Gov’t Mule, moe. and – drum roll, please – the Black Keys.

The Black Keys dynamic duo – featuring Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney – will be headlining the Saturday night. The twosome has already won six Grammy Awards, and they’ve been nominated for three more in 2015: Best Rock Album for Turn Blue, Best Rock Song for “Fever” and Best Rock Performance for “Fever.”

Former Nippertonians moe. – who are scheduled to ring in the new year with a two-night stand at the Palace Theatre on Tuesday & Wednesday, December 30 & 31 – will be making their Mountain Jam debut as the headliners on Thursday, June 4.

Guitarslinger Warren Haynes leads Gov’t Mule – who recently wowed the crowd in concert at the Palace Theatre last month – will play two shows at Mountain Jam, including a very special late night Dark Side of the Mule set performing the music of Pink Floyd.

Early bird tickets for the 11th annual Mountain Jam are now on sale. Three-day (Friday-Sunday) tickets are $185; $219 with camping. Four-day all-festival tickets are $205; $239 with camping. VIP tickets are also available.

    Right you are, OswegoMatt! Thanks for your sticklerness. It was actually June 8, 2003…
