Widespread Panic

Biography

One of the many neo-hippie jam bands inheriting the road-warrior mantle left behind by the Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic established a devout grassroots following on the strength of constant touring and a loose, rootsy brand of Southern rock informed by jazz and blues textures. The group's origins date to 1982, when vocalist John Bell and guitarist Mike Houser first began playing together while attending college in Athens, Georgia. When bassist Dave Schools left academia to join the duo the next year, Widespread Panic were officially born. The band recorded its debut single, “Coconut Image,” in 1986; drummer Todd Nance joined soon after, followed by the addition of percussionist Domingo “Sunny” Ortiz and finally keyboardist John “JoJo” Hermann.
