For the love of southern rock

Gov't Mule - an off-shoot of The Allman - are recognised as one the leaders of Southern Jam Rock, with every show offering up a totally unique improvised experience. They were formed in 1994 by Allman Brothers members Warren Hayes and Allen Woody. Their eponymous debut album arrived in 1995, and maybe their crowning achievement came four years later with the release of Live...With a Little help from My Friends. A sprawling, multi-disc recording of their 1998 New Year's concert in Atlanta, it showcased the band's incredible talent for epic jams. One example is their cover of Santamaria's Afro-Blue which stretches to nearly 17 minutes!

The band's latest release was this year's archival release The Tel-Star Sessions, a collection of demos made in 1994. Catch Gov't Mule when they hit Rumsey Playfield SummerStage Central Park in New York , NY , showing for one date only on 17 May 2017! .
