Lee Bains

Add another "Best of 2014" list for Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires. Rolling Stone veteran critic David Fricke named Dereconstructed to his Year in Rock: Shows, Albums and Memories From 2014. Fricke says "these rebel yellers from Georgia and Alabama are the product of a South still under economic and spiritual Reconstruction and long marinated in AC/DC...I didn't get to see this band live in 2014; I won't make that mistake in '15." The Glory Fires have a busy spring planned. Stay tuned here for all that information.


Great news! Both Widespread Panic and Natural Child will be performing at Wanee Festival next April in Live Oak, Florida. What's better, the improvisational rock 'n roll veterans will play two nights, Friday and Saturday. It will be Natural Child's first adventure into the Spirt of Suwanee Music Park. We're excited to hear what comes of it. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am EST. All info is available here. Check all of Widespread Panic's upcoming dates here!
