Several collaborations transpired during Gov’t Mule’s show at Atlantic City, NJ’s House of Blues last night. Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers opened the night and, at the end of the San Francisco band’s set, Warren Haynes emerged for a cover of Willie Dixon’s “Big Roads” and the Bluhm original “Jetplane.”
Later in the evening, Warren Haynes Band saxophonist Ron Holloway sat in with Gov’t Mule. Holloway took the stage for “Birth Of The Mule” and “Get Behind The Mule” at the end of the quartet’s first set. He returned for “Devil Likes It Slow” and Allen Toussaint’s “On Your Way Down” during Gov’t Mule’s second set as well as Ray Charles’ “I Believe To My Soul” during their ncore.
Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers will open for Gov’t Mule at Danbury, CT’s Ives Music Park this evening. For more on Haynes, be sure to read our recent site interview. The Gramblers also recently appeared on CBS This Morning.
