The members of Gov’t Mule never lost sight of where they began.

During a break from The Allman Brothers Band in 1994, Haynes and original bassist Allen Woody formed Gov’t Mule with drummer Matt Abts, with whom Haynes played alongside in the Dickey Betts Band. Confidently merging rock, blues, jazz, and funk, the trio carved out a place in the American rock 'n' roll canon with a string of influential albums, beginning with 1995's Gov’t Mule, followed by Dose, and Life Before Insanity.

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. Those records were followed by 2003’s RIAA Gold Certified live offering, The Deepest End, Live in Concert.
