The Rockin’ Chair: My Southern Town
by Tom Speed

. . . Beanland was right in the thick of the southern jam scene in the late 1980s. Like The Tangents, they harnessed the sound of Mississippi, from Memphis to New Orleans, but added a healthy dose of the exploratory influence of the Grateful Dead to the mix. In the late 80s and early 90s, Beanland was not only Oxford’s band, they were Mississippi’s band. Their self-titled debut, produced by Jim Dickinson, won them legions of fans as their touring radius sprouted beyond the Southeast to Colorado and even to (gasp!) New York City! But in 1992, keyboardist Jojo Hermann left Beanland to join Widespread Panic, and Beanland sputtered out a little more than a year later, releasing one more album (the also brilliant Eye To Eye), with a different lineup just before their demise. A decade after that, guitarist George McConnell joined Panic following the loss of Michael Houser. [For a great look at Beanland and Oxford in the 1980s, I advise that you check out the documentary Rising From The Riverbed, by Oxford filmmaker Scotty Glahn] . . .
