Sax player from north west U.K.

Based in Southport

'Having been brought up in a musical environment, it was inevitable that Mike would make a name for himself as an artist in his own right, but not without earning his spots first.

Mike has paid his dues as a sideman over the last fifteen years with the likes of Craig David, Heather Small, Elkie Brooks, Kid Creole, ABC and Sandi Thom.

Mike was asked to head up the international brand CREAM as their sax player for the CREAM CLASSICS tour in 2016 with K-Klass and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

A musician from the age of 10, he went onto study at LIPA and his diverse and wide ranging experience have given him the kudos amongst his peers and become one of the most sought after sax players in the industry.

Mike has three of his own albums out on the 'playing with sound' record label under his brand name of @gingertunes'

“Hi Mike, We just wanted to say an enormous Thank you for playing at our wedding at West Tower. Having not heard you play in person beforehand it was a big risk but one that definitely payed off. We absolutely loved everything you played and have had so many compliments off guests who agreed that it was the best drinks reception imaginable.

Over the past near thirty years, Cream has dominated Liverpool nightlife. From its imperious weekly reign of the nineties up to its present-day incarnation of global superbrand, the goliath has evolved and towered above others, managing to remain relevant to a huge audience of clubbers from every generation of that three-decade dominance.
