Mike has been with Stuff for about 5 years now but has been playing bass and singing with bands for 40 years.  He started in 1969 with a little country band in Panama, Iowa, close to the farm where he was born and raised.  Since that time he has performed with numerous bands, among them  Nora Porter & the Prophets, Dreamland Express, The Martin Family Show, Syncopated Swing, and currently with Stan Galli & Stuff.  “I really enjoy the variety of the Stuff band. I love doing some of the old swing and standard tunes, but also love singing songs from the 50’s and 60’s.”  This band has been a great chance for Mike to play and sing a large variety of material.  Mike also directs and sings in the Praise Band in his local church, The First United Methodist Church in Blair, NE where he has lived since 1989. The Praise Band is called “Hand In Hand” and was created in 1995.  He has always loved to perform but never made it his main occupation. Mike always says he needed to have a “real” job and keep the music as a hobby. It has been a very busy hobby over the years and he is looking forward to many more.
