J.J. Cale- the man, the myth, the legend.  This dude is just so damn cool.  Critically acclaimed for his laid-back, rootsy style, Cale is most well known for his songs like Cocaine, After Midnight, and Call Me The Breeze, later made famous by Eric Clapton and Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Widespread Panic have made lesser known Cale songs, Ride Me High and Travelin’ Light, show staples in their own respect.  However, Cale’s influence on artists like Clapton, Panic, and Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) comes not only through his songwriting, but also through his loping sense of rhythm and down-home shuffle boogie.  Born and raised in Oklahoma, Cale is credited for creating his own unique genre of music known as the “Okie-blues.”  At age 71, the man is still kicking ass, making great records, and playing intimate shows for small crowds of lucky fans around the country.

Download this, grab a cold beer, kick back, and enjoy the show.
