The Jamie McLean Band rocked the Wharf Friday night with a 90-minute, gritty soul performance at Pearl Street Warehouse. Frontman Jamie McLean, backed by bassist Chris Anderson and drummer Brian Griffin, took the stage with a pair of Memphis-style hollow-body electric guitars (cherry-color 1969 Gibson ES-335 and natural-color Heritage H-535), and he had the crowd on its feet dancing and reveling on the venue’s checkerboard dance floor from the very first note.
