Instead of doing an album of duets, on “Shout!,” Gov’t Mule took a novel approach, removing Warren Haynes’ vocals from the record and replacing them with an all-star cast of singers like Dr. John, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Dave Matthews, Steve Winwood and Elvis Costello.
All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman” will feature a lineup of major stars paying tribute to the Allman Brothers Band’s leader.
The 25th installment of Haynes’ Christmas concert, taking place December 13 and 14 at the US Cellular Center in Asheville, North Carolina, will feature Michael Franti, Haynes’ own band Gov’t Mule, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, OAR, the Phil Lesh Quintet and the John Scofield Uberjam Band, among others.
Between onstage collaborations, surprise guests and even “The Weight,” Friday night’s (July 26) stop on Bob Dylan’s Americanarama tour — featuring Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham — bore at least a little resemblance to The Band’s all-star concert, The Last Waltz, or Dylan’s ’70s era “Rolling Thunder Revue.” The show took place at Pier A in Hoboken, New Jersey, a beautiful venue right across the Hudson from New York City.
One of the biggest jam band festivals of the summer kicked off yesterday. Mountain Jam, held at Hunter Mountain in New York, is curated by guitarist/singer Warren Haynes, who is front man of Gov’t Mule, a member of the Allman Brothers Band, and a solo artist.

In October of 2012, one of the best lineups of rock, country and soul acts came together to pay tribute to the late Band drummer/singer Levon Helm at New Jersey’s Izod Center.
The most surprising thing about the tour is that it hadn’t happened before now. There was clearly a respect and a bond between the two bands. It’s truly a co-headlining affair: The Allmans played first, whereas the prior night at Long’s Island’s Nikon At Jones Beach, they closed the show.
