Sam Holt Band are playing two special shows in celebration of the late Michael Houser's January, 6th birthday.
Houser was the founding guitarist for Widespread Panic. He succumbed to pancreatic cancer in August, 2002.
Sam Holt was Houser's guitar tech and friend. Holt also performed with Widespread Panic many times after
Michael's departure and went on to form the band Outformation.
The show will feature many tunes from Houser's posthumous album Sandbox, as well as classic songs he
wrote for Widespread Panic. Sam Holt Band will also perform original material that was inspired by and written
for the late Michael Houser.
The shows are billed as, "Sam Holt Band Presents : A Michael Houser Birthday Celebration - Honoring the
Music, Memory, and Spirit of Michael Houser".
Sharing the stage with Holt is Adam Grace, keyboardist for Truth & Salvage Co., Ross Parker on bass, and
Jeremy Ward on drums.
