Mike's performances feature a number of original songs written and
recorded with a definite Christian message. Mike's most recent band
66, a definite rock format more suited for non Christian
formats. Not all members of Route 66 are Christians and although
Mike was the primary song writer, the band did perform some non
Christian songs. The band performed a number of originals however,
most of which have Christian influences. Mike has used both solo and
Route 66 in Christian outreach and evangelism efforts.
Mike is also
involved with a "Seekers Musician Small Group" at his
church Westport. This group is a 15-20 week program that
involves individuals who are seeking truth in relation to their
spiritual needs. Some of these may be having difficulty in living a
life for Christ and others have not accepted Christ as their
forgiver and leader. This group involves 8-15
individuals who talk about religion, God, faith and general
spiritual questions and then spend time together creating music and
enjoying each others company.
Mike & Mary Jane use tracks and instruments to perform a blend
of oldies, ministry, and Christian songs. Suitable for both
Christian and Non Christian venues.
Mike is unique in that he has
experience in music from both a Christian and non Christian
perspective. For over 10 years he worked with some of the most
popular Christian and non Christian acts across America. Mike
has been credited as being the first Christian to put Christian
bands into non Christian venues successfully. He did this
while working with the band Rob Cassels (AKA Rob Castles).
Mike's involvement with music includes, promotion, management,
marketing, light, sound, and musician. Mike still plays with
bands as well as with his Worship Band at Westport Mennonite
Brethren Church. Mike Plays Bass Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica
