“Well before the start of the Gunboat show, I noticed that the Gunboat crowd is such a fun crowd. They all seem to know each other, and all seem to be friends. It felt more like a family reunion than a show—a feeling that I have only gotten with certain bands, Widespread Panic being one of them. When the band came onstage, Will Freeman did a call-and-response to the crowd, very reminiscent of Colonel Bruce’s “Cheese Frog Zambie” salute. The band’s original “Happy Hour” started off the set—a blistering Beanland-like, boogie-woogie ballad written and sung by Jonbob Wise, with a really gritty, bluesy edge. Jonbob’s gravelly voice is perfect for it, and his piano solos are even better.”
