Fresh off shows with Widespread Panic, Lockin Festival, and many more get ready. Creative Loafing sums it up best :There isn’t nearly enough space here to recap the extensive, colorful, and confusing history of Atlanta’s granddaddy of all things jam, Col. Bruce Hampton, who now adds “Ret.” to his moniker. But from his 1969 emergence as the leader of the ahead-of-its-time Hampton Grease Band through stints with a wildly diverse set of curiously named outfits, including the Late Bronze Age, the Codetalkers, the Fiji Mariners, the Quark Alliance, and, most notoriously, the Aquarium Rescue Unit, his idiosyncratic influence has been felt by every major roots/jam musician who has emerged from the Peach State.
Hampton’s ties to headliners such as Widespread Panic and Derek Trucks are well documented, but names such as Warren Haynes, Billy Bob Thornton, Chuck Leavell, Jimmy Herring, Phish’s Mike Gordon, and Frank Zappa also play key roles in Hampton’s more than 40-year professional career. Last year’s documentary Basically Frightened details the story for those who want to dig deeper.
Special Guests The Red Stone Ramblers open the show.
