The Mike MacKenzie Band L-R: Kurtis Downs (Guitar), Mike MacKenzie (Vocals/Guitar), James Wise (Drums) and Thomas Hart (Bass).
Mike’s experience is shaped through being in multiple rock bands, studying at jazz college, attending blues jams, writing, recording, teaching guitar and plenty of live performances. Currently the Mike MacKenzie Band maintains a steady itinerary of shows all over Western Canada and he is at work on his second album. His first release “Natural Causes” is a collection of eleven original songs he put out in 2014 and offers an eventful listening experience through several veins of rock. Being called “a richly diverse selection but always interesting” by Classic Rock Society and “a substantial level of songwriting craft” by Blues Matters Magazine, Mike was able to create something he says he is happy with but plans to build upon and enhance. He is enjoying the process of recording his new album and is excited to unveil it sometime this coming winter.
