WSP: TUNES FOR TOTS

Widespread Panic wants to thank you for making last year’s Tunes for Tots charity concert such a huge success! Together, we raised over $100,000 that directly purchased musical equipment for The Union Grove High School Guitar Club, The Lovejoy marching band and a music classroom at Barnett Shoals Elementary School.

As you may know, good instruments are very expensive and many more schools are under-funded and in need, so Widespread Panic has decided to do it all again! The 2nd Annual Tunes For Tots charity concert will be December 29th at the Roxy Theatre in Atlanta GA. Tickets go on sale December 2nd. Check out the Tour dates page for ticket prices and show details.

Widespread Panic believes that art education, and in particular music education, is integral to the overall education and advancement of children. Art allows for personal expression, appreciation of ideas, celebration of cultural awareness, sharing emotions, and gives purpose to life. Widespread Panic agrees with research findings that art education supports more traditional academic subjects as well as being a worthy pursuit in its own right.

All proceeds directly purchase musical equipment for school kids in Georgia.

WHOA! hey now, first off it's the Fabolous Fox Theatre. It is one of the greatest venues this country is lucky to still have. They almost tore it down several years ago, thank God they didn't, to probably build a parking lot. The Fabolous Fox has never let me down. I've been pretty tore down in that place and the staff never hassled me, always kindly showed me the way to the nearest bathroom or exit. I'm sure whatever bad experience you had with the staff, was just them doing their job. The Fox is an historic place we should be glad to be still be able enjoy it's awesome acoustics and ambience.
