Texas Heat meets California Cool
Mighty Mike Schermer was a fixture on the Bay Area blues scene for over 20 years when he relocated to Austin TX in 2009 and joined the touring band of swamp-boogie piano legend Marcia Ball. He had already carved out a solid solo career...with four critically acclaimed albums, an award winning single and thousands of performances at festivals and nightclubs the world over. He was also the “go to guy” sideman for such heavyweights as Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur, Angela Strehli, Bonnie Raitt, Howard Tate, Charlie Musselwhite, Sista Monica, Shana Morrison and many, many more.
Oh yes...we may be judged by the company we keep, but when the spotlight shines a solo artist also must be able to bring the goods all on his own.
