Performing at 11am to 12:00pm
I have been playing guitar since I was five years old and have since learned to also play the harmonica and piano.
My band is Mike Imbasciani & his BluezRockerz
My musical inspiration comes from Eric Clapton, SRV, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Brian Setzer,Robert Johnson, and Muddy Waters. The genres I perform include Blues, Classic Rock, Folk & Rock-A-Billy.
I began performing in public locally in Punta Gorda in the Gilchrist Park “Guitar Army”. Since then I have expanded and performed in many areas of Florida, Georgia and Tennessee including Nashville, Memphis, Atlanta, Ybor City, Orlando, Clearwater Beach, Fort Myers,Sarasota, Fort Myers Beach, Naples and Miami.
I have been fortunate enough to have some great mentors including: Lucky Elden, Mike Hovencamp,Elber Perlaza, Dawn Metzner, Danny Shepard, Denise Young, Susan Neikamp, and Sandy Poltarak.
