Formally floppy: Widespread Panic fans put their best foot forward at Flopper’s Ball | AL.com

Thousands of fans of the jam band Widespread Panic turned out Friday night in Orange Beach for the band’s performance at the Amphitheater at The Wharf, a show some Orange Beach city officials said earlier they wish had never been booked.

Many of those fans came determined to put their best foot forward in response to comments about mayhem and “floppiness” from Orange Beach Mayor Tony Kennon and Mayor Pro Tem Jeff Silvers, referencing previous Panic shows in Orange Beach. Hundreds came dressed in some variation of their Mardi Gras ball attire, and attendees donated thousands of cans of food to the Bay Area Food Bank.
