Gov’t Mule co-founders Warren Haynes and Matt Abts played a special acoustic set at New York’s J & R Music World on Tuesday night. The brief performance was tied to the release of the new Mule archival set, The Georgia Bootleg Box Set. The box set documents a classic Gov’t Mule run from 1996. While at J & R, the Mule duo ran through acoustic versions of “So Weak, So Strong,” “Old Friend” and “Raven Black Night.”
The members of Gov’t Mule collaborated with friends on Monday night as well. The performance took place at Richmond, VA’s The National. Near the end of their first set, Gov’t Mule brought out area hero—and Warren Haynes Band saxophonist—Ron Holloway for “Devil Likes It Slow” and “32/20 Blues.” Later in the night, Holloway returned during Mule’s second set for “Sco-Mule” as well as the encore of “That’s What Love Will Make You Do” and “Spanish Moon.” The latter two songs also featured pedal steel guitarist Roosevelt Collier, who opened the show as a member of The Lee Boys.
Gov’t Mule will perform at West Hampton, NY’s Westhampton PAC this evening. For a look at Haynes and Abts’ J & R set, be sure to visit Relix.com.
