Mike was brought up by the cold waters of Derwent river in Tasmania, where he cut his teeth playing music in all manner of musical ensembles from glam rock outfits to acoustic folk duos. After spending a few years in Melbourne performing and touring with bands such as The Wishing Welland Impregnito and studying contemporary music at NMIT, he moved to the Top End. Connecting with an old Tasmanian friend and former band mate James Gough the pair noticed a paucity of touring acts in the NT and created the company NOOK Events to bring boutique performers to Darwin. After promoting many sell-out shows featuring national and international artists NOOK are looking forward to bringing more big names to the Territory and continue to support local artists as well. Mike also plays in the Darwin alternative rock band Green Stone Garden who released their debut EP on May 15, 2013.
