California Voodoo - A Tribute to Widespread Panic

California Voodoo - A Tribute to Widespread Panic

The music of Widespread Panic is undeniably powerful and magnetic. It's brings together an impossible recipe of unlikely ingredients to form a bubbling stew of highly-spiced energy. Dark, mysterious, heavy, and yet incredibly soft and tender, this music draws in people of backgrounds as varied as the influences that shaped Panic into one of the most recognizable names in modern music. It was this raw, uncut attraction to the spirit of Panic's music that brought together the members of California Voodoo, Kansas City's premier Widespread Panic Tribute band. The band is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Scott McCormick, whose uncanny grit and bluesy wails perfectly capture an early nineties J.B., lead guitarist Brian Brooks with all the technical prowess and harmonic sensitivity that bridges the difficult gap between Mikey Houser and Jimmy Herring, bassist Brad McTighe holding down the charging low end and frenetic upper-register melodies of Dave Schools, Drummer Matt Miner providing the rock solid tempo and familiar drum fills, Nathan Herrington adding the percussion attack of Sunny and eerily spot-on vocals of JoJo Herman, and the creole-funk inspired keyboard improvisations of Damon "D-Bone" Parker. Just like your favorite Bar-B-Que, California Voodoo brings it hot and spicy with fall-off-the-bone delicious recreations of the shows that we all love so much. The band's goal is, and always will be, to replicate the spirit of Widespread Panic through their unique music. California Voodoo tries to play these tunes as honestly as possible, plus adding their own take on the timeless themes of celebration, suffering, love, and loss that permeate Panic's sound.
