With a reputation as one of the most powerful and talented jam bands on the touring circuit, Widespread Panic has no doubt accomplished what it set out to do when it formed in 1986 in Athens, Georgia. But the road constantly beckons these musical war birds to do what they do best--play live and create heady, instrumental jams. The band's shows, chock full of extended improvisational solos and giant Southern rock riffs, are stuff of folklore and are responsible for legions of fans following the band around the country.

Formed in 1994, the Louisiana sextet's penchant for stretching songs into extended instrumental musical endeavors has given the group a reputable following in the jam band community and its recent collaborations with hip hop artists like Chali 2na and Gift of Gab has extended Galactic's presence to surprising genres, earning the band fans from around the world.
