Invincible Dude condones audience participation, especially in the form of dancing. Of course Invincible Dude's music is top priority, but the visual elements on stage at the show are also very important for Invincible Dude. Because all of Invincible Dude's instrumentation is electronic, and there is only one member in the band, Invincible Dude must compensate for his lack of band mates, with intense volume, furious vocals, 3-D projections, and silver body suits.

Mike Wilson has been in a handful of rock bands through his high school and college career. Mike has really enjoyed playing drums in the Flying Eyes, but has also enjoyed playing bass in Fumblejerk, and synthesizer in Club Metal.

Mike Wilson explains Invincible Dude's origins:

"My main reason for starting Invincible Dude, was to be able to make the kind of music I wanted to make without any exceptions ... I drift toward more of a pop sensibility that has clashed with some of the rock bands I've been involved with. So I wanted to incorporate that lighter and bouncier aspect of pop with more raw tones and raucous vocals. I also thought the best way to get the full sound I was looking for, without involving more band members, would be to use electronic instruments that could be automated to some degree ... However I wanted to keep the performance as a LIVE performance, which is one reason why I chose to use the loop pedal instead of programming."
