Over the weekend, Red Rocks Amphitheatre became home to Gov’t Mule, Yonder Mountain String Band, and The Marcus King Band. It was the perfect Saturday evening, filled with cross-collaborations throughout all three sets. The fun began with The Marcus King Band, who welcomed the former Allman Brothers Band and current Gov’t Mule guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes for a beautiful rendition of “Dreams.” Then, Yonder Mountain String Band took the stage for a full set, which again included Warren Haynes for their original tune “Sideway Stars” and a cover of Etta James‘ “Damn Your Eyes.” The collaborations continued with Gov’t Mule’s portion of the evening, who welcomed Marcus King for a set-closing “Whipping Post,” then welcoming YMSB’s Dave Johnston, Adam Aijala, Allie Kral, and Jake Joliff for a momentous “Melissa” > “Mountain Jam” > “Melissa” encore.
We’ve compiled all audio and videos from the spectacular Saturday show, which you an enjoy below.
