Galactic and Widespread Panic Makes for Great Music in Raleigh

Posted 07 Jun 2014 in News, Performance

It was a good few days to be in Raleigh.  Especially if you were inside the Red Hat Amphitheater to see Galactic and Widespread Panic.  The two bands had a 2 night stand and as you would expect there was plenty of funk as well as plenty of excellent rock.

Widespread Panic

Widespread Panic and Galactic had a great 2 night run in Raleigh.

Aside from both bands putting on great shows there was also a good amount of collaboration between the two bands.  During the first of the two shows Galactic’s drummer Stanton Moore sat in with Panic.  On the second night of the run it was time for Galactic to lend some keys and horns to Widespread Panic’s second set.  Rich Vogel on keyboards, Ben Ellman on sax and Corey Henry on trombone took the stage during the 2nd set.  The Galactic members stuck around to play the end of Ain’t No Use by The Meters and Red Hot Mama by Funkadelic.


You can have a look at a vid from youtube member youngfunchewy of Red Hot Mama below.  The quality isn’t so great but you can still check it out.

The full setlist from the show was:

Set One: Weak Brain, Narrow Mind, Send Your Mind, Walkin’ (For Your Love), Little Lilly, Flicker > Makes Sense To Me, Blackout Blues, Thought Sausage > Barstools and Dreamers (62 mins)
