Bass player currently gigging with country & Americana artist Ledfoot Larry and at Grace Lutheran Church in Andover MN. Past experience includes Mick Sterling's Van Morrison Tribute "Beautiful Vision", touring bands Lipp Service & Krush, and Minnesota blues icons Inside Straight.

Vocalist currently gigging with country & Americana artist Ledfoot Larry. Past experience includes lead vocalist for American Pop Music Experiment, Krush, and The Usual Suspects.

Keyboardist currently playing with Alt-Folk/Pop band Michael & Sara. In the past I have performed as organist for blues/rock recording artists Whiskey & Prozac, local variety band Big Night Out, and local rock band Face First.
"Michael is a fabulous bassist and vocalist with an ear that allows him to write interesting and fitting parts for original music with a strong sense of where a song should go. He's a professional-level musician with an excellent work ethic and ability to take an ensemble to the next level whether it be an original project or cover". -Lorenzo "Ledfoot Larry" Michelutti
"Micheal is a consummate musician who not only has a vast knowledge of his primary instrument (bass) but many others as well. Having assisted on production of his last recording I saw first hand his chart writing ablity for horns, strings and just about anything else. He knows what he wants to hear..."
