Mike Van Eyes is Vancouver’s premiere boogie woogie rock ‘n’ roll piano player. He’s contributed his magic keys to an extraordinary amount of great artists from his roles in the city’s legendary R&B troupe, The Epics – and the all-star band of rockers, The Trespassers, with members of DOA and the Scramblers, to his past stints with the Herald Nix band (where he toured with The Clash and even sat in with Howlin’ Wolf’s band), Colin James, The Yodell’s, The Undertakin’ Daddies and Peewee Clayton.
The Mike Van Eyes band can play any stage – truly loved by young and old, everyone from hipsters to seniors love great rock ‘n’ roll played with the fervor, passion and skill that Mike and his all-star troupe bring. They’ve headlined numerous festivals in recent years as well as packing most of Vancouver’s acclaimed music haunts such as the Railway Club and The Yale. Mike’s band includes some of Vancouver’s finest rockers – Howard Rix (Trespassers, Scramblers), Ron Scott (Shanghai Dog), Steve Taylor (Ray Condo) and revolving door of very special guests.
Currently, Mike is completing a deluxe 2 LP gatefold album of 20 plus tracks with his 18 piece band at AfterLife Studios (formerly Mushroom Studios) and coming out soon on Northern Electric.
