David Grissom Sits in with Gov’t Mule
Guitarist David Grissom took the stage with Gov’t Mule last night at La Zona Rosa in Austin, TX. Grissom joined the band midway through the set for ’32-20 Blues,’ which segued into ‘Sco-Mule.’
David was a member of Austin-based Storyville, which included drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon, the rhythm section from the Arc Angels and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble. Storyville played throughout the mid-nineties and disbanded in 1999. Grissom has also performed with a range of musicians including Ringo Starr, John Cougar Mellencamp, Buddy Guy, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and John Mayall.
Gov’t Mule is currently touring with two bass players, George Porter Jr. and Greg Rzab, who perform portions of each show. The band plays late shows tonight and tomorrow at the Orpheum Theatre in New Orleans. Widespread Panic bassist David Schools, who will be performing with his band at Lakefront Arena earlier in the evening, will jam with Mule on both nights.
