Island Exodus Update

We hope everyone is having a great summer. Not to rush all the way through the end of the year but we have a bunch of exciting updates regarding Gov't Mule's Island Exodus 6. There are a very limited numbers of rooms remaining. Those who are thinking of joining us in January should not wait as the event will be sold out shortly.

NEW SPECIAL GUESTS ADDED
We're excited to announce that Sonny Landreth will be joining us as a Special Guest! Sonny's played with Gov't Mule several times including at The Deepest End and this past May's epic show at The Saenger Theatre in New Orleans. Great things always happen when Sonny sits in.



We are all saddened by the passing of Johnny Winter last month. We had all been looking forward to bringing Johnny to Jamaica for the first time ever. It was somewhere he had wanted to finally visit and perform. We were surprised and extremely honored when he initially approached us to see if we were interested in having him as a Special Guest at Island Exodus. Of course we were! To help honor his memory, Johnny's guitar player and tour manager will still be coming and will sit in with Mule.

ANDERS OSBORNE'S BAND ANNOUNCED
Everyone is excited for Anders Osborne's return to Island Exodus. His band will include Eric Bolivar (drums), Carl Dufrene (bass) and John "Papa" Gros (keyboards).

MORE INFO COMING SOON
One of our goals for this year has been to add more activities and continue to make Island Exodus a completely unique, can't miss event for all Gov't Mule fans. To this end, we'll have a bunch more stuff to announce in the coming weeks.

See you in Jamaica

JOHNNY WINTER

We are all saddened to learn of the passing of Johnny Winter. We were extremely excited to have him be a part of Gov't Mule's Island Exodus this coming January. It was something Johnny was truly looking forward to. In his 70 years of living, he had traveled all around the world, but Jamaica was one place that had eluded him. It would have been an honor to have helped grant him that wish of visiting and performing there.

We are proud to once again work with Gov't Mule and Hard Head Management to present Island Exodus 6. The experience of the event is unparalleled. You get to see and hear your favorite band up close and personal in one of the most unique venues in the Caribbean: Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa. The property, by today's hotel standards, is huge. It also commands an impressive stretch of Negril's breathtaking beach.

During the daytime the unbelievable beach invites lovers of water sports to windsurf, scuba dive, sail a sunfish or simply do nothing at all! At night you'll watch Gov't Mule perform right on the beach, under the stars and moonlight. You will also be able to whet your appetite in one of the 6 classic restaurants offering Mediterranean, Italian, Jamaican cuisine, continental menus, plus breakfast and luncheon buffets galore. From great live music and top shelf booze, to all the meals, snacks, water sports, it will be a concert event you'll never forget!

At Island Gigs, we live by the mentality, "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem!" In 1987, we brought our first travelers to Negril. Back then, it was a sleepy fishing village and it's never been the same since. Now one the hottest destinations in the Caribbean, the seven-mile beach offers laid back charm for people looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Uncover Negril's best kept secret, five miles of winding coral cliffs. Spend a free day cliff-diving, snorkeling and exploring underground caves at places like Rick's Cafe and The Rock House. Then, be ready for one of the most impressive sunsets you've experienced as you kick back with a Jamaican rum punch and watch the sky turn pink before it falls dark. The magic of Negril, is it still keeps its laid back charm even after all these years.
