"Honey Island Swamp Band formed when Wilkinson and Mule met in San Francisco after both musicians fled New Orleans during the Hurricane Katrina disaster. The pair met bassist, Sam Price and drummer, Garland Paul at John Lee Hooker's Boom Boom Room. That led to a Sunday night residency at the Fillmore Street club. Eventually club sound engineer, recorded a 7-song debut album with the band at the Robert Plant Studio he worked at.
