Really looking forward to this show.Could be the only show this year for the MULE,until the New Year's run at the beacon.
"Get behind the MULE" was great! I'm hoping they do some songs at Mountain Jam that they didn't play at the Beacon last december.
Alot of people had the theme for the 31st as Jimi Hendrix,so i'm hoping for so Jimi.
I know there were alot great people at Woodstock,but upstate New York like N.Y.C. the spirit of Jimi is still there.I get goose bumps when i hear the MULE play Jimi.
"Mr. Big" from the 1st MULE album would also be nise.
The MULE train is on it's way to Mountain Jam!
Like i said before i'm really looking forward to this!
Everybody enjoy the Mountain Jam 2011!
MULE!!!

Good to see you'll be in attendance once again, Ken. It isn't a real Mt. Jam without you on the mountain.

I had a great time at the show and thought Mule was off the hook! They were amazing in both sets, totally kicking ass. Mule is the perfect vehicle for Warren and I think Mule is a flawless band. Every member of the band is incredibly talented. I will be seeing a whole lot of Mule shows from here on out. They are my new favorite band !!

This show just made us realize that however much we like the WHB project, Mule is the total real deal. WHether the world at large ever knows it or not, Warren makes magical art with Gov't Mule. This show was something special, even by Mule standards as I knew it would be, being their only appearance this year. I was at the rail right in front of Danny and my face practically melted off from the intensity of it. Long Live the Mule!

I had 3 Mule Virgins within our group this year ........... Let's just say that after Saturday's show they were all blabbering in incredible superlatives ! ................... Personally I thought the rust of not playing together in months showed a bit for this show ( as in "I've seen better from Mule" ), but as Danny said in his face book quote "What other band could pull of a show that good after 4 months off ?!?!?"

I thought it was a great Mule show. I definitely noticed some rust, but Danny is absolutely right in that only a band as talented as Gov't Mule could pull off a show like Saturday Night's without having played together in months. And was the weather this year the best of any Mt. Jam? I don't think it could have been better.

I thought the first half of the first set was average. I wasn't wild about the choice of songs and didn't think it was anything special. Still great but not special. THEN the band went insane starting with War Pigs and never stopping for one second until what was it 1:15 A.M.?

That's a very accurate description, Doug. It's almost like they intended to come out a bit slow and then blow our ears and faces off. My only disappointment was that they played 32/20 with the Dickinson brothers. It was incredible don't get me wrong, it's just that I was hoping they'd try a different tune with Luther and Cody. It seems whenever either of these two sit in, it's always on the tune 32/20. But it was great, nonetheless. And who was the harp player who sat in most of the night? I really enjoyed him and thought he was very good.

Thanks for the info., Northman. He was great. Is he Native American? A handsome man whatever his ethnicity. And man, he can blow a mean harp! He added some very tasty harp to the evening.

I made one mistake. The show lifted off with the familiar opening sounds of "Won't Get Fooled Again". Hook Herrera is a great guy and a hellava harp player. I love seeing his enthusiasm the way he just grins ear to ear while the others play.

Yes, Hook was incredible on the Mountain as was Ron Holloway!!! I also agree that the show took off when they kicked into 'Won't Get Fooled Again' into 'War Pigs'. Jorgen was incredible on bass all night as well!!! The only thing I would have replaced in the show were 'Unring The Bell' which I'm not a fan of or the other reggae song they did. Just not my thing. Otherwise I thought it was a crazy good show!!!

Me too. A solid "She Said She Said" would have worked great there. Or possibly Slackjaw Jezebel with extended outrow if they wanted an original. But we quibble.

Depends on taste. I never liked Unring the bell or the whole reggae thing that Mule did during the"Mighty High" period. It's probably the only thing Warren has ever done that I am not overly fond of.

Hook Herrera is an awesome harp player. And for those that didn't know, he plays on a few tunes on Life Before Insanity, Woody's last Mule album.

Same here Doug. The reggae stuff is the only Warren-Mule material that I don't care for. I don't even own 'Mighty High'.
