ABOUT

My name is Mike and I live in Chicago. I am very interested in making the act of playing music a life long career. I am more than eager to tour if the opportunity arises.

I have taken my roots in Jazz, Big Band, and Blues and applied them to Rock and Rock/Blues style music. While Rock, Heavy Rock, Alternative, and Blues are my preferred genres I am able to play music in just about any genre. I listen to just about every genre of music as well.

I have had some music schooling but I primarily play by ear and feel - I am very good at feeling out rhythms and tempos. Improv is my thing!

THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT ME IS VIA TEXT MESSAGE (7738173930).
