about
THE MIGHTY MULES

Based in the Bay Area for over a decade, THE MIGHTY MULES is a blues band formerly known as Kickin’ The Mule that has been described as “infectiously grooving” and “a groove-laden crossroads where slinky T-Bone Walker-esque West Coast shuffles, Stax soul scorchers and raucous Chicago blues all converge.”

Mighty Mules Band - Kelvin Dixon singin and playing drums

The band evolved over years of performing at the legendary Cheese Board Collective in Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto, where they could be heard most every Friday evening.

Lead vocal duties are handled by veteran drummer Kelvin Dixon, a versatile musician versed in blues, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, jazz and more. Lately he’s been dropping “Werewolves of London” into sets. The band also includes Isabelle Magidson on bass guitar, Lee Bloom on piano and organ, Jeff Magidson on guitar, slide guitar and vocals, as well as saxophonist Mike Waters.

The year 2020 marks the release of  YOU TALK TOO MUCH!, the band’s latest recording. Consisting of ten live tracks featuring the lead vocals of Kelvin and Jeff and spanning the gamut from such New Orleans favorites as “Big Chief” and “Down Home Girl”, to a cover of Keb Mo’s “Am I Wrong”, to “The Ninety-Nine”, an original blues shuffle lamenting toxic assets, subprime lending and credit default swaps!

We had an absolute blast! The Mighty Mules played for all crowds, younger to older, and knew how to get people on the dance floor.
