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. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
