Volume 1 Of The Mule's Two Expanded Live Shows!
Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Gov't Mule Rated 7th!
By the time the world hears the performances from this show, Govt Mule will have celebrated 25 years as a band, which is something they never could have imagined. Its no easy task keeping a band together for 25 years. You dont get to do that without having built, nurtured, depended on, and tested important relationships. In fact, with any band thats stayed around that long, its all about relationships. When the band decided to document where they are currently (musically speaking), it was immediately clear that, amongst other things, this release should be a celebration of those relationships.
Bring On The Music: Live At The Capitol Theatre is a commemoration curated with the audience experience at the forefront. Without our audience, there would be no chance or reason for us to be around 25 years later, says founding member and lead guitarist Warren Haynes. Theyve stuck with us from the beginning, and this is our way of including them in the celebration of our 25 years together.
From the projects inception it was always planned on being filmed and recorded at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Its one of our favourite venues, offers Haynes. Since it re-opened in 2012, weve had the pleasure of playing there multiple times with many magical shows taking place over the years. Additionally, bringing on Danny Clinch to direct the film was always part of the plan. Our relationship with Danny pre-dates the formation of Govt Mule, explains Haynes. Weve watched each others careers grow in ways that included twists and turns neither of us couldve predicted. He shot photos for many Mule records throughout the years, including our very first record. It was an obvious choice to work with him again this time around.
All in all, the music is the connective tissue that brings all these relationships and experiences together. Music is the thing thats helped us individually and collectively get through hard times, and its driven every decision weve made as band since we began in 94, states Haynes. The music has connected the band with the audience, and we all continue to grow together with it.
Govt Mule formed in 1994 as a side project of Warren Haynes and Allen Woody from The Allman Brothers Band.
