Heavy Southern rock and blues outfit Gov't Mule, a band that was started as an Allman Brothers side project by guitarist and songwriter Warren Haynes, represented the Peach at its most socio-political. Mule played a furious version of its Trump-era account of ideological schism, "Stone Cold Rage," and the moodily funky ode to administrative stagnation "Revolution Come … Revolution Go" in the early portion of their set. Later, Jack Pearson and Marcus King, who fronts his musical namesake, the Marcus King Band, joined the band for a rendition of Marshall Tucker Band's "Cant' You See." King complemented Hayne's soulful vocals with his coarse yet robust high-end register and traded shrieking licks with his fellow guitarists to create a particularly daring take on a classic song.
