is a seasoned veteran performer of over 30 years. He started in 1982 with his band “The Briefcase Blues Band” in Sacramento, CA playing local clubs and special events. The act went on the Nevada casino circuit in 1985 and he eventually ended up as a featured performer in the Las Vegas based show “Legends In Concert” portraying “Jake Blues” of “The Blues Brothers”.
Michael traveled all over the world and the US performing in many venues with “Legends” and with his own band. In 2006 he produced his own show “The Bluesdaddy Rockin’ Soul Revue” in Branson, MO.
He has shared the stage with many top acts over the years including The Original Coasters, Bobby Day, Al Wilson, Lesley Gore, Jack Mack and the Heart Attack, The Beatles tribute “Rain”, Paul Revere and the Raiders plus current and former members of the group Tower of Power.
Michael’s goal is to provide a great musical experience and the essence of the character “Jake Blues” capturing the Comedic elements, and the Soul, R&B, Funk, and Rock and Roll that made the “Blues Brothers” such a fun and musically diverse act.
Michael has always made it his number one priority to make sure the audience has a great time!
