Gov’t Mule, side project of The Allman Brother’s guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody, stopped by Atlanta’s The Tabernacle to perform to a passionate, eclectic crowd. Simply known as Mule to their fans, the southern rockers are one of the more well-known jam bands of the past two decades and a staple at music festivals across North America.
With nine studio albums, numerous EPs and a number of live recordings, Gov’t isn’t short on material to choose from. Their 19 song set in Atlanta broke into two different segments that featured a few originals, in addition to multiple covers. Gov’t Mule performed ZZ Top’s “Just Got Paid,” The Allman Brothers’ “Soulshine” and Elton John’s “Have Mercy on the Criminal,” plus many others.
If Atlanta learned anything, it’s that a night with Gov’t Mule is bound to be a good time.
