With the 2017 Island Exodus 6 months behind us, it was an awesome surprise to stumble upon a fresh recording of this Island Exodus show from 2011 today. Eric Krasno and his band at the time, Chapter 2, played one of the evenings at Gov’t Mule’s Island Exodus back in 2011. The second inaugural Island Exodus featured Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes solo, Eric Krasno and Chapter 2, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and Ron Holloway. All acts can be heard on this smokin Eric Krasno and Chapter 2 set.
Eric Krasno and Chapter 2 includes Louis Cato on bass and Adam Deitch on drums. After the opening “King of the Burbs,” the rest of the set featured special guests on every song.
The absolute highlight of the set is Warren Haynes and Danny Louis sitting in on a full-octane cover of B.B. King’s “The Thrill is Gone.” The Gov’t Mule members stay continue to the jam on “Red Baron > Lively Up Yourself > Red Baron.” Add in some sit-ins from the horn gods Ron Holloway and Trombone Shorty and you have one hell of a set.
