Gov’t Mule’s annual Island Exodus returned for a thirteenth time this past January with one very big difference—no Warren Haynes. Uncle Warren was sick and sidelined for the Jamaica getaway.
When word got out that Warren wasn’t able to fulfill his obligations, plenty of guitar slingers jumped in to keep the Mule train forging ahead including John Scofield and Jackie Greene among others. To open the final night of Island Exodus, the Mule opened with a rollicking “Mule” jam that segued into “Afro Blue” before settling into a great cover of James Brown’s
“Doing it to Death.”
