An eclectic mix of genres, all your favourite hits with a saxy twist!
Rounding out our season we are excited to have the Mike Albert Band on Saturday, May 12 at our Milton location. An eclectic mix of genres, all your favourite hits with a saxy twist!
Mike Albert has been a fixture in the Hamilton / Halton music scene for over 20 years. Although he is primarily known for his saxophone abilities, Mike is a multi-instrumentalist and live audio engineer. He can often be seen behind the sound board at many local festivals, concerts, and clubs.
After graduating from the Humber College Jazz Performance program, Mike quickly became one of the areas first call saxophone players. As a freelancing musician, he can be seen performing with a variety of artists in many different genres of music. Pink Floyd tribute shows, Motown and R&B shows and Pop/Rock are his forte, however, you may still occasionally catch him playing small combo jazz as well as big band.
His versatility in style and instrumentation has made him a valuable asset to many local artists.
When not playing the saxophone, Mike can be found sitting in as a bassist, guitarist or drummer and often running the sound board at the same time.
Acoustic Blend Cafe provides an opportunity for local performers to be in the spotlight instead of being in the background at a pub, bar or restaurant. Each concert begins with Open Mic encouraging everyone from complete beginners to seasoned pros to get up and perform. It’s all about learning and growing with music. Some feature performers have been booked through our open mics.
We set up the room to be like a big living room with comfortable seating, coffee tables with matching tablecloths and candle-light. Don’t be shy, come out for a nice evening, bring a friend or three. WIne, beer and, spirits available.
