TOUR DATES AND DOCUMENTARY PLANNED

In an interview with Gary Graff of Billboard, Widespread Panic's Dave Schools laid out the group's plans for 2011 in celebration of their 25th anniversary.

The band does not plan on releasing new material in the new year, but Schools says he is sure that they will tour in support of Dirty Side Down, which came out in the Spring of 2010. Billboard also reveals that a documentary about the band is in the works, with filming having already begun over Halloween weekend in New Orleans. The documentary is set to feature both current and archival footage.

Says Schools, “twenty-five years is kind of a milestone to keep a band together through all the things we've been through. We've never had a chance to sit back and go, 'God, there's a lot of gigs under the belt.' So it'll be a good time to go, 'OK guys, we've made it a lot farther than anyone could have imagined.'..and take a good, hard look at how we can take this further, how we can continue to evolve as a group of people, not only musically but spiritually and hopefully in a positive way."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
