Richmond, VA-based acoustic jam-rock sextet the Pat McGee Band included guitarist Al Walsh, keyboardist Jonathan Williams, bassist John Small, percussionist Chardy McEwan, and drummer Chris Williams, in addition to titular singer/guitarist McGee, an East Coast favorite since the 1995 release of his solo album From the Wood. Upon forming in 1996, the group toured relentlessly, averaging over 250 live dates each year; their debut LP, Revel, appeared in 1997, followed in early 1999 by the live General Admission. Signing to major label Giant, the Pat McGee Band released the Jerry Harrision-produced Shine in the spring of 2000, followed by Save Me in 2004 on Kirtland Records.

“I never expected any of these legends to say yes, but I figured it was worth a shot,” says PAT MCGEE about his star-studded new self-titled album. “If nothing else, I wanted them to know that I felt they would have been the perfect band for these songs. I have never been a guy that asked for favors or perks in this business, but on this project I definitely swung for the fences and thought to myself, ‘Why not? The worst they can say is ‘no’.”

Fortunately, the iconic players he had hoped to work with gave him a resounding, “Yes!” The dream team McGee assembled includes musical legends Russ Kunkel, Leland Sklar, Waddy Wachtel, Danny Kortchmar, and Jeff Pevar (nicknamed “The Section”). Other notable musicians such as Little Feat’s Paul Barrere, Blues Traveler’s John Popper, Train’s Pat Monahan, Punchbrother’s Gabe Witcher as well as Pat McGee’s own band contributed to the album’s sound.
