Gov’t Mule has no shortage of fans in the Azalea City. Over the years, this group led by guitar maestro Warren Haynes has brought its blues-infused Southern jam rock to Mobile on a regular basis.
This visit from Haynes and his crew will feature crowd favorites as well as cuts from their upcoming album “Revolution Come … Revolution Go.” Gov’t Mule has previewed the new release with two singles. “Sarah Surrender” is set on a foundation of blue-eyed soul with Haynes adding a batch of smooth, complementary guitar licks. Raunchy, wailing slide dominates the progressive blues masterpiece “Stone Cold Rage.”
The Eric Krasno Band will open for Gov’t Mule. With a background that includes playing guitar in the bands Soulive and Lettuce, Krasno’s solo work is a departure from his established bands.
Krasno’s latest album, “Blood from a Stone,” includes nods to classic rock, blues, soul and funk. Combined with impressive production, it should appeal to a variety of musical tastes.
