You never know who is going to show up at a Michael Nitro gig or who he will be on stage with next. In June, out of the blue, the call came in from Sammy Hagar asking Michael and his band to join him and Alice Cooper on stage for one of his upcoming television episodes.
Then in July, Derek St. Holmes of the Ted Nugent Band after witnessing The Michael Nitro Band’s opening set, handed Michael his own guitar and invited Michael onstage to play a version of All Right Now by Free.
When watching the Michael Nitro Band perform, their hunger to play is apparent and their love of music is clear as they bring renewed energy to the stage every night. Michael brings the energy wherever he goes and includes everyone in the fun of every show.
“[Performing his original songs is] what his fans love him best for… rock guitar, seasoned with blues sound.” (Fast Lane Magazine).
The Michael Nitro Band’s previous recordings are available on iTunes and Michael is currently writing songs for their new release. Inspired and influenced by Led Zeppelin, Bad Company and Aerosmith, among others, his rock is reminiscent of feel good rock and roll from the 1970s with the underlying message of fun, party, and good times.
