Biography

Mike Elgert promises to please fans of an eclectic mix of pop/rock with the release of his first solo effort “Days Gone By” in February of 2006.

“An exquisite mix of pop songs that will linger in your memory long after the first few spins.” “Could easily be the missing link between the edgy, guitar-laden Jellyfish and the later day solo workings of Jason Falkner.” These are couple of quotes from a review of Mike’s earlier releases with his former band Super TC.

While with his former band, Mike Elgert was nominated for Outstanding Rock Group for the 2004 Detroit Music Awards and was a featured guest on The Mitch Albom Show and 92.1 The Edge In Lansing. Opening for bands such as Butch Walker, Tonic, Fastball, The Fags, Oleander and The Figgs, Mike has played at Detroit’s top venues such as St. Andrews Hall, The Magic Stick, Memphis Smoke, The Shelter and Small’s.

Listen for yourself you will not be disappointed.

Discography

Mike Elgert - Days Gone By
"Welcome Mike Elgert, Not Lamers. Your new favorite power pop artist. Elgert bring the whole package here on "Days Gone By". First song, "She Arrives" has a vocal that recalls a most passionate Robin Zander/Cheap Trick, a bit of Off Broadway(the band), too. "Said Too Much" suddenly brings the Dwight Twilley sound. "Retire" bring the house down, has it all. Some of the material has a bluesy roots-rock feel like a mellow, but catchy Black Crowes or Lenny Kravitz song. There`s 16 songs here and on a few of them, there is a Falkner/Jellyfish influence, too. Hell, even Imperial Drag on others! Crowded House, too. The Point? The sum of all these disparate parts is just that "Days Gone By" takes chances, does not play by established convention and works up a sound that is wholly "Mike Elgert". This is one of those releases where I just have to go: "Just Listen, will ya?!". It says it better than I can. Indeed, at the end, it is the songwriting drives the album upward with a dogged persistence. A striking, lasting debut bow, Extremely Highly Recommended!" - Not Lame Recordings Feb 2006
