We’ve been very excited for the current run of Gov’t Mule dates in which Warren Haynes and his band brought Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers along as support. Considering that Haynes is a collaboration king, we figured he’d bring Bluhm and/or members of her band up to guest during Mule’s set. Through the first two shows of the run that didn’t happen, but last night at the House Of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ Warren came out during the Gramblers’ set to lend a hand on “Big Road” and “Jet Plane.”
So while we still await an appearance from Nicki during one of Mule’s set, we’re glad to see the two acts finally collaborated in some way. Gov’t Mule did welcome a guest last night and that was longtime collaborator and Warren Haynes Band member Ron Holloway. The tenor saxophonist sat in on “Birth Of The Mule” and “Get Behind The Mule” in the first set before returning for “Devil Likes It Slow” and “On Your Way Down” in set two. Holloway also lent a hand on the “I Believe To My Soul” encore.
Audio from Saturday night’s show has already surfaced, so here’s Warren Haynes sitting in with Nicki Bluhm And The Gramblers on “Big Road” and “Jet Plane” courtesy of taper edtyre.
