Magic Mike was first introduced to the bass guitar as a child in the late 70’s when he and a friend found an old Fender Jazz Bass in his “bassment” (sic). As Mike picked it up, his friend said “Go ahead. Lay down a funky bass line.” As if it was magic, Mike played that funky bass as if it was an extension of both of his arms! And as they put it, the rest was history.
Mike has also played in Dayton’s own Three Barrel but now he’s holding down those chest rattling lows as the resident Funk Master bassist of Full Frontal. During shows, you’ll find Magic Mike in the pocket of that groovy beat.
