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, Sandy Geller 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.
