The group just finished a successful run with special guest keyboardist Steve Molitz from Particle and Phil Lesh and Friends. Other artists JMB has played with include, Jen Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), Allie Kral (Yonder Mountain String Band), Nick Gerlach (Cosby Sweater), Joe Hettinga (Digital Tape Machine / Strange Arrangement), Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band) – and many more.

Always at the forefront of guitar innovation utilizing synthesizers and computers to control images with his guitar. He has been featured in many publications including Guitar Player magazine!
Wanting to get tack to the basics Mikial released his second CD “Fireside Philosopher” in 2012. Its an eclectic mix of witty lyrics, sophisticated acoustic guitar and driving hand percussion. This self produced solo album is available online at Itunes Amazon and CD Baby.
Currently Mikial is doing something new and different. He calls it “slaptappin jamlooping!” using technics he discovered while working on his acoustic album. His live shows currently feature him on-stage accompanied by percussion and vocals. He plays guitar like no one else, using funk bass and flamenco styles he creates backing loops in the moment, building and improvising as he goes, pulling off amazing fusion tapestries, one might call it ADM(acoustic dance music) a unique performer with a world beat fusion sound and is inspiring audiences everywhere with his impassioned live performances.
