Pat Who?



George Patrick "Pat" McJimsey
March 21st to April 1st 2004

Vocalist, guitar player and songwriter Pat McJimsey had been heading up R&B bands since the age of seventeen. From his humble beginnings in his mother's garage in Wichita, Ks., with a band called "The Velvet Honey", he later went on to form groups such as the "Bear Valley Blues Band", "The Entire British Navy" and a more recent Wichita favorite "4 Brothers".

Pat McJimsey packed them in whenever he appeared onstage. In fact, the "The Pat McJimsey Band" you will hear on this "I Dig Girls" CD, kept fans coming back night after night, at the Wichita, Ks hotspot My Brothers Place, four nights a week for six years running.

Throughout his career Pat had the privilege of touring with many well-known groups including John Manning, Mike Finnegan and Jerry Wood, Leon Russell and Freddy King. He also shared the stage, as an opening act, for a wide variety of artists such as "Canned Heat" and "Spyro Gyra".

Before his untimely death from a heart attack on April 1st, 2004, Pat was still tearing it up as a "guitar slinger" thoughout the Midwest, although he had settled down a bit, preferring to stay closer to home. He performed with many different Wichita area jazz groups large and small as a featured vocalist at venues such as the venerable Cotillion Ballroom, Botanica and the Wichita River Festival.

His flexible schedule had been well earned by years of hard work on the road. It afforded him the luxury of spending more time at home with his wife Barbara and two children Ben and Lexie, but he had stated his touring days weren't over. Another all blues album was in the works when he died but may still be released later this year.

The "I Dig Girls" album, recorded by "The Pat McJimsey Band" at Colorado's famed Caribou Ranch in 1983-84, was originally released only on audio cassette. It has been meticulously re-mastered for CD release.
