Miracle Mule is a rocking, hoof-stomping, tail-swishing band from Marin County, California. Some folks might describe our music as good-time Americana, others might say it's down-home country with a heavy dose of Louisiana hot sauce. We prefer to just call it "swampy tonk." However you describe it, it's fun and energetic, irresistibly danceable, with rich harmonies and solid song writing. We play at most of the more prestigious venues in the north bay, as well as a host of wineries, festivals and concert series. We have a loyal following, but there's always room for more. Check us out soon. Dance, Laugh, Bray.

Next Wednesday night the Mules will make their debut at Jaxon SF, the city's premier country & western bar. Based in the Marina district at 3231 Fillmore, Jaxson features a full bar and hopefully a full dance floor. Come help us introduce swampy-tonk to the good folks at Jaxson.
We always have a great time at our noontime concerts at the Marin Country Mart. [If that doesn't ring a bell, you may still know it as Larkspur Landing.] In addition to a great free concert from your favorite Mules, there will also be a nice variety of food trucks and restaurants to satisfy any taste. Show is 12:30 to 2:30. See ya there!
The Old Western Saloon in Point Reyes Station is a classic funky honky-tonk, and a Marin institution. We're looking forward to our return engagement there (we were there years ago) and bringing the joys of swampy tonk music to the good folks of west Marin. Music happens 9:00 to midnight.
Fairfax is one of the best towns in Marin for live music and 19 Broadway is one of the best venues in Fairfax. There will be lots of great music there on the 26th. The Mules will take the stage at 8:30 and promise to rock the night away. And before that, our good friend Connie Ducey will be singing classic jazz tunes from 5:30 to 8:00. It ain't swampy-tonk, but it's sure mighty fine music.
The New York Times has finally caught up with the Mules. The Times' May 5 headline declared "Calling Washington a Swamp is Offensive to Swamps." The editorial, by Martha Serpas, went on to say "the use of 'swamp' as a pejorative [reflects] an ecological ignorance and a general disparagement of the swampier regions of the country." Hey, that's just what we've been saying for over a year now! Well, perhaps not quite that eloquently. But compare the Times editorial with the introduction to our song, "Romp in the Swamp" from this August 2017 video:
