The news of a Widespread Panic concert in Orange Beach is firing up city officials and fans alike.

The Georgia-based jam band’s fans, known as Spreadheads, took to social media by the thousands Wednesday after an AL.com article reported city leaders’ displeasure with the May 22 booking of the band at The Amphitheater at The Wharf.

“We don’t promote that style of living and floppiness that’s happened, that they will bring,” declared Mayor Pro Tem Jeff Silvers, recalling the band’s last Orange Beach concert in 2010.
