Biography -- Groovy Tuesday Members

Mike

As a boy growing up in the Bronx; I was always interested in popular music. I loved to sing and recall my father using his reel-to-reel to record me singing "Mack the Knife" at the age of 4. I began taking guitar lessons when I was 9 years old. Unfortunately I gave it up after a year or so, but never lost interest in performing.

Over the years my favorite performers have been Steely Dan, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers.

I was a lead vocalist in several short-lived Orange County bands in the mid 70s and late 80s. Then, about 10 years ago, I began playing guitar with a friend and shortly thereafter we formed the band, Groovy Tuesday. This was the first occasion that I’ve had the opportunity to perform as a rhythm guitarist and vocalist, which has been very gratifying.
