Members Of The Magpie Salute Guest With Gov’t Mule In Park City

Advertisement

On Friday night Gov’t Mule pulled into Park City, Utah for the penultimate night of their run of shows with The Magpie Salute as their support act. Outside of Dark Side Of The Mule performances, the two bands have collaborated at every gig during the encore on cover tunes with the trend continuing last night at the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater.

Mule delivered a two-set show in the Beehive State that got going with the much-beloved, fan-favorite “Soulshine.” The tune the originated from Warren Haynes’ days in the Allman Brothers Band helped kick off an impressive segue-fill run to start the night. Mule then reached for the old-school classic “Game Face” which saw them drop the Allman Brothers’ “Mountain Jam” in the middle of the track from 1998’s Dose. The four-piece act peppered the back half of their opening frame with a trio of cuts from most recent studio album Revolution Come…Revolution Go with “Pressure Under Fire,” “Dreams & Songs” and “Thorns Of Life.” Mule also reached back to their debut for “Painted Silver Light,” with “Forevermore” from 2009’s By A Thread and “Doing It To Death” from Sco-Mule helping round things before they brought the set to close with a cover of Al Green’s “I’m A Ram.”

Gov’t Mule continued to showcase material from the latest record opening their second set of the evening with “The Man I Want To Be.” The quartet worked in a tease of Jimi Hendrix’s “Power Of Soul” during “Birth Of The Mule.” Back-to-back songs from The Beatles psychedelic-era followed as they paired “She Said, She Said” with “Tomorrow Never Knows.” “Million Miles From Yesterday” and “Brighter Days” followed with the quartet jamming on the Grateful Dead’s “St. Stephen” after offering up “Trane.” “Bring On The Music” from 2013’s Shout! was tapped as the set-ender.

What has now become a tradition on this run, Gov’t Mule was joined by members of The Magpie Salute when they returned for their encore. Magpie Mule delivered a pair of songs last night in Utah. First up Marc Ford, Matt Slocum, Joe Magistro and John Hogg assisted on a take on the Derek & The Dominos classic “What Does Love Got To Be So Sad?”. Ford and Slocum remained on stage as Sven Pipien replaced Mule bassist Jorgen Carlsson. The meaty ensemble then dug in on the third Allman Brothers selection of the night looking to the iconic Southern-rock band’s 1969 debut for “Dreams” to bring things to an end.
