Widespread Panic Revisits Huntsville 1996
Volume 3 in Widespread Panic’s new archival release series is Huntsville 1996. This show took place at The Von Braun Center, Huntsville AL on 4/3/96, with the group’s classic line-up: John Bell, Mike Houser, Dave Schools, Todd Nance, Sunny Ortiz and JoJo Hermann. In describing this performance, the group’s archivist, Horace Moore observes, ‘Revered by fans young and old, this performance has more than stood the test of time. Among many first set standouts, the band mixes it up by exploring the very old and the brand new with a nod to Solace, a century-old Scott Joplin rag, and the debut of the elusive Sandbox. All that remained was for the synergy of the second set to overtake everyone band and audience and deliver a shot that, even after the encore, still hasnt found its way home. For those of you that have had this show stick with you since you first heard it and have always wished for it to be an official archive release.wishes do come true. And for those of you who havent yet had the opportunity of experience.welcome to our journey.’ Huntsville 1996 is now available for pre-order with a June 23 release date.
