Mike regularly plays out in the Michigan/Ohio area, performing his selection of originals and cover songs ranging from Motown to Miley, with a particular emphasis on the 1980s. He has played most notably at the Old West End Festival (Toledo OH), the Tiffin Music & Art Fest (Tiffin OH), the Glass Swamp Music Fest (Toledo OH), and A Dam Good Time (Grand Rapids OH), as well as at a selection of fine music venues throughout the area.
His songs are for fans of Counting Crows, Foo Fighters, and Glorious Sons. Contact TheMikeDuBose at email@example.com .
In addition to playing his own stuff, Mike is also an experienced musician. As a kid, he was classically trained on violin but gave it up because it was hard to play AC/DC on the thing. He has played very heavily distorted guitar in several very loud bands (see Other Endeavors for samples). He is also open to other noise-making possibilities.
But he is about more than just music! Mike is a father, a husband, a clinically depressed mentally ill guy, a pretty decent cook, an amateur photographer, a college teacher, a Doctor of Philosophy, a former Media Studies scholar (widely published but still a failure), a former pizza place co-manager, a nerd, a snappy dresser, a social outcast, a published (one time) poet, a vegetarian, and a science fiction fan. He was also on a radio show once. Despite this varied resume, Mike has never really hit the big time or achieved fame...or even infamy, for that matter.
Still, he has hope.
