Mike McCurdy - Keys/Synth/Backup Vocals
Mike McCurdy, a.k.a. “Irishmac”, has been behind his keyboards for over 40 years. Born in Washington D.C., he was kidnapped at a young age by a group of rogue Leprechauns belonging to a religious sect built around R&B music. Raised in an Irish Pub, he spent his days listening to B.B., Otis, Sam, J.B. and a host of others, and his nights trying to pay them the homage they were due. To keep himself fed and in vinyl he played throughout the Metro D.C. and Baltimore areas with many successful bands including Reflections, Rainbow, Rio, Goldrush, and Superstition.
Since moving to South Florida in 1985 he has continued to provide his unique style of driving R&B keyboards and soulful vocals for the acclaimed Rolling Stones Tribute Show "Let's Spend The Night Together", Moonlight Thief, The Lu White Band, Johnny Lyles Jr., Edj, Nightwatch, Flashback, Back In Time, Fatt Soop and Hot Wax. Happily crankin' out the tunes with Business As Usual he's punching out good time dance music. He swears, that contrary to rumor and gossip, he no longer hangs with the Leprechauns but, he will admit, after a taste or two of the Dew, to tearing up every time he hears “Danny Boy”!
