Gov’t Mule, a Southern rock jam band, formed in 1994 as a side project of The Allman Brothers Band by guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody. In the same way that The Grateful Dead were often referred to colloquially as “The Dead”, Gov’t Mule are often referred to as The Mule.
The band released their debut album Gov’t Mule in 1995, and have since released an additional nine studio albums, plus numerous EPs and live releases. Gov’t Mule has become a staple act at music festivals across North America, with both its members and frequent guests boasting members from other notable bands, adding various funk and blues rock elements to the band’s sound.
Big riffs, massive grooves, and expansive improvisations are the hallmarks of Gov’t Mule’s legendary live shows. Likewise, their well-crafted songs feature larger-than-life characters bearing life’s heaviest burdens, performed by four musicians – guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes, drummer Matt Abts, keyboard player Danny Louis, and bassist Andy Hess – whose powerful musicianship and chemistry along with their tireless work ethic have earned them the respect of their peers.
“Everyone in the band has such a wide variety of musical points of reference that a song can start in any style – from rock to blues to funk to R&B to reggae – and end up going to a completely different place.” – Warren Hayes
