The group was originally founded during a break from The Allman Brothers Band in 1994, when Warren Haynes and original bassist Allen Woody joined forces with drummer Matt Abts, with whom Haynes played alongside in the Dickey Betts Band. In the aftermath of Woody’s tragic passing, Haynes and Abts joined forces with a barrage of legendary bass players, including John Entwistle, Jack Bruce, Phil Lesh, Bootsy Collins, Flea, Les Claypool, Mike Gordon, and more for “The Deep End,” Volume 1 and “The Deep End,” Volume 2 in 2001 and 2002, respectively, as well as 2003’s RIAA Gold Certified live offering, “The Deepest End, Live in Concert.” In 2013, the group collaborated with the likes of Ben Harper, Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Grace Potter, Dave Matthews, Myles Kennedy, Steve Winwood, and more on alternate vocal tracks for “Shout!” From 2014 through 2016, the band delivered a series of archival releases celebrating its 20th Anniversary that achieved chart success across genres as “Dub Side of the Mule” went No. 1 for Reggae, “Sco-Mule” claimed No. 2 for Jazz, and “Dark Side of Mule” landed No. 10 for Rock.
