Calendar Pick: Gov’t Mule

Gov’t Mule has long been a staple of the Georgia Southern rock scene. Formed in 1995 by two members of The Allman Brothers Band, Warren Haynes and Allen Woody, the band would quickly build a following as a blistering, soulful rock band full of extended jams and Haynes’ virtuosic guitar work gleaned from his time with the Allman Brothers. The most recent album, Heavy Load Blues, is the band’s first official blues album. They’ve long flirted with the genre, at times embracing it entirely, but hesitated to create a full blues album until now. The album is roughly half blues originals and half classic blues tunes by the likes of Elmore James and Howlin’ Wolf. It’s likely that much of the band’s material will lean sharply in the blues direction during their show; however, Gov’t Mule is known for their electrifying covers, as well.
