Mike has been passionate about playing guitar since he was 9 and was influenced early on by artists from the 50s like Elvis, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley and the Comets, and others. Over time though, his realm of influences expanded to include heavier acts such as: Led Zeppelin, Ozzy, Metallica, and other 80ís metal Bands. Mike also went through a lighter period recognizing the virtuosity of guys like Stanley Jordan, Preston Reed, Jorma Koukanen, Woody Mann, Blind Blake, Rev Gary Davis and other jazz and acoustic players. Currently Mike delves into many of the recognized blues greats such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Gibbons, as well as some classic alternative and current mainstream acts. In addition to Blue Moon and a couple other bands, Mike has played with the worship team at FBC McKinney consistently over the past 8 years. Outside of music Mike enjoys classic cars, water sports, and spending time with his wife, little girl Kendall, and their dog Lucky.
