Gov’t Mule and Friends capped off an epic Christmas Jam 2016 with an awesome Allman Brothers tribute. Christmas Jam, hosted annual by Warren Haynes, is a fundraiser for Habitat Humanity. It also promises to be one of the best concerts of the year, full of surprise sit-ins and once in a lifetime collaborations, such as George Porter Jr., Bob Weir, Eric Krasno and more performing Sugaree.
To give you an idea of the magnitutde of the event, here is the stage timing for the entire evening, It’s a lot of music.
Mule ended their set with an Allman Brothers Band tribute. “Dreams > Mountain Jam > Drums > Mountain Jam” clocked in at 25 minutes and put the final end time of Christmas Jam 2016 at 2:57 AM. To give the tunes that true Allman Brothers sound, Mule has a little help from some friends including Paul Riddle on drums, Duane Trucks on drums, Count M’Butu on percussion and Branford Marsalis on the sax.
