McGee spent his early years, touring colleges throughout the Mid-Atlantic & Southeast. He had long envisioned forming a band that could carry out his ideal lineup. It was all about the songs, but backed by three part harmonies, acoustic and electric guitars, percussion along with drum set and of course melodic bass and keyboards—-all the elements that made those classic albums come alive on wax and stage.
Pat McGee Band finally formed in 1996 and immediately hit the road, touring relentlessly for the better part of 10 years, in one stretch doing 98 shows in 103 days. The band signed to Warner Brothers in 1999 after their rabid fanbase devoured over 100,000 copies of their first 3 Independent releases. Along the way, McGee fulfilled lifelong dreams of touring with the bands he grew up worshipping…Allmans, James Taylor, The Who and many more. PMB was invited to perform for President Clinton, toured overseas with USO as well as recently to The Middle East and Africa.
