Announces New Year’s Eve Run
December 30th & 31st at Beacon Theatre in NYC
“Whether fronting Gov’t Mule or performing with acts across the genres, Warren Haynes is the heart and soul of the music” – Guitar Player
“As with any Mule concert, the variety [on Bring On The Music – Live at The Capitol Theare] is staggering, as they venture from surf-punk grooves to Southern R&B balladry to spacey reggae blues. No live album could replicate the collective catharsis of their live show, but Bring on the Music comes close.” - Relix
“Bring On the Music — Live at the Capitol Theatre arrives like an elixir of excellence for the spirit…both a victory lap and an explosive invitation to visit the emporium of a band that dedicates itself to spontaneity, in a pop culture of predictability, and soul, in an age of the superficial.” - Salon
“[On Bring On The Music – Live at The Capitol Theatre] Warren Haynes sure knows how to satisfy with virtuosic blues chops and gritty vocals…” – Parade
