Widespread Panic is a formidable force in the rock and jam band music industry, earning the title of "One of America's Best Live Bands." The legendary American rock band was formed in Athens, Georgia, by John Bell and the late lead guitarist Michael Houser. John Bell (vocals), Dave Schools (bass), Duane Trucks (drums), Domingo Ortiz (percussion), and John "JoJo" Hermann (keyboards, piano, organ) make up the current lineup (keyboardist).
The history of the band's formation dates back to 1986. Widespread Panic's ambition for success has remained strong, even from the group's humble beginnings. A lot of people have been paying attention to the band ever since their first album, "Space Wrangler," came out. Their debut album sold so well that it was reproduced four times on vinyl records. The band's subsequent albums enjoyed the same level of commercial success. Their album "Ain't Life Grand" was monumental for the success of their singles "Airplane" and "Can't Get High." Their album "Bombs and Butterflies," which peaked at #50 on the Billboard 200 Chart, also helped propel them to fame. In addition, the album's lead track, "Hope in a Hopeless World," was also a smashing hit for the band.
The band's innovative songwriting and tireless dedication to live performances earned them the Road Warrior Award at the 5th Annual Billboard Touring Awards. The band has performed more than 1,600 shows. Unsurprisingly, Widespread Panic is among the 10 bands inducted by the "Athens Music Hall of Fame."
