Mike Fantastic are a 4 piece electro-pop outfit hailing from the surrounding areas of Cardiff, Wales. Influences derive through decades of funk and disco fuelled pop music, from the likes of Earth Wind & Fire and Prince to modern day chart success stories such as La Roux and Alphabeat.
Five friends desire to take on music from a fresh angle in their scene began the formation of Mike Fantastic. Having all ventured into the music scene with previous bands of various genres (The Story So Far/Dignity Dies First/Set in Motion), Mike Fantastic became an opportunity to dispose of guitars and ditch the generic 'rock' sounds of bands currently circling the local scene.
Mike Fantastic formed in early 2010 and consists of the traditional arrangement of a drummer, bassist and front man, plus the addition of two synth/keyboard players along with laptops and percussion. The formula for electro-pop entertainment was established.
When not on stage, Mike Fantastic keep their growing fan base entertained online in a "hands-on" manner through Mike Fantastic TV. Various short videos are available to watch for free on websites such as youtube and facebook to keep fans updated on all fronts.
