Jimmy Herring Announces New Band The 5 of 7 + 2019 Tour Dates

Jimmy Herring The 5 of 7 Band Announced

Widespread Panic guitar player Jimmy Herring has announced his newest side project called The 5 of 7, a band consisting of Herring on guitar, bassist Kevin Scott, drummer Darren Stanley, keyboardist Matt Slocum, and vocalist and guitarist Rick Lollar.

Herring said in the press release that the idea came from seeing the other guys jam. He explains, “Rick, Matt, and Kevin had a band together called King Baby, and I heard their record…I couldn’t help but think, man, if I could get together, play some of Rick’s songs, some of my songs, some covers, and maybe write a few things together, we may be on to something…”

Herring also talks about what his audiences can expect for this new group… “There’ll be vocals, there’ll be instrumentals. There will be funk and rock and roll, with some songs leaning towards more sophisticated harmony…but, to me, it’s just music.”

The 5 of 7 will be hitting the road with an impressive 17-date tour which you can see the dates for below.
