The Mike McKenzie Band is one of the most well known bands in North East Lousiana. A consistent crowd favorite, they are recipients of multiple awards, including Best Cover Band by the NELA Music Awards for 2015 and 2016 and an amazing five time 'Best Of The Delta' award winner for Best Cover Band from Delta Style Magazine.
Covering a broad range of music and styles, the band is always ready to cater to the audience and keep the party going.
I grew up in a musical family. My mom sang in church and my dad sang everywhere. I took up guitar at the age of twelve, listening to all styles of music. That’s what I like to play. One style really limits you.
Learning from my dad and all his friends, their style was mostly country. Although, nowadays I realize my dad was a rocker for his era and I myself am partial to upbeat music. I started playing in my dad’s band when I was sixteen. Began singing in the band when I was around twenty two mainly so I could play the songs I thought people wanted to hear.
I’ve had the pleasure of opening for acts like T Graham Brown, John Conlee, Con Hunlee, Bryan White, Tim McGraw at Swampstock and several others. We have backed up artists like Percy Sledge and John Wesley Ryles. I want to thank everyone who has supported me through the years and look forward to many more.
