Currently booking solo performances (acoustic guitar and vocals) and with my band for corporate events, weddings, receptions, cocktail and holiday parties, grand openings and concert dates. With a repertoire ranging from James Taylor to Jason Miraz, from Eric Clapton to The Frey and from Waylon Jennings to Johnny Cash, Mike has performed for virtually a who's who of the Fortune 500 as well as countless weddings and private functions over the course of his career.
Mike is happy to learn and perform songs of your choice for your wedding ceremony.
Mike released 2 Cds in the nineties to critical acclaim (favorable reviews in "Dirty Linen," "Sing Out" and several other national publications)and started to have other artists record his songs which eventually led to a passion for recording. Also, during this period of time Mike got his first b bender telecaster which would eventually lead him to write and record a ground breaking CD called "Mescal Mary and Other B and G Bender Guitar Instrumentals" and received notable reviews in many national publications including "20th Century Guitar."
The 1990's found Mike freelancing with various bands as well as playing guitar for country stars that would come through town including Hank Thompson, Skip Ewing and John McKuen.
Currently, you can find Mike performing with his own band as well as doing solo performances throughout the country most recently opening for Jo Dee Messina at the Celebrity Theater and performing with Jessi Colter on NPR's Michael Feldman's "Whaddaya Know."
