Gov’t Mule is a Grammy-nominated band known for its high-energy shows and extensive southern rock jams. The band began as a project by renowned guitarist Warren Hayes and bassist Allen Woody who has amazing work with Allman Brothers Band. Gov’t Mule emerged in 1994 and dropped their self-titled debut album one year later. Many of Gov’t Mule’s releases include incredible live albums. In 2003, they released the Deepest End, Live in Concert, their first effort to be certified gold. By 2006, the band’s seventh studio release, High & Mighty, have entered Billboard’s Independent Album chart, peaking at number 3. The follow-up record, Mighty High, also performed impressively, placing at a cool number 9.
In 2008, Gov’t Mule performed a special Halloween show in Boston featuring all Pink Floyd songs. They recorded their performance and released it six years later as a live album titled Dark Side of the Mule. This 2023 will be the first time for Gov’t Mule to embark on a full Pink Floyd tribute tour. Hayes recalled that they never expected the one-time event to turn into a full tour. “This all started so organically with what we thought would be a one-time Halloween performance. Since then, Dark Side of the Mule has grown into something else. It’s a blast to perform this material, but our intent is to do it for one final tour in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Dark Side. Don’t miss it!”
