MIKE BROWN BIO

As I grew up I was given an opportunity to play in church and at age of 13, I joined the main church band by the time I was 17 I had
the opportunity to experience my first tour with the inspirational choir. In the 1980’s I attended college I met up and coming musicians
such as Roachford who played a regular gig with his uncle and he invited me to sit in. We formed a band together and eventually got
signed to CBS Records as the Band Roachford performing semi-rock/blues music. The first album produced went GOLD.
