Warren Haynes was joined by Hook Herrera, Danny Louis, Ron Holloway and Matt Abts during his solo set at Gov’t Mule’s Island Exodus in Negril, Jamaica on Friday. The guitarist knocked out covers of Gillian Welch’s “Time (The Revelator)” and George Harrison’s “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)” before being joined by Abts for The Allman Brothers’ “Old Friend” and “Raven Black Night.” Herrera jumped in a few songs later for renditions of Charlie Rich’s “Feel Like Going Home” and Jimmy Cox’s “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” before Louis took the stage to join them on Van Morrison’s “Ain’t Nothing You Can Do.” Louis then stuck around with Haynes for takes on Radiohead’s “Lucky” and the Grateful Dead’s “Loser.” Next, Holloway sat in with Haynes and Louis for a version of “Endless Parade” that included lyrics from Van Morrison’s “The Way Young Lovers Do.” The group then played Morrison’s “Into the Mystic,” followed by a set closing “Soulshine.” The show ended with Herrera, Louis and Holloway all joining in on “That’s Why We’re Here,” which segued into a cover of The Impressions’ “People Get Ready” for the encore.

Anders Osborne opened for Haynes on Friday, and the New Orleans guitarist played a number of sets throughout the weekend. Friday night’s full Warren Haynes setlist can be viewed below.

This is how its done Phil and Phish fans.

Yes, solid setlist, can’t argue with that. But to say, “that’s how it’s done”... so Phil and Phish should just play sets that consist of mostly covers, then you would be happy? I don’t think more covers means better, in fact I think more originals are better, but to each their own.

Who cares?? It’s Warren Haynes, that’s all that needs to be said. This set looks amazing, and I’d give anything to join the Mule in Jamacia one January!

Warren should give it up
