
