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.

The Mules are taking a few weeks off for a little vacation, but are returning Sat Oct 20 for our debut at one of downtown Petaluma’s funnest watering holes, Brewsters. It’s a great brew pub with a relaxed atmosphere, yummy food and of course great beer. We’ll be doing our swampy tonk thing 2-5pm. Brewsters is at 229 Water Street.
We had a great time at the Old Western Saloon back in August and made lots of new friends. Those folks in west Marin really know how to party! So we’ll be back for another night of fun Sat Nov 3 from 9 to midnight. The Old Western Saloon is at 11201 Hwy 1 in Point Reyes Station.
We also had a big night at the Fenix in July with our friends Buck Nickels & Loose Change. We’re back Sun Nov 4 — for a solo show this time. Fenix is a classy venue with great Louisiana-inspired food to go with our Louisiana-inspired music. We play 6:30-9. The Fenix is at 919 4th St. in San Rafael, with plenty of free parking in the back.
We’re headed back to another of our favorite spots, the Lagunitas Tap Room, on Sat Nov 24. Come on by & recuperate from Black Friday! Bring your dancing shoes! We’ll be making music 3-6pm. Lagunitas is at 1280 N. McDowell in Petaluma.
One of our very favorite gigs each year is the Clif Family Winery Harvest Festival. We’ve played there for 8 consecutive years, and for each of those 8 years we’ve shared the event with artist William Callnan III. Each year William draws an outline on canvas and then encourages guests to paint on the work-in-progress throughout the evening. At the end of the night he adds the finishing touches and raffles off the finished product. In years past he has done a variety of harvest and farm related themes: chickens, sunflowers, artichokes, etc. But in 2018 he was truly inspired and quite outdid himself. His title for the year: “Harvest Mule.” As if that wasn’t cool enough in itself, the winner of the raffle turned out to be one of the Mules, so William’s masterpiece will get to stay in the family. William and his wife Nikki are also accomplished ceramicists. Check them out at http://nbcpottery.com/.
