  1. Mike,

    Seth McNally with M.E. productions here. I’m putting together a classic chicago blues night in Rockport at the Shalin Liu…with Montgomery and Fly…interested in having you on as a third to round out a kick ass trio… will you have already left for Europe? Would you consider playing this gig? Would need to know very soon if you are interested. look forward to working with you.

    1. Sorry about the wait, Seth! I’m not getting notifications on my WordPress comments, as far as I can tell, so I didn’t even see this until now. If there is still something in the works, let me know.

  2. Mike, This is Tony from Johnny D’s jam sessions. I’m in the UK now. I haven’t seen any UK dates on your European tour calendar, that’s too bad. Hope to see u here sometime soon.

  3. Hello Mike,

    this is Ferry from Vienna/Austria.
    I had the pleasure to see your show last Friday at the “Reigen” in Vienna. I’d like to give you a big hand also on this way. (I was the guy, whom you kindly signed the CD in the break … long hair, asking what’s the secret behind your awesome playing – … practice ! you said 🙂 )
    Man, I ‘m in love with the Blues and specially I’m a fan of the guitarists art in that music category. (I could have listend to your soloing all night !!)
    But the “Heros” grew older and older (Hey, B.B.King is about 85 – and god bless him to give him 100more … !) and I thought youth in our days don’t have the patience to practice one thing so much, to get so perfect. And playing the blues! They are only interested in Playstations and Hip-Hop. But thats not true – you disproved it !
    So, for me, it’s great to see such a talented young man like you, who absorbed so many kind of famous styles, (Steve Ray, B.B., Chuck Berry …) and not only to pay hommage on it, but to build his own style on that “basics”.
    I’m playing guitar just for a few years – but life’s too short, to get that good enough 😉
    So keep up that great work and make guys like me happy, when we have the chance to meet and listen to such a “monster-advocate of the blues” !!

    Hope to meet you in Vienna again soon

  4. When are you coming to Bloomington, Indianapolis, Mishawaka Indiana in 2011 or 2012?

  5. Hey Mike, don’t forget to put Southern Spain on your next Europe tour. 2012 we hope ! Last time I saw you was at the Moulin Blues Festival 1996 ! – Good Luck, Darren, English fan in Spain

  6. saw you play many years ago at the house of blues in boston it was a wow experince when you walkend out into the middle of the street playing your guitar. do you ever play in the nh area ??
