Little Mike and the Tornadoes – Breaking out of, and coming home to, the BLUES

Ripping it up…
Tearing it apart…
…in a good way.

This powerhouse blues and rock n' roll band from New York City is led by singer, songwriter, producer and harp master Mike Markowitz. The band is well-known for its flawless, high energy blues sound, modeled after the great Chicago bands of the 50's. They have played nearly every major metropolitan area in the United States and Canada, some of the toughest hangouts, as well as the most sophisticated stages in the world, never straying from their course of delivering hard back alley blues and rough rock and roll. Little Mike Markowitz is a mean harmonica player who cut his teeth in New York City in the late 1970's and early 1980's, backing up legendary Bluesmen Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, and Jimmy Rogers. He then moved to Florida, and continued to perform and record through the early 2000s. After a hiatus from music, during which he raised his family near Gainesville, Florida, he's now playing high-energy blues live again.
