Best known for providing his tasteful guitar textures to the New Orleans-based jazz outfit the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Jamie McLean has garnered worldwide praise for his fretboard mastery. Backed by a dynamic voice loaded with soul, McLean’s transformation from sideman to front man of the Jamie McLean Band has been seamless. With drops of southern roots rock, blues, R&B, funk and soul oozing from their amplifiers, the Jamie McLean Band offers “honest rock and roll” that pulls no punches. Night in and night out, Jamie McLean’s performances are smothered in soul and confident command of the six-string. Take the straightforward, no-nonsense rock of the Rolling Stones and The Black Crowes and mix in the personal sincerity of Ryan Adams and Tom Petty and the result is the Jamie McLean Band.
