During his storied career, Mick made friends with countless fine Rock & Blues player, and when he founded his Gentlemen’s Blues Club in 2005, he invited a number of his old associates to join up.

Their 1st album, Shotgun Wedding, was released to critical acclaim and was embraced by radio audiences in Europe & North America. Bolstered by this success, Gentlemen’s Blues Club issued their sophomore effort, entitled Longhorn Honeymoon in 2007. Riding the wave of their booming popularity, in 2008 Mick & the boys came out with Red White and Blue!, featuring the powerful Biker-anthem, “Harley Davidson® Red White and Blue”.
