ABOUT

my name's mike. i've played in and out of bands since i was 15. i have never taken guitar lessons, but i pick up things very quickly and am knowledgeable of music terminology. i've recently disbanded from my last band Brite Spot (www.myspace.com/britespotcollective) and is starting another group. i've had the privilege to open up for the aggrolites, john brown's body, bad manners, see spot, and the chris murray combo and have shared stages with other local greats.

i'm an easy going guy who doesn't look for trouble, and i'm not afraid to voice my opinions about things band related. i don't flake and i don't mess around at practice, but i do look for a good time.
