Brooklyn Bowl

Played with JMB at Brooklyn Bowl last night – supporting Galactic. Great hang with Stanton Moore, Warren Haynes, and Corey Glover. A great mix of New Orleans party with some heroes from my past.

Bonnaroo !!!

I played with the Jamie McLean Band at Bonnaroo! A 90,000 person music party in the hot desert of Tennesee. Highlights included: Sonny Emory with Bruce Hornsby, Jerry Douglas with Alison Krauss, Loretta Lynn, Neil Young with Buffalo Springfield, Brian Blade and Dan Lanois with Black Dub, My Morning Jacket, and a powerful set by Gracy Potter. What a blast!

June Update


We had a great time touring down to New Orleans and back. Tracked with JMB at Piety Street Studios in New Orleans, with Ivan Neville, Terence Higgins, Anders Osborne, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Killer! These are my ludwigs that I used – featuring my newly acquired 60’s red white and blue sparkle 26″ marching kick drum! Headed to see Brad Paisley tomorrow in Hartford, and then headed to play at Bonnaroo this coming week!

Great shows

2 exciting nyc shows this week. Played at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night with Zach Williams & The Bellow. This is a great new band that features great singers, upright bass, pedal steel, piano and Zach’s singing and songwriting. Also – tomorrow night March 3rd is the official release and release party for the first Jamie McLean Band EP this year. It is called Time Of My Life. We tracked it at Trout Recording with Bryce Goggin and mixed it with John Agnello. 2 of my rock record heroes!
