The JCGB is one of the most authentic, versatile and compelling bands in the Midwest. Their music is roots rock, infused with an outlaw flair.
The band has just released four albums. Most recently, “Great Spirit”!
The band consists of Steve & Michaela McLain handling vocals and acoustic guitar, Kevin Riley on harmonica, James Moore on Bass, Eric Hurlin on Keys, and David Hurlin tightening it all up on the drums! Special guests visit them on stage frequently.
Front man Steve McLain has one of those rare voices that never misses the mark, and a good-vibes personality that is humble, confident and electrifying.
Whether cutting loose at an all-day outdoor music festival, a college, a bike rally, a main stage or a tavern-this is a band guaranteed to lift your spirits and get your feet moving with their irrepressibly tight musicianship and down-home esprit de corps.
Live shows are a powerful mix of original songs with strategically placed Green Band flavored Rock, Blues, Folk, Country and Reggae classics. The band incorporates the themes of love, pride, community, and conservation in their creative mix. It is music played from the heart that goes straight to the heart; that makes you feel good, happy to be alive, elevates your soul and makes you want to come back for more.
