Gov't Mule's Island Exodus 10th Anniversary

Post by SunshineSue » Wed Jun 06, 2018 3:05 pm

Gov't Mule's Island Exodus 2019, the 10th of these events, has finally been announced! It's going to be January 20-24, 2019 back at the wonderful Paradise Cove Resort in Runaway Bay, a little over an hour from the Montego Bay Airport. Joining Mule this year will be the Marcus King Band, who played there 2 years ago and are spectacular, as well as Lukas Nelson and his band, who've I've only seen on streams but always like a big bunch. Needless to say, Tone Weaver and I will be heading back down for the 4th time. I really can't recommend the Island Gigs events enough, they are truly heaven if you like music on the beach and are looking to splurge a bit on a winter vacation. They just do it right, everything is easy, relaxed and friendly, I can't wait to get back down there!!

Also, the DSO Jam in the Sand will be right before this one, though hasn't been officially announced yet, and we're going to head down for that as well. It would be great to see some other TN folks down there. Let me know if you have any questions, I could talk about these trips all day! :dance

Here's the info from Gov't Mule:

It is with great pleasure that we announce the 10th Anniversary of Gov't Mule's Island Exodus returning to the Jewel Paradise Cove Resort in Runaway Bay, Jamaica for four all-inclusive music-filled days and nights from January 20-24, 2019.

Island Exodus 10 will feature more music than ever before, including special, intimate, one-of-a-kind performances and an increased number of interactive activities involving many of the musicians on hand.

Gov't Mule will play three two-set shows. Warren Haynes will perform an afternoon "storytellers" set where he’ll perform, answer questions and give some backstory to some of his favorite songs. For this supersized tenth edition, we're thrilled to have not one, but two amazing bands joining in the fun.

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and The Marcus King Band will each be on hand performing multiple sets. Ron Holloway will be returning not only as a special guest musician, but also along with MKB's Dean Mitchell, performing as "Sax On The Beach."

We are thrilled to be returning to Jamaica for our 10th time and plan on making it extra special for all of you coming with us. Last year's attendees can reserve their rooms starting next Wednesday, June 13 at 10a EDT with all other previous attendees gaining access Thursday, June 14 at 10a EDT and the general on-sale Monday, June 18 at 10a EDT at IslandExodus.com.

This looks SOOOOO appealing. I'm guessing in the 3K pp range for such an extravaganza? Jah Mon :smokesmile

It's paradise! And it's a better value than a lot of other, larger resort shows in Mexico and the DR. A pool room was $1999/person, 4 nights, all-inclusive (shows, food, drinks, airport transfers, boat snorkeling). Definitely still a splurge vacation, but one well worth taking, imho. :sunshine


Just booked our flights and I'm ready to leave now!!! :jumpeveryone

Mule sold out, but there's still room at DSO's Jam in the Sand, I do believe! We're doing both this year. Come on down, the water's fine!! :D

It was a great time at both Jam in the Sand and Island Exodus. The folks at Island Gigs really do it right!! It's wonderful to be able to chat with so many of the artists and the sound was great, despite the sign at the soundboard. Dave got some great recordings and we loved hanging out in the "taper section" again. :dance :clap

Had surprise sit-in from Donovan with Chris Robinson & Green Leaf Rustlers. He just happened to be in the area and popped in. I even got to talk to him, after having a huge crush on him for decades!! :D

For many years, when asked I would always say Jessica was my favorite song, so this was the highlight of the run for me. :listen
