Inspired by an eclectic mix of influences like The Meters, The Band and The Flaming Lips, members Jason Ott, Jake Huffman, Justin Berger, and Atticus Kelly combine their songwriting skills with extended improvisations and instrumental ingenuity.
Taking a page from their jam band forefathers, McLovins always try to keep their audiences guessing at what’s to come. Their eclectic setlists and individual musical personas define the band’s live shows. Hailing from Hartford, Connecticut, McLovins have appeared at Gathering of The Vibes, Mountain Jam, The Peach Festival and the legendary Nateva Music Festival, as well as many acclaimed venues across the country. They have also performed with some of the most influential artists on the scene, including Buddy Guy, George Porter, Jr. and Oteil Burbridge.
Recently the band cut an album with Emmy, Grammy, and Tony award winning producer Bill Sherman in New York City’s East Village. The album was released this October and the band is currently on tour. The band continues to evolve, bringing their distinctive, jam-rock productions across the country. Every tour brings a unique energy.
The Blueberry Jam Sessions will be held on Weeks Bay Plantation in Fairhope, Alabama on November 22nd at 2:00PM. W are thrilled to welcome The Revivalists as our headlining act, as well as Earphunk, McLovins, and Maradeen. The afternoon/evening will offer a wide variety of musical talent while crossing into multiple genres, creating the feel of a one-day music festival. The event will benefit the WISP Foundation, aimed at raising awareness for safe and organic farming.
Weeks Bay Plantation will be open for camping at 3:00 PM on Saturday, November 21st for those wanting to spend Saturday and/or Sunday night camping on the farm.
