He melds Blues, Honky Tonk, Zydeco, Swamp Pop, Punk, New Wave, Psychedelic Rock and World Music influences into a masterful musical style that is eclectic and versatile.

Mike has played with the Bluestalkers a fixture on the CT Blues scene, toured locally and nationally with the Zydeco Hogs, and has backed James Montgomery, Guitar Gabriel, and LA Jones. During the 80's he played with, Plastic Money, Starkweather, Blonde Furniture, and the Lickorz. His current band King Cake plays a swampy mix of Blues, Honky Tonk, and New Orleans style funk.
