Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners is a harp-driven blues band with “Lazy” Mike Mallon on harp and vocals, Kyle Guineau on guitar, Bob “Blue” Berry on bass guitar and vocals, and Ryan “Martha” Connell on drums. From Chicago to the West Coast and all points in between, they’ve been rockin’ Vancouver Island for a few years now. They play at festivals and fairs, plus licensed bars and clubs such as the Red Martini Grill and Patricia Hotel in Nanaimo, the Westward Pub and Lorne Hotel in Comox, and the Candy Bar in Port Alberni.
Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners are responsible for a whole mess of originals. After the success of their first compact disc, Live at the Blues Underground, recorded at the Nanaimo Blues Society’s Blues Underground, the band is about to release their second compact disc titled Life’s Been Pretty Good, another great collection of original rockin’ blues tunes. This high energy blues band has a knack of getting their audience’s blood boiling, young and old! From slow to fast, traditional blues to funky, there’s enough on their plate to please any musical appetite! Catch them this Saturday, May 15, 2010, at the Red Martini here in Nanaimo.
