Carrot Top, Dirty Dozen Brass Band Sit In with Widespread Panic in Las Vegas
Widespread Panic were joined by Carrot Top and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band last night during their show at the Hard Rock Las Vegas. The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who played the night’s opening slot, made their appearance for the last songs of the first set. Kevin Harris (Tenor Sax), Roger Lewis (Baritone Sax), Efrem Towns (Trumpet) and Gregory Davis (Trumpet) took the stage for “Weight of the World,” “Bust It Big,” a rendition of Bill Withers’ “Use Me” and “Tail Dragger.” Carrot Top (yes, that Carrot Top) then sat in on percussion for the last song of the encore, a take on The Talking Heads’ “Life During Wartime.” The comedian (aka Scott Thompson) is a big fan of Widespread Panic, and has sat in with the band on prior occasions, including a number of their Las Vegas shows.
Widespread Panic will return to the Hard Rock Las Vegas this evening for the second show of their two night run.
