Mike Luno Band is a guitar-bass-drums-vocals 3-piece rock act based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The music has liberal elements of funk and fusion with overtones of reggae and prog occasionally sneaking in. While the music might have you tapping your toes or dancing around your living room, the lyrics have no throwaway, no filler, and at times no mercy - colourful observations on the contradictions, conundrums, frustrations and self-defeat of human behaviour. What's your poison now? The Mike Luno Band is here to describe it with a smile and a groove. MLB believes in giving every audience its money's worth, and a live performance has the energy and musical duties for twice the number of musicians in the band. This, in fact, is their reason for being - from an appetite for music with powerful, unapologetic musicianship, groove with fire, thought-provoking lyrics and compositions made to stand the test of time, they aspire to be the band they would want to see and hear themselves.
Founding members Curtis Leippi (drums) and Mike Luno (vocals, guitar) formed their band fifteen years ago on Vancouver Island, British Columbia with the express purpose of musically pleasing themselves first. With a handful of Mike's original tunes and a grab-bag of cover songs ranging from Paul Simon to the Screaming Headless Torsos, Joe Tex to Dave Matthews, Crowded House to Led Zeppelin, the band was happily surprised to find that such a repertoire could actually attract a local audience. In various incarnations (calling themselves 'Victoria Secret' after their hometown, and later 'Devil You Don't' before settling on Mike Luno Band) and with intermittent changes in personnel, MLB enjoyed some small local notoriety, enjoying nominations and a win at the annual Island Music Awards.
The band eventually relocated to Vancouver (the city, not the island...it can be confusing for non-locals) in Summer 2010 and recruited bassist/vocalist extraordinaire Trevor Andres. They have since gigged frequently in Vancouver and are on the brink of releasing a 12-song CD entitled 'Get Inside'.
