Guests Perform with Gov’t Mule in Australia

Gov’t Mule got a little help from their friends during each of their Australia shows. Allman Brothers Band percussionist Marc Quinones joined the band for “Kind of Bird” during their Friday night set at the Byron Bay Bluesfest on April 19, while guitarist Robben Ford and Dave Matthews Band saxophonist Jeff Coffin sat in for “Sco-Mule” the following night at the same festival.

Additionally, Gov’t Mule played an extended set at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney last night. The band was forced to draw out their performance after Gregg Allman—who was previously scheduled to headline the show—backed out due to a wrist injury. The show saw Gregg’s son Devon Allman sit in with the group for “Southern Man” during the first encore. North Mississippi Allstars guitarist Luteher Dickinson then guested on “32/20 Blues” and “Gonna Send You Back to Georgia” during the second and final encore.

As previously reported, Gov’t Mule will fill in for Gregg Allman once again when they take the stage at The Forum in Melbourne tomorrow night.
