Mike started playing drums at the age of six. Coming from a very musical family, he had a lot of support behind him. After playing in band in grade school, Mike formed his first band at age twelve. Since then Mike has played in several bands over the last twenty-five years; some were original, although most were cover bands. Mike’s style mostly comes from great rock drummers, such as John Bonham and Stuart Copeland, but he has some jazz influences as well.
