Biography

Mike Lorenz is a young guitarist established in Lehigh Valley, PA leading a quartet of up-and-coming musicians performing his original jazz compositions. The group’s influences come from the avant-garde to the tradition of jazz combining the entire history of the music.

Together, the group has performed at Smalls Jazz Club in New York City, Chris' Jazz Cafe, the Tritone, Sci-Fi Philly/Ars Nova Workshop series in Philadelphia, Puck Live in Doylestown, PA and Bethlehem's PA's Musikfest.
