While both men continued to play with the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule became quite a viable entity on its own, rooted in a similar blend of blues, jazz and rock, with a pe ... More >>

I think we can all agree that battle of the bands are often tedious. With some notable exceptions, obviously, generally what you get treated to is a parade of mediocre acts that test the thresholds of your tolerance. This one, however, that the Lefthand Brewing Company is hosting next month in Longm ... More >>

Warren Haynes (playing his second show in a two-night stand at the Ogden Theatre) has a résumé that speaks for itself: Picking up the guitar as a preteen, the bluesman began playing with David Allan Coe by the age of twenty and went on to work with the likes of the Allman Brothers Band and ...
