With special guest
OCTOBER 20, 7:30PM
Big riffs, massive grooves, and expansive improvisations are the hallmarks of GOV'T MULE’s legendary live shows. Likewise, their well-crafted songs feature larger-than-life characters bearing life's heaviest burdens, performed by four musicians — guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes, drummer Matt Abts, keyboard player Danny Louis, and bassist Andy Hess — whose powerful musicianship and chemistry along with their tireless work ethic have earned them the respect of their peers. With their new ATO Records release High & Mighty produced by Haynes and Gordie Johnson, former leader of Canada's acclaimed Big Sugar, effectively bridges the gaps between rock and improvisational music. Laced with influences from blues, folk, reggae, soul and jazz, High & Mighty has appeal for everyone, yet stubbornly refuses to be categorized. Most of all, the album is big, both in scope and in sound. Built upon the rock solid foundation of 12 original songs and clocking in at well over an hour, the disc boasts an urgent, in-your-face sound reminiscent of the band's thunderous live concerts. In 2004, Gov't Mule celebrated its 1,000th live show. The past year has seen the band headline venues across the nation that include Colorado's famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre and multiple nights at New York's historic Beacon Theatre. In 2005 Warren Haynes was ranked No. 23 in Rolling Stone's list of all-time top guitarists, elevating him into the prestigious upper echelon of six-string heroes. And there is plenty more excitement to come. With the release of High & Mighty, Gov't Mule once again hits the road, thrilling its devoted fan base while introducing their roaring sound to even more aficionados of rock and improvisational music.
