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.

Last year we had a great time performing at the Wine Country Carnival held at the scenic Jacuzzi Family Winery in Sonoma. We'll be back on Saturday April 14 and are looking forward to being part of another great event that includes fun games, a silent auction, some delicious food and, of course, stellar wines. The annual carnival benefits UCP of the North Bay, raising money for recreational programs that allow children and adults with disabilities to experience new opportunities, build self-esteem, and further their independence. "Miracle Mule is truly excited to be a part of this fundraiser," says Mules percussionist Brian Dettor, "this will be a ton of fun!!" Details.
Here's a video of fun moments from last year's carnival. As an added bonus, the soundtrack is the Mule's signature tune, "Swampy Tonkin'."
Our February Mardi Gras Moose Lodge "tour" kicked off with a rollicking party in Vacaville. The whole place was decked out for Mardi Gras, everyone came in crazy costumes and the authentic Cajun food was tres délicieux -- we swore we were in the French Quarter! "Miracle Mule was a true hit for the party!" said Traci O. from the Vacaville Lodge. "They are super nice and the music was awesome! We loved them and I'm pleased to have found them! Thanks again to Miracle Mule!"
Two weeks later the "tour" moved on to the Santa Rosa Moose lodge for a combined Mardi Gras Party / Casino Night. Technically, it was a belated Mardi Gras party, but you'd never know it from an enthusiastic crowd that was every bit as fun as Vacaville. They had roulette and blackjack tables, yummy hors d'oeuvres and desserts and a huge and beautiful dance floor. "Everyone enjoyed the band very much!" said Kathleen N. from the Santa Rosa lodge. "Lots of people danced. The music gave our Mardi Gras event just the right vibe. They were a huge part of our event's success!" She's right -- since Louisiana music (Cajun, Zydeco and New Orleans R&B) is our forte, the Mules are perfect for Mardi Gras celebrations. And now Moose lodges are our new favorite venue. Hope we'll be back and see our new friends again soon.
Fans and friends packed the HopMonk, the Kickin' Country Girls were on hand to teach line dancing and other friends dropped by to sit in for a song or a dozen. But best of all we raised $1500 for the North Bay Fire Relief Fund, making it a very special Christmas Eve Eve indeed. Thanks to everyone who was there for a truly Miraculous night! Details
