Widespread Panic

Widespread Panic has been together 30 years. Formed by original members vocalist/guitarist John "JB" Bell, bassist Dave Schools and late guitarist Michael Houser, who lived together in a suburban house in Athens, GA, where they met as students not far from the University of Georgia campus, later to be joined by drummer Todd Nance, percussionist Domingo "Sunny" Ortiz and keyboard player John "JoJo" Hermann.
.The band's current line-up was solidified with the addition of Jimmy Herring on guitar (2006) and Duane Trucks on drums (2016).
Over three decades have past since forming their original line-up in 1986, Widespread Panic is still hungry to be the best band they can be, every single night, for their loyal fan base. Their accomplishments over that time are well-documented. During their impressive run, the band has released 12 studio albums (including Street Dogs) and 43 live albums, selling more than 3 million copies as one of the most successful touring acts in the world. Widespread Panic has broken attendance records at major venues throughout the country, including a staggering 61 sold-out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado.
