I am not a jamband/roots-rock fan, so I never heard of this guy. Last night, I went to a concert for the 50th anniversary of the Fender Jazzmaster, and all of the performers were players that normally play a JM (Tom Verlaine, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, Nels Cline, J Masics). Mascics was the last performer and the only one with a backing band. Despite J's awesome guitar work, I couldn't stop watching the bass player. Amazing tone (especially working against J's wall of amps) and great lines. J introduced the band before the last song, and I made sure to remember his name. Googled him this morning and I find out he is the bass player for Widespread Panic. Perhaps I should listen to their albums.
