There already was a Warren Haynes Band pre-Mule consisting of Lincoln Schleifer on bass, Steve Holley on drums and Danny Louis on keys.

Yes, I know. I had a chance to see them many years ago. This is WHB 2.0.

Who is in it? I saw the debut of the original at the Lone Star Cafe' way back when. It was being filmed for Japanese high def television, which was revolutionary at the time. Also caught them at the late great Wetlands a couple and opening for the Brothers at Jones Beach. Warren is just a joy to watch playing. There's not many, if any, better.
