Widespread Panic’s Jimmy Herring Reveals New Tour Dates with the Invisible Whip

After dedicating the last decade of his life to touring with Widespread Panic and co-founding the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Project Z, and Jazz is Dead, guitarist Jimmy Herring decided it was time to head back on the road–this time, with his own band, the Invisible Whip, touring his own music.

The Invisible Whip bring fans a freshly crafted and widespread tour schedule composed of 48 stops, beginning on July 19 in Memphis, TN. Split into two legs, the latter adds John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension to the mix, starting at University of Buffalo Center of the Arts on Nov. 1 and passing through celebrated NY state venues such as Albany’s the Egg, the Town Hall NYC and Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre.

The tour will boast material currently in the works as well as from Herring’s 2008 release, Lifeboat and 2012’s Subject to Change Without Notice. The recently announced tour dates mark the first performances of Herring’s own music, with his own band, in nearly five years.

The contemporary and improvisational American guitarist, who has toured with the likes of the Dead, Phil Lesh and Friends, the Allman Brothers Band, adds the Invisible Whip to an already stacked musical vault. Made up of companions, drummer Jeff Sipe (aka Apt Q258), Matt Slocum on B3 organ and clavinet, multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby on Fender Rhodes, piano and violin, and bassist Kevin Scott, the Invisible Whip is titled after the intangible musical connection that bonds them, a reference to time spent playing with legendary Col. Bruce Hampton.
