Ard Eevin is a collective of musicians singer/songwriter Mike Lizarraga has enjoyed performing and recording with throughout the years. These include the first two musicians he ever played with, James Graham (drums) and Rob Gallagher (guitar/bass). Other musicians include Joseph Algiers Jr. (Piano, Organ), Jason Hemmens (sax), and Ryan Sherman (guitar) and Tina Guo (cello).

Mike bought his first guitar at the age of nineteen with no musical background in his family. The purchase came on a whim after learning he was possibly related to members of the famous Mexican band Banda el Recodo de Cruz Lizarraga. Wondering if he had music in his blood, he began taking guitar lessons and started to immediately write songs. Lessons became boring after a few months and he decided to start looking for a band.

Not knowing any better, Mike approached James with a tape of his music. With over 30 years experience playing the drums, James worked with Mike on a weekly basis.

Things quickly progressed and Mike played his first show in front of people at the World Famous Whiskey-A-Go-Go. Other venues Mike has played include The Viper Room, The Knitting Factory, The Cat Club, The Joint, The Gig, BB King’s Blues Club, and 14 Below.
