Pop Break Live: Gov’t Mule ‘Dark Side of the Mule’ Tour with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening at The PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ on Saturday August 19, 2023
It was a hot night of tributes (and original music) at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey on Saturday night August 19.
Gov’t Mule, the seminal guitar-driven blues/jam/classic rock outfit, brought their Dark Side of the Mule show (where they pay homage to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon throughout their set) to Central Jersey’s favorite summer shed.
Opening things up for Mule was another tribute act — Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening (stylized JBLZE). Bonham, the son of Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, is no stranger to paying homage to his late father’s band as he’s not only tour with JBLZE since 2009, but he played the original lineup multiple times, with the last time being in 2007.
