Lazy Mike & The Rockin Recliners at Lorenzo's Cafe
These guys work the rocking side of Chicago blues with a touch of western swing. They are smart and fun with enough of a light touch to keep everything interesting. A Nanaimo based four-piece with “Lazy” Mike Mallon on vocals and harp, Carson “McKinley Slim” Mallon on guitar, Brian Whitty on bass, and Evan Matthiessen on drums. Muddy Waters given name was McKinley, which tells you where they locate their musical influences. "Lazy Mike and the Rockin' Recliners" are one of the hardest workin' Blues Bands on Vancouver Island. These guys always bring their "A" game to the shows they play and have had the crowds jumpin' every time that I have had the pleasure of seeing one of their shows. Good solid musicians who know how to entertain an audience with high energy, enthusiasm, and an honest passion for the music they play. One of the hightlights of the "2012 Powell River Blues Festival!"
