The mighty Gov’t Mule formed in 1994, and they’re celebrating their three decades as a band next year with a tour. The first leg of the “30 Years Strong” tour will see Warren Haynes, Matt Abts, Danny Louis, and Kevin Scott covering the West Coast and Southwest. After all these years, the band is playing better than ever.

“Hard to believe it’s been 30 years and Gov’t Mule is playing with a newfound energy. Thanks, in part, to our new bass player, Kevin Scott, who is doing a fantastic job,” says Haynes. “It’s going to be fun delving into our past for this tour while creating new music at the same time.”

Scott sat in with the band last year and became a full-time member earlier this year. His deep knowledge of rock and his jazz improv style blend to make him an incredible fit for the group. In an interview in July, we asked him about it, where he gave an ode to founding Mule bassist Allen Woody.

“There’s just a certain openness with how you have to play, but it’s also aggressive,” he said. “You’re probably not trying to step on any toes, but you kind of have to sometimes. We talked about it at Peach Fest – Allen Woody was probably the best ever at doing that. Allen was alway swinging while playing under everyone’s asses. He was in his own little universe, but you can tell he took from all those old guys, from Jack Bruce and Paul McCartney and Felix Pappalardi. You can hear all the influence, but he had his own thing with it.”

The tour will run from February 8th in Vancouver, British Columbia to February 25th in Houston, Texas. Gov’t Mule is currently on tour in support of their latest album, Peace… Like a River. See below for their full itinerary.
