The Mules are fortunate to have two accomplished songwriters on board and a solid repertoire of original songs.  The songs are catchy -- folks in the audience often find themselves singing along on first listen.  They're irresistibly danceable -- we dare you to stand still while listening to a Mules tune.  They're uniquely humorous.  And they're memorable -- audiences request to hear them again and again.  Miracle Mule's 2nd CD, 2015's Swampy Tonkin', is a showcase of the band's original music.

The baker’s dozen tunes on “Swampy Tonkin’” are all sparkling originals. –Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal


This is the funnest CD I've heard in years. Still trying to get the grin off my face! –Peter B., Fairfax CA

 You can’t saddle this mule with repetitious, sound-alike songs.  Swampy Tonkin’ is a whimsical romp through a musical landscape influenced by the styles of Bob Wills, Professor Longhair and Louis Jordan. --Norman C., San Francisco CA

A romp in the swamp you won't want to miss.  What a well-crafted and fun set of songs! Songs like Swampy Tonkin' are just plain made for shuffling your feet. –Ed P., Amherst MA.

You can purchase your very own copy of Swampy Tonkin' on CD Baby, Amazon or iTunes.  Or stream it on Spotify.
