Several members of Widespread Panic will perform at the We Miss You Mikey tribute to Panic guitarist Michael Houser.

As of press time, the evening’s lineup includes: John Bell, John Keane and Friends, Outformation, The HEAP and Romper Stompers as well as a show-closing tribute jam. This is one of the only shows Panic frontman John Bell will play this summer.

Outformation features Houser’s longtime guitar tech, Sam Holt, while Romper Stompers’ lineup includes Widespread Panic drummer Todd Nance, Bloodkin guitarist Danny Hutchens, Barbara Cue guitarist William Tonks and Barbara Cue bassist Jon Mills (Panic percussionist Sunny Ortiz regularly plays with the group as well). John Keane produced numerous Panic albums and toured with the band as an axillary musician. VIP tickets also include an early acoustic set by Dangfly.
