Mike met his all time favorite actor Bill Murray in Newport, RI after a gig in July! Then in November, he got to see drumming legend Dave Weckl perform a great drum clinic at the Drum Center of Portsmouth, NH.

 

Mike will be leading a stellar group of musicians on Dec 7 at the Spire Center in Plymouth, MA as part of their lobby jazz series. The band will feature the legendary George Garzone on sax, Jay Azzolina on guitar and David Zinno on bass. Visit spirecenter.org to get tickets for only $15! This promises to be a night to remember!

Great stuff for drummers and all musicians!

The Mike Casano Fusion live album Go Anywhere is available now!

It's a raw and in your face live gig recording pulling no punches and featuring a smokin lineup of unbelievable players:

Dino Govoni tenor sax, Pete Levesque alto sax, Rusty Hughes keys, Ethan Gutzeit guitar, Tom Appleman bass, Mike Casano drums.

Mike wrote two songs for this project, "Juneson's Ravin' Beauty"

and the latin flavored "Mije". The album also features songs by John Coltrane, Tony Williams, Thelonious Monk and John Patitucci.

 

 

Mike & Joe's Big Band featured the legendary vibraphonist Mike Mainieri live in concert in October 2019, burning on classic Steps Ahead tunes such as "Beirut", "Trains" and "Safari". They were also joined by saxophonist George Garzone for Mainieri's original song "Dee Minor". It was an epic night of music to be sure!

In September 2018, Mike & Joe's Big Band produced a hugely successful show featuring the legendary trumpeter Randy Brecker. The band was smokin', all night and delivered a top notch, high energy show to a theater packed full with enthusiastic music fans! The group hit especially high notes on the songs "Straphangin" and "Sponge" from the Brecker Brothers songbook, and they also played a spirited rendition of Randy's original tune "Shanghigh".

MY KEY C "We Got This" now available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Pandora, Apple Music, Google Music, etc! Mike describes the song as playeristic funky neo soul. This is the follow up single to 2011's "Play That Game"

Mike has been working with rapper Grover (Howard Stern Show) and his band Grover & CGI since 2007. The band has released numerous videos on YouTube and they were featured on the Howard Stern News several times. The group wrote and played on the theme song for the Ronnie Mund Block Party, which was played at events all over the country, including Las Vegas. They also did the theme song for the Planet Mikey Show on sports radio in the New England area.
