Gov’t Mule Welcomes Guests At 1st Of 2 At The Beacon Theatre

Gov’t Mule continued their New Year’s Run on Saturday with their first of two shows at their home away from home now of the year New York City’s Beacon Theatre. For the next night in a row, then the jamband stalwarts were linked with a few of their longtime friends welcoming Oz Noy, Jimmy Vivino, Paul Ill along with Danny Draher.

Warren Haynes & Co. looked for their own 2013 release Shout! To get things moving opening up the night with “World Boss. ” The pairing of “Lola, Leave Your Light On” along with “Mr. High & Mighty” followed. Mule would adhere to selections from their catalogue off chooses on “Mr. Man,” “Pressure Under Fire” along with “Slackjaw Jezebel. ” The four-piece welcomed their first guest of the day out next as Draher emerged. The blues-guitarist, that last sat with Mule nearly 12 years ago to this day at the Beacon, assisted on a take on Duke Ellington’s “Things Ain’t What They Used To Be. ” A teased-filled variant of “Funny Little Tragedy” which saw the band work in nods to The Police’s “The Bed’s Too Big Without You” along with “Message In a Bottle” along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ “Runnin’ Down A Dream” attracted the opening frame to an end.

The foursome gained back to “Larger Than Life” from their sophomore studio effort Dose to open up the next stanza. The blues-rock action would work their way through choices from Revolution Come…Revolution Go, Life Before Insanity and Mighty High. Noy emerged towards the back half of this group teaming with Mule onto a cover of Billy Cobham’s “Red Baron” from the jazz-fusion drummer’s 1973 record Spectrum. “Stone Cold Rage” and “Thorazine Shuffle” assisted close things out.
