"A Cool 'n' Steady Burning, Robust Flavor That Always Tastes Fresh" -
LATEST: Mick's latest solo effort "Redemption Center II" (with appearances by members of Butcher's Blind, The Montauk Project, and the King Guys) was released on Sept 27th 2012, and can be previewed at http://mickhargreaves.com -
Since their debut at the Grey Horse Tavern (Bayport NY) on July 30th 2011, MICK HARGREAVES & THE KING GUYS (Mike Bifulco, Gary Dawson, Don Mangels, Jeff McLary, with Jen Hargreaves-Pawliczak, Pete Mancini and Tom Ryan often pitching in) have gone on to perform at the Rodeo Bar (NYC) and the Stephen Talkhouse (Amagansett, NY), and opened the Great South Bay Music Fest (Patchogue, NY) on the main stage Friday, July 13th 2012. A spring 2013 string of NY/NJ/PA/MD/DC dates will pair Mick with Pete Mancini (Butchers Blind) in an acoustic duo setting. -
Mick made a music & video contribution to Chris Butler's "Major Glitch" (Guinness Book of World Records' longest pop song ever recorded) in early 2012, and later in 2012, Mick will record his first record with The King Guys. -
A 2009 single/video paired a lavish Brian Wilson-meets-Phil Spector treatment of the late great Gary Jude Anderson's "Bridget" with a down-home front-parlour reading of Mick's "Can't Keep Track of You Blues", featuring Gene Casey (Lone Sharks) and Matty Liot (Montauk Project) on guitars. -
Mick's been the cornerstone bassist (a founding member, too) at the New York Roots Music Association (NYRMA). The list of other artists incorporating his low-end sounds, singing and guitar work is lengthy. He produces his recordings (and some by others, most recently The Dixie Bee-Liners and Butchers Blind) with the Lantern Sound Recording Rig.
