Panic En La Playa continued on Monday with Widespread Panic’s third of four full shows on the beaches of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The Georgia rockers brought out a number of their long-time friends and frequent collaborators to add to the fun on Monday night.

Panic nodded to the party atmosphere with a “Disco” opener. The first set rolled on with “Second Skin,” a cover of Tom Waits’ “Goin’ Out West,” “Give,” “Holden Oversoul” and “Climb To Safety.” The Dirty Dozen Brass Band then came out to assist on “Tail Dragger,” “Christmas Katie” and a take on Professor Longhair’s “Go To The Mardi Gras.” The latter hadn’t been performed by Widespread Panic since way back on October 28, 2000.

The group focused on originals in the second set with classics “Space Wrangler,” “Barstools and Dreamers” and “Chilly Water” among the tune performed over the course of nearly two hours. Bloodkin guitarist Eric Carter lent a hand on the jam that emerged out of “Chilly Water” and the nightly “Drumz” section. Carter returned for the “Quarter Tank Of Gasoline” / “Henry Parsons Died” segment that ended the closing stanza, which also featured Danny Hutchens of Bloodkin on guitar and vocals. For the encore, John Bell & Co. welcomed Carter back for a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Hutchens and Carter also lent a hand on the “End Of The Show” finale.
