ABOUT

My Name is Michael and I have been playing off & on for over 25+ years. Back up vocals OK. I can play most any genre and but feel that song selection is key to a band's success. That is to say that most bands I have been in tend to pick their song list based on what they have played before, or can play easily. I feel the most successful bands will write their own style, or play the songs that really define their target genre. Vocals don't need to clone the original, or be Perfect, quality vocals will work, and can reflect the persona of the group, but the rhythm and timing needs to be on Target, That's my job! If you need to stick to easy songs, club owners can use their juke box, and don't need a band at all, or you can just be Another Band. For me, the music should to be quality material to be interesting fun to play, and give the audience a Great Time! I get bored with Mustang Sally, Cocaine, and Margaritaville. If that is your goal, there are lots of bands that can accommodate your playlist.
