First Appeared in The Music Box, April 2007, Volume 14, #4


The 2007 Wanee Music Festival was held on April 13-14 at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. This year's stellar line-up included performances by The Allman Brothers Band, Nickel Creek, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, The Radiators, Keller Williams, and many others. Gov't Mule supported its recent effort High & Mighty with a 13-song set on Friday afternoon on the Peach Stage. Included in the performance were renditions of Thorazine Shuffle, Patchwork Quilt, Unring the Bell, and a pairing of Endless Parade with If Loving You Is Wrong. In addition, Benmont Tench, keyboard player for Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, joined the band during a cover of Little Milton's That's What Love Will Make You Do. Fortunately, longtime Music Box supporter George Weiss was on hand to provide visual documentation of the once-in-a-lifetime experience.
