This year’s Wanee Music Festival will be headlined by Widespread Panic, who will play two shows. Also on the lineup are the customary side projects from Allman Brothers members including Gregg Allman, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band and Warren Haynes, who will play with both Gov’t Mule and his Ashes & Dust Band.
Les Brers will feature Butch Trucks, Jack Pearson, Jaimoe, Marc Quinones and Oteil Burbridge, all of whom are former Allman Brothers members. Bruce Katz, Pate Bergeron and Lamar Williams Jr. will also join. Williams is the son of late ABB bassist Lamar Williams and Katz has toured as both Jaimoe and Gregg Allman’s keyboardist. This is the first confirmed performance of the ensemble.
Also of note is the return of Billy and the Kids as well as two shows from Umphrey’s McGee. Steve Kimock will join Hot Tuna Electric and North Mississippi Allstars and Anders Osborne will revive their NMO project. Oteil Burbridge will also lead a special “Oteil and Friends” set.
Wanee is slated for April 14-16 in Live Oak, FL. Tickets are available here.
