From one celebration to the next. First, it was the 4th of July on the Outer Banks and now we have Government Mule coming to Roanoke Island Festival Park this Sunday.
Their music is not easily classified. It’s kind of rock but with a lot of influences added. That’s probably why they have stayed popular for 20 years. Because they never let anyone put them into a musical box they have been about to buck the odds and just keep turning out great music.
As an outdoor venue, Roanoke Island Festival Park is about as good as it gets. The setting, overlooking Roanoke Sound is beautiful. The wide grassy lawn is perfect for a night under the stars. The design of the stage and the sound system seems to work really well-giving concertgoers a good experience.
As concerts go, Government Mule promises to be one of the highlights, if not the high point of the Outer Banks concert season.
More Outer Banks Live Music with Government Mule
Government Mule probably the biggest name to come to the Outer Banks this summer, but there is a lot of live music everywhere.
Jack Brown’s in Kill Devil Hills has live music every night. It’s in their backyard and the outdoor setting is nice.
The Outer Banks Brewing Station, also in KDH features two live shows on some night—an early show in their back yard under the wind turbine and a late show. We’ll give a special shoutout to the Tuesday night show—Harrison & Wentz Present: A Bewitching Night of Mystic Tropicalia. It’s wild, it’s unpredictable and it the humor is often broad and slapstick but there is also some surprisingly sophisticated moments.
For a great outdoor experience, certainly, take a trip up to the Cotton Gin and Sanctuary Vineyards in Jarvisburg. Their Acoustic Sunset is wonderful.
