John Bell and Patterson Hood Share Stage at Hannah’s Buddies Benefit

John Bell and Patterson Hood Share Stage at Hannah’s Buddies Benefit | January 24, 2011

The 12th Annual Hannah’s Buddies benefit, which raises money for spinal muscular atrophy research, took place over the weekend at the Grand Cypress Golf Club and The House of Blues in Orlando, FL. Saturday saw the event’s host John Bell introduce Hannah for whom the event is named, before performing a set that focused on material from the Widespread Panic catalog, such as “Let’s Get the Show On the Road,” “Mercy,” and “Dirty Side Down.” Towards the end of the set, Bell brought out Buck Williams, Widespread Panic’s longtime booking agent and co-manager, who added harmonica to Neil Young’s “From Hank to Hendrix.” Bell’s set concluded with the Drive-By Truckers’ Patterson Hood joining in for “Smokestack Lightning” and “End of the Show.” Bell also appeared with Hood’s group on a version of Alice Cooper’s “I’m Eighteen.”
