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.
Summer is the funnest season of the year & hey, look, here it is! If you happen to be planning a backyard BBQ, a neighborhood block party, a company picnic or a fund-raiser for your organization, how about ratcheting the fun up a notch with some live music? And live music doesn’t come much livelier than the Mules. Once you have a date in mind contact us at Dick@MiracleMule.com and we’ll start planning this thing together. Party on / Mule on! Learn More.

The big day starts with a late-morning / early-afternoon home game at Marinwood Park. It’s the annual Lions Club Classic Car Show, with everything from Model T’s to hot rods to muscle cars — plus barbecued oysters, Silberman’s ice cream and of course the Swampy Tonk stylings of Miracle Mule, back for our 4th consecutive year. [No word yet on whether Geoff will be entering his cherry red convertible.] Join us at 575 Miller Creek Rd.
Then to cap the day off it’s a twilight away game at the Clif Family Winery Tasting Room in St. Helena. We’ll be joining them for the 9th(!) consecutive year to help celebrate their harvest and release of their 2016 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon wines. It’s one of our funnest shows of the year so come dance the night away under the harvest moon. 709 Main St., St. Helena. Purchase tickets.
In late August the Mules released their first single, Delta Queen, from their upcoming Romp In The Swamp album. It’s currently available for purchase on Amazon and streaming on Spotify. Song-writer Geoff Mack's song was inspired by the Delta Queen, the last surviving steam-powered overnight passenger boat plying the watershed of the Mississippi. It was built in Stockton in 1927 and began life shuttling passengers between San Francisco and Sacramento. During WWII it was repainted battleship gray, commissioned as the USS Delta Queen and transported wounded to Bay Area hospitals. Keyboardist Dick Bay knew it in a later incarnation. He grew up in Louisville KY, which purchased the Belle of Louisville in 1962. The following year began the tradition of an annual steamboat race as part of KY Derby week. The Belle's opponent in those first years was . . . the Delta Queen, then out of Cincinnati. Much to the chagrin of Louisvillians, she nearly always won. She was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1989. She will soon come out of retirement and is currently undergoing repairs in Houma LA (which, coincidentally, is the setting for another Mules song, The Bayou Delight).
