Mike is back on the road with his solo outfit, featuring Scott Murawski on guitar, Craig Myers on percussion, Tom Cleary on keyboards and Todd Isler on Drums. The band kicked off a brief Northeast tour this weekend with a Friday night tour opener at Revolution Hall in Troy, NY and a Saturday night stop at Toad’s Place in New Haven. By all account, the band is really gelling, the shows have been rocking, and Mike has been jumping up and down and getting down, not just the standard head-bob action.
The tour runs through next Sunday with stops in Philly, Baltimore, Northampton and more. Full tour dates and ticket info is over at Mike’s official site. Also, be sure to check out a new track the band released from its tour rehearsals as well as a Rolling Stone article on Gordon… Check out setlists, pics, and downloads below.
