- January: WP heads back to Duck Tape Studio in Decatur, Alabama to begin work on their next album, with Johnny Sandlin producing. These sessions (with T Lavitz on keys) are not released.
- February 4: Space Wrangler is re-issued on Capricorn, with 3 bonus tracks: Contentment Blues and Holden Oversoul from the September 1990 Keane Studio sessions, and Me & The Devil Blues / Heaven, an outtake from the early 1991 Sandlin sessions for Mom's Kitchen with T Lavitz.
- February 7-8: T Lavitz plays his last shows with WP in Macon GA, citing the grueling tour schedule as his reason for leaving. These two shows also mark the debut of WP classics Better Off, Diner, Wondering, and Hatfield.
- February 21 & 27: Two shows in Auburn AL and Atlanta mark the final performances of WP without keyboards (though on 9.18.94 at a JB & Friends show in Monroe GA, Mike, JB, Dave, Todd, & Sunny perform together without a keyboard player). About this time, while meeting with Capricorn in Nashville, WP runs into old friend John Hermann ("Jojo") of the Oxford, Mississippi band Beanland. As Beanland is about to take a hiatus, WP recruits Jojo to take over as keyboard player in the band.
The February 27 show in Atlanta also marks the return of the WP instrumental L.a. to the live repertoire (as the show's opener!). Not played since their New Year's run at the Cotton Club in December 1990, L.a. had been dropped along with several other original tunes when T Lavitz joined the band in early 1991. This begins a stellar spring run of original tune resurrections and debuts.
- March 4: WP plays a show at the Georgia Theatre billed as "The Pintos (formerly The Cornbobbers)" opening for Tower of Power. As an audition of sorts, Jojo Hermann sits in with WP for this acoustic set.
March 13-14: These two shows at the Georgia Theatre to kick off the spring tour are Jojo's first shows as a member of Widespread Panic. Ironically, his first "official" show is 2 shows later at "Herman's Hideaway", on March 21 in Denver, CO.
The March 13 show features the debut of Dream Song, and the March 14 show features the return of originals Disco and Dog Song, which had been shelved when T Lavitz joined the band in early 1991, and Pleas, which hadn't been played in nearly 4 years (and never actually played by the full band until now).
- March 19 - May 31: Spring tour of the West, Canada, and the Southeast. First tour with Jojo, and more tune resurrections: Tie Your Shoes, which had been shelved in late 1989, and Postcard, which had disappeared along with L.a., Disco, and Dog Song by early 1991. Dog Song returned with a new arrangement to accomodate Jojo's keyboards, but was unfortunately dropped from the repertoire again by the end of the tour.
Spring tour wraps up with an appearance at Super Jam II in Athens on May 30.
- June 18 - August 9: Summer tour of the Southeast, Northeast, and Midwest.
July 9 - 12: WP joins friends Col. Bruce Hampton & the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Blues Traveler, Phish and The Spin Doctors on the first H.O.R.D.E. tour.
August 6-9: Second leg of the H.O.R.D.E. tour, with WP, Col. Bruce Hampton & the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Blues Traveler, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, and The Spin Doctors.
- August 27 - November 14: Fall tour of the west, Southeast, and Northeast U.S. During this tour, WP debuts an instrumental version of what later becomes Pilgrims.
September 1: Live At The Georgia Theatre video is released on the Capricorn label. The video features live versions of Send Your Mind, Pigeons, Walkin' (For Your Love), Makes Sense To Me, Rock, and a special version of Mercy performed by John Bell and Samantha Woods (of White Buffalo) as a duet.
October 5-6: Two shows at the Georgia Theatre are multi-track recorded by Johnny Sandlin for a potential live album on Capricorn, but these sessions are never officially released.
October 30-31: Two Halloween shows at the Georgia Theatre in Athens. The 'Halloween treat' debut is especially sweet, a cover of Funkadelic's instrumental Maggot Brain.
At this show, the WP original Coconut gets played for the first time in over 2 years, having been dropped due to incessant fan requests for the tune (which the band had been obliging, eventually getting tired of playing the song). Appropriately, it becomes Coconut 'candy', only handed out at Halloween for the next 5 or so years.
Additional treats include six cover tunes that hadn't been performed in at least 2 years: Black Sabbath and Sweet Leaf (both by Black Sabbath), Last Dance (by Neil Young), Lawyers, Guns & Money and Werewolves Of London (both by Warren Zevon).
- November 15: Widespread Panic heads to Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Sheffield, Alabama to begin recording their next album (Everyday), with Johnny Sandlin producing. They're in the studio for roughly 5 weeks.
- December 30-31: New Year's shows at the Georgia Theatre. WP plays Pilgrims with lyrics for the first time on the 30th.
