:: MELVIN SEALS & JGB (with special guest Ron Holloway!) ::
Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. Melvin is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become “Jam Band Music”. From blues to funk to rock to jazz, Melvin Seals serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up.

Melvin and JGB bring an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations of Dave Hebert’s guitar and vocals, John Paul McLean’s savory bass, Pete Lavezzoli’s hearty drums and, of course, a heapin’ helpin’ of the wizard’s magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. Along with Shirley Starks and Cheryl Rucker on back-up vocals, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience dancing and smiling (and some staring in amazement) for hours.

Adding his rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder Jerry nicknamed him “Master of the Universe”. Melvin continues to treat music lovers to his unique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself!

JUST CONFIMRED: Tenor saxophonist Ron Holloway (Warren Haynes Band, Susan Tedeschi Band, Dizzy Gillespie Quintet) will be joining JGB for this performance.

Jamie McLean had a big decision to make in 2006. He could continue to tour the globe as the guitarist for New Orleans’ famed Dirty Dozen Brass Band playing sets at Madison Square Garden, Bonnaroo, Japan’s Fuji Rock and working with the likes of Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews and Norah Jones. Or he could do it his way, take the road less traveled and begin to lead Jamie McLean Band. It seemed as though there was only one option.

“It was certainly a tough choice to leave my bread and butter gig but I could feel it in my heart that I needed to be singing and recording and performing my own music. I’ve never been happier!”

For the last five years McLean has never looked back and he’s been relentlessly touring and recording with Jamie McLean Band. Jamie McLean Band, which also features Brian Griffin on drumsand Ben Mars on bass has released 5 albums Sunday Morning (2011), Time Of My Life (2011), Completely (2010), American Heartache (2008) and This Time Around (2006).

Touring is a staple for Jamie McLean Band and they’ve hit the road with the likes of Gregg Allman, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Blues Traveler, North Mississippi Allstars, Joan Armatrading, Drive By Truckers and Gov’t Mule. Jamie Mclean Band has also appeared at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, Gathering of the Vibes, and Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam to name a few. McLean has also enjoyed the sponsorship of Gibson Guitars, Fuchs Amplifiers, La Bella Strings, Blue Microphones, John Varvatos and Esquire Magazine.

Jamie McLean Band is now set to release their first and long awaited live album. Recorded at the famed Gibson Showroom in New York City Live At Gibson captures the band in its element. Live and in front of a captivated crowd is where Jamie McLean Band truly shines and this night was no different. The band dug deep into their catalog to produce a set list and album that features their original brand of blues, rock andsoul. Special guests like American Idol winner Taylor Hicks and Robert Randolph keys man Jason Crosby add some great flavor to the set. Bluesy staples like “Crazy About You” and “Country Living” get turned up even more in front of a crowd and JMB does more than justice to covers like Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider” and Otis Redding’s “Mr. Pitiful.”

Jamie McLean Band will tour behind their new album throughout the US and Canada this summer. Don’t miss their amazing live set when they roll into a town near you!
