Gov’t Mule’s string of southern dates culminated in a pair of New Orleans shows at the Saenger last week. When Mule visits the hotbed of live music known as New Orleans, you know you are in for a treat—especially during Jazz Fest.
Throughout the show, Warren welcomed plenty of guests to the stage to jam on different covers including Levee Horns, Steve Ferrone, Smokey Greenwell, Eric Krasno, Neil Evans, Ron Blair and Alvin Youngblood Hart. Their were plenty of fireworks even when there were no guests on stage. In the final songs of the second set and the encore, Mule managed to pump out smokin’ covers of Led Zeppelin’s “No Quarter,” Neil Young’s “Rocking in the Free World,” Jimi Hendrix’s “Machine Gun” and The Door’s “When the Music’s Over.” The encore run of “Rockin’ in the Free World > Machine Gun > When the Music’s Over > Machine Gun > Rockin’ in the Free World” was especially mind blowing.
