We played for these nice folks last year and it was super fun! The whole town comes out for a fantastic barbecue dinner with red checked table cloths, and then at 8pm Miracle Mule kicks into gear and the dancing starts. Tons of Fun. Dinner and drinks can be had for $20. Located on Chiles Pope Valley Road in Pope Valley, CA

Miracle Mule is the swampy tonk dance band that everybody is talking about.
Miracle Mule is an Americana supergroup located right here in the North Bay, with serious local powerhouse talent. Members have played or toured with several national headliners, including John Hiatt, Chris Hillman of the Byrds, Hank Ballard & the Midnighters and more.
The fiery live performances of Miracle Mule have been known to cause fits of dancing and spontaneous bursts of uncontrolled merriment. Lead vocals in the band are handled by three talented veteran performers, Geoff Mack, Amanda Currie and Dick Bay, with heavy emphasis on harmonies and fun vocal interplay.
Miracle Mule was formed in 2009, has a large and established following and regularly plays large events, festivals and club engagements, including The Napa Earth Day Festival, Isleton Cajun Festival and Novato festival of Art, Wine & Music, among others.
Miracle Mule songs are a mix of old and new, known and unknown, originals and covers. All songs have that special and unique Swampy Tonk sound -- there really is nothing else like it. The Miracle Mule sound includes a rock-solid honky tonk rhythm section paired with a heavy dose of New Orleans seasoning, including accordion, rub board and pedal steel guitar.
Miracle Mule’s first CD, Nice Ass, was released in 2012.
Miracle Mule's second CD, Swampy Tonkin’ is currently in production and should be available for purchase in Spring of 2015.
