Gov't Mule has announced their Island Exodus run in Jamaica for 2018! It runs January 13-17, with special guests JJ Grey & Mofro, Audley Freed (ABB guitarist) and Ron Holloway. There will also be a TBA guest band pre-run on the 12th and electric Hot Tuna for an additional night afterwards on the 17th. Should be another great party, and with Audley there, I'm guessing a big focus on ABB tunes as well as on songs from Mule's new album, Revolution Come, Revolution Go, which is fantastic. :guitarred

On-sale dates are staggered, starting 7/6 for those attending last year, and general on-sale starting 7/10. Be aware that it does sell out on the first general sale day, but if a lot of waiting list people do end up getting rooms. Tone Weaver and I will be making our 3rd trek down there and we can't recommend it enough if you're looking for great music, food, drinks and herb on the beach without crowds!! :dance

The Island Gigs folks just announced the final band for this year's run, and I'm very pleased! It's a new group with old favorites in it, California Kind. Basically it's the David Nelson Band without David. So I get to see Barraco, even though we're not doing Jam in the Sand until next year and probably not going to the DSO RR run. Come on, January!! :jumpclap

From the IG folks:

California Kind, a new band consisting of longtime Warren Haynes friends and collaborators John Molo, Rob Barraco, Barry Sless & Pete Sears along with singer/guitarist Katie Skene, will be joining the party! The band will be performing on Exodus Eve Friday, January 12th, as well as an additional daytime set during the event.
