moe. and Mule Proved Their Combined ‘Weight’
Next week both moe. and Gov’t Mule will travel to Las Vegas to perform at the inaugural Vegoose. But, before then, the paired performers dipped their toes into Nevada for a joint performance at Caesar’s Tahoe Showroom. During the performance, Warren Haynes also joined moe. during ‘Opium,’ a number he has made his own over the past few months. Later in the set the Mule trio of Haynes, Matt Abts and Danny Louis also lent some muscle to a cover of The Band’s ‘The Weight.’
On Monday Mule and moe. also swapped covers. First, moe. invited Haynes onstage for a version of Neil Young’s ‘My My, Hey Hey(Into the Black).’ Next, Mule brought Chuck Garvey back for a cover of The Grateful Dead’s ‘Sugaree,’ which followed an inspired reggae version of Haynes’ signature ‘Soulshine.’ Tonight, moe. and Gov’t Mule’s outing continues onto Santa Cruz, CA’s The Catalyst.
