Little Mike began his musical career in the 80's in New York City...and quickly became a sought after performer with his band the Tornadoes...Mike and band have been wowing audiences for many years...they get better everytime I hear them...here's a clip off of Mike's 2016 release "How Long"
Here's a link to Stephen Kampa playing with Robert "Top" Thomas and his band. We are lucky to have Stephen play for us at this years' show!
After leading a series of bands as a teenager, Mike formed the Tornadoes in 1978. At age 22, Mike was leading one of the busiest and toughest blues bands in New York City. Whenever a visiting blues artist came to town and needed a band, Little Mike and the Tornadoes usually got the call, backing artists such as Walter Horton, Otis Rush, Bo Diddley, Lightning Hopkins, and Big Mama Thornton. Mike’s reputation led to the band’s touring as the backing unit for blues legends such as Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, and Jimmy Rogers.
These internationally acclaimed players will light the stage on fire on October 21 st! We are proud to have two of the best harp players and performers anywhere to play for everyone at the show!!
