The Pat McGee Band will perform at Hamilton on Saturday, Feb. 2, at 9 p.m. in the Beinecke Village Annex.
Since its formation in early 1996, the Pat McGee Band's grassroots growth has been phenomenal. The band, with rich harmonies and energized acoustic rock, has been selling out clubs, such as Irving Plaza, New York, NY; House of Blues, Chicago; Paradise, Boston; Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, and the 9:30 Club and the Bayou in Washington, DC. PMB's biggest sellout -- more than 7,000 -- occurred on July 2, 1998 at Wolf Trap's Filene Center, Vienna, VA. They performed on the H.O.R.D.E. tour in Charlotte, NC, and opened for the Allman Brothers Band in Buffalo and Toronto. The band signed a recording contract with Giant Records, a joint venture with Warner Brothers Records.
