For a musical style that has historically placed so much weight on lineage, the passing of more and more of the old masters pose a dire question: What is the future of the blues and who will lead the charge? Well, for blues fans in the Northeast United States, that question is routinely answered every night Mikey Junior hits the stage. Mikey Junior

His infectious personality and absolute command of his medium leave little doubt the blues is in good hands.  Self-taught from his impressive collection of blues vinyl, Mikey was a full-time musician before he even graduated high-school.  By the time he was in his early twenties, seasoned players were taking notice and it wasn’t long before one blues society after another scrambled to get him to their stage. Before long, Mikey was a staple of the summer blues circuit on the east coast.  His most recent release, Blues in the Barn: Volume 1 reveals a young blues artist at the top of his game, telling stories we can all relate to while drawing us deep into the roots of blues music via his utter mastery of the diatonic and chromatic harmonicas.  

Legends aren’t born, they’re made.  And sometimes...well, sometimes they make themselves.

Busker Incognito & The SHOW is the name for the band as well as the name for the concert presentation.  Serving up blues-based, original music rooted in the Delta style, yet delivered via an original blend of contemporary lamentations of the human experience, bawdy double entendre expressions of human sexuality, epic outbursts of the blues' baby rock & roll and more, Busker Incognito & the SHOW will both entertain you and get your mojo workin'!
