A longtime veteran of North East Ohio’s Club Scene. He has played bass guitar and ran sound for Cleveland’s highest profile bands. A chance meeting with Poppa D years ago, while filling in with a country band seared Michael’s abilities into D’s mind. The two were reunited by another random chance when D answered a wanted ad in the local Back Pages. Michael’s extensive knowledge of music had him instantly locking into EZ Ed’s grooves. To hear him play with The Aggravators You would assume he has played with the band for many years. One could argue Fate brought Michael to The Aggravators.
