"WORTH THE DRIVE: If you missed the notice, the Mansion at Strathmore throws the best reason to trek out of the district with its Friday Night Eclectic showcase..." ~ The Washington Post Express
The Mansion at Strathmore is your new first stop of the weekend with the all-new Friday Night Eclectic series. Kick off your weekend with the best local live music the metro area has to offer. Indie rock, hip-hip, electronica, salsa, go-go, and funk blast through conventional ideas of art, lounge and life outside the beltway.
Since leaving New Orleans’ Dirty Dozen Brass Band in 2006 to make a name of his own, Jamie McLean has been electrifying crowds around the country with his original brand of americana rock. McLean and his burning band have been hitting the highways with the likes of Blues Traveler, Gov’t Mule, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, North Mississippi Allstars, Marc Broussard and many others. His blazing guitar work mixed with soulful vocals and strong songwriting skills have set him apart from being a one-trick pony front man. Now he brings his unique style to Strathmore's hot new series Friday Night Eclectic just in time to host the CD release party for "Completely" Jamie's latest album.
Visual artist Virginia Sasser will also be presenting her work.
