  1. I tried to see if this existed elsewhere but I didn't find anything.

    North Mississippi All Stars
    Particle
    Karl Denson
    Outformation (Sam Holt...tech from Widespread Panic)
    Trainwreck (Kyle Glass from Tenacious D)
    Moonshine Still

    Taylor Hicks played with us last year right before he won American Idol.

    Also played on the same stage 4 acts before Snoop Dogg. Crazy! Flyleaf and Yellowcard.....

    There might be a few more....hmmm....
