Widespread Panic is also a devout community service advocate, and likewise are their fans. Panic Fans for Food hold food drives at Widespread Panic shows to benefit local food banks and have already collected over $70,000 of food. At The Amphitheater at The Wharf, local food representatives will be on hand accepting donations.
With a fan base ranging from faithful followers that purchased their first release “Coconut” as a 45 rpm single to their most recent followers that download music off the Internet, Panic has survived 22 years by selling over 3 million albums and consistently placing as one of Pollstar’s Top 50 grossing live acts. In 2008, Widespread Panic was inducted in the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. The band released their 10th studio album, Free Somehow, in February 2008 via Widespread Records and has a catalogue of 19 albums to date. Their incomparable live show has earned record attendances across the country.
