Tush (May 4, 2012) Captured by rajrae6
Captured at the House Of Blues in New Orleans during Jazz Fest 2012, this live take on ZZ Top’s “Tush” saw Haynes joining Grace Potter & the Nocturnals for the encore. Haynes laid down some tasty slide work in the extended intro alongside Potter’s high-energy stage presence.
Whipping Post (September 8, 2012) Captured by LazyLightning55a
This star-studded live version of The Allman Brothers Band classic “Whipping Post” from The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York features Hayes, Potter, Trey Anastasio, Bob Weir, The Roots and legendary late saxophonist Bobby Keys. The highlight of the video? Potter rocking out with her guitar alongside The Roots’ tuba player, Damon “Tuba Gooding Jr.” Bryson.
Gold Dust Woman (June 4, 2010) Posted by Mountain Jam Festival
During their set at Mountain Jam VI in 2010 at Hunter Mountain in Hunter, New York, Haynes and Gov’t Mule welcomed Potter for a live rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman.” Potter channeled Stevie Nicks as she handled lead vocals on the cover. Haynes later recorded a version of the song with Potter on his 2015 album, Ashes & Dust.
Gimme Shelter (November 17, 2012) Posted by Rick Randall
Grace Potter & The Nocturnals performed at New York City’s historic The Beacon Theatre in the fall of 2012. That night she and the band teamed with Haynes for a cover of The Rolling Stones’ ‘60s anthem “Gimme Shelter,” a song that requires some pipes, which Potter has plenty of.
Dear Prudence (September 5, 2013) Captured by kitchy
Gov’t Mule took the stage at Lockn’ in 2013, where they brought out Potter for a rendition of The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence.” For this festival collaboration, Haynes and Potter traded verses on the classic White Album cut (video starts at around 3:20).
