CHARLESTON, WV -

Just announced as a special event of the Clay Center Presents spring performance season, southern rock jam band Gov't Mule will take the stage at 8 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Clay Center in Charleston.

Hear elements of blues, funk and hard rock mixed into a southern sound as this group of musicians plays a variety of original songs from the past two decades and music from its latest album.

The group's September 2013 release, "Shout!," includes 11 new tracks plus a bonus disc. Special guests Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Ben Harper, Toots Hibbert, Glenn Hughes, Jim James, Myles Kennedy, Dave Matthews, Grace Potter, Vintage Trouble's Ty Taylor and Steve Winwood interpret the Mule's new songs on this unique addition.
