Gov’t Mule and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will link up in Rochester, NY’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park at Manhattan Square on Saturday, September 4th for a co-headlining performance as part of the Live at MLK! concert series.

Gov’t Mule recently kicked off its return to action after more than a year off of the road with a three-night run of shows in New Haven, CT that saw the Warren Haynes-led outfit welcome special guest Ann Wilson (Heart), among other surprises.

Trombone Shorty, too, is getting back on the road with a slew of festival dates and other assorted performances. In October, the New Orleans native will make his highly anticipated return to the Big Easy to headline the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

The Trombone Shorty and Gov’t Mule pairing will hit a handful of states across the country this summer—including Colorado, Utah, and South Carolina—but the Rochester show on September 4th will mark jazz-funk/blues-rock hybrid billing’s only stop in the Northeast.

“To get both of these groups on stage is going to be a night full of music magic,” said Jeff Springut CEO/Producer of Rochester Events. “There is no better way to celebrate the return of live music than with rock legends and a jazz phenom!”

Alongside the music, fans at Live at MLK! will be able to enjoy a craft beer garden featuring a rotating showcase of IPAs, ciders, seltzers, and more as well as a “Bubble Bar” serving Prosecco and mimosas.

The Gov’t Mule/Trombone Shorty show, presented by Rochester Events/Springut Group Inc., will close out the summer schedule for Live at MLK! The series will also feature upcoming performances by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong (7/14), Ripe (7/29), Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe (8/12), Eric Krasno Trio: E3 (8/26), Larkin Poe (8/26), and more.
