These mules are a pack of veteran pro musicians who kick up an americana storm wherever they go with electrifying live musical performances.

The distinctive "Miracle Mule" sound includes a rock-solid honky tonk rhythm section, with Pedal Steel Guitar, Accordion, Washboard and more.  

If you like to dance, whether swing or line dancing, and you like good old rock and roll with a old-school vibe, Miracle Mule is a band that you must see.

    We got nothing but positive feedback from everyone, and we hope Miracle Mule will be back for next year's festival. There were plenty of folks who came to the Cajun Festival specifically for the music, and we didn't hear a single negative. Jean Y.
