Hire Gov’t Mule:
Gov’t Mule (pronounced “Government Mule”) is an American Southern rock jam band, formed in 1994 as a side project of the Allman Brothers Band by guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody. Fans often refer to Gov’t Mule simply as Mule.

The band released their debut album, Gov’t Mule, in 1995 and have since released an additional nine studio albums, as well as numerous EPs and live releases.

Gov’t Mule has become a staple act at music festivals across North America, with both its members and frequent guests from other notable bands adding various funk and blues rock elements to the band’s sound.

Haynes and Woody had been part of the Allman Brothers circle for several years by 1994, when the duo jammed with drummer Matt Abts at a Los Angeles club after a local Allman Brothers Band gig in May of that year.

The trio remained in contact and continued to play when their busy schedules allowed it, as its members began to take the new project more seriously with each successive jam session.

At first, Haynes and Woody attempted to keep Gov’t Mule going along with their Allman Brothers Band duties, resulting in albums such as 1995’s self-titled debut and 1996’s “Live At Roseland Ballroom.” By April 1997, Haynes and Woody had both handed in their resignations to the Allmans and were now free to focus on Gov’t Mule full-time.

In early 2000, just a few months after the release of “Life Before Insanity,” Woody was found dead in a New York City hotel room. Gov’t Mule was as much a brotherhood as it was a rock band. Haynes and Abts were left contemplating how to continue. They opted to carry on.

“When Woody passed away, we were kind of in the middle of preparing for what would be the next Gov’t Mule record anyway,” says Warren Haynes. “After Allen passed, we didn’t know how to continue that process. We didn’t want to start auditioning bass players to try to find a permanent replacement. So, the idea came about that all of our favorite bass players might be too busy to join the band or even do a whole tour, but maybe they wouldn’t be too busy to do one song.”

So, Gov’t Mule brainstormed a lengthy list of bassists whom they most respected and who had most influenced Woody musically and invited them all to collaborate with the band on its next album. They were unaware of what the response would be, considering the logistical challenges involved – and were overwhelmed when the vast majority of these musicians replied that they were eager to take part in the project.

Gov’t Mule wound up recording more than two full albums’ worth of material.
