ABOUT

Hello, my name is Michael. I’m 45 and live in Phoenix, AZ with my wife and 2 cats. I was a lead singer in a blues/classic rock band based in Boston in my early 20s (I’d rate Though I noodled around with a guitar then, I began seriously studying the instrument about a year ago.

I’m looking for a band to gig with locally that plays maybe 1-2 shows a week. I also want to do some collaborative songwriting and put out an album or two. For now, though, I just want to jam with some people and have some fun.
