Mike Elrington with Bill Barber

  • Old Castlemaine Gaol 36 - 48 Bowden Street Castlemaine, VIC, 3450 Australia (map)

A gifted singer songwriter with incredible guitar skills.

Standing at almost two metres tall, delivering his signature, gut-wrenching vocals like an instrument all on its own, very few people forget a performance by Mike Elrington.

An artist who in just the last 6 months, has taken out the prestigious singer/songwriter of the year at the 2016 Australian Independent Music Awards in Sydney, and who was fortunate enough to not only open up for American rock icons The Doobie Brothers, but also be invited up on stage to sing with the band on their hit “Listen To The Music” in front of a sold-out Tivoli Theatre in Brisbane.

The commitment to his live shows and the well-earned reputation for leaving nothing behind but sweat has seen him invited to perform at some of Australia’s finest festivals, including the iconic Byron Bay BluesFest, Bendigo, Sydney Blues and Roots Festivals & Blues on Broadbeach to name but a few.

Self-managed independent tours to the US have seen him grace stages of some of the most prestigious blues clubs in America, including Biscuits & Blues in San Francisco, JJ’s Blues in San Jose, The Cat Club on Hollwood’s Sunset Strip, Los Angeles, The Sand Dollar Blues Lounge in Las Vegas & Sullivan Hall in New York City to name a few.

“An eclectic, passionate & relentless mix of acoustic blues, rock & folk. This man plays & sings like wildfire.”  - Las Vegas Weekly
