Gregg Allman, Trey Anastasio, Derek Trucks & Gov’t Mule Perform ‘Soulshine’ At 2002 Jammys: Pro-Shot Video
Gov’t Mule was joined by Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio as well as Allman Brothers Band keyboardist Gregg Allman and guitarist Derek Trucks for a performance of “Soulshine” at the 2002 Jammys. Pro-shot video of the all-star “Soulshine” has been uploaded to Relix’s YouTube channel.
“Soulshine” came at the end of Gov’t Mule’s set as part of the third annual Jammy Awards ceremony/concert, which took place at Roseland Ballroom on October 2, 2002. Mule’s lineup at the time featured guitarist Warren Haynes, drummer Matt Abts, multi-instrumentalist Danny Louis and a rotating cast of bassists. Andy Hess held down the bottom end on “Soulshine” and would join the band the following year.
Haynes wrote “Soulshine” for inclusion on the ABB’s 1994 album Back Where It All Begins, though guitarist Larry McCray recorded his own version one year prior. “Soulshine” was a staple of The Allman Brothers Band repertoire through their breakup in 2014 and remains in heavy rotation with Gov’t Mule. The 2002 Jammys marked Anastasio’s only performance of the song.
