Michael Shynes - Varsity Theater 04/12/19


I met Mike many years ago. We were in two different bands competing in the now defunct Taste of MN Battle of the Bands. Neither of our bands came out on top of the battle, but we did all enjoy some laughs. That connection lead to many shared shows, shared stages, and intermingling of bands. More importantly, it created a long lasting friendship.

You can talk to anyone who has met Mike at one of his shows, it is likely that the first thing they will mention (after how great his live performances are) is his sincerity. I’ve always been amazed at his ability to remember a name, a face, and a story. That combined with the authenticity of his lyrics and music is what leaves listeners with wanting more and steadily grows his group of dedicated show-goers.

Mike recently had a show to support his new record, The Current The River and The Undertow, at Varsity Theater in Minneapolis. This post includes images from the show, but they are best viewed while listening which you can do at www.michaelshynes.com, or you can find his music on Spotify, iTunes, or even Youtube.
