Break out the hacky sack and the tie-dye – one of the top US jam bands, Gov’t Mule featuring Warren Haynes, will be making their Israeli debut on June 18 at Reading 3 in Tel Aviv. Haynes, one of the top blues rock guitarist working today, has ably filled the shoes over the last two decades of two guitar giants – Duane Allman and Jerry Garcia.
Serving as full time lead guitarist in The Allman Brothers Band since
1989, Haynes has also appeared in various Grateful Dead spinoff groups
and last year toured with the re-formed Dead minus original late
Gov’t Mule, the quartet Haynes formed in 1994 with fellow Allman
Brothers’ member, the late Allen Woody, mines a similar vein as that of
the Allman Brothers and the Dead, with even more of an emphasis on
guitar solos provided by the explosive Haynes. When the Allman Brothers
come off the road, Haynes goes right back on it with Gov’t Mule, who
will be touring summer festivals in Europe. For more information on the show, go to www.icp-concerts.com.
