One guitar. One voice. Pure music. The hard rock veterans are back with a vengeance to provide a softer and more up close and personal look at the popular unplugged rock show.

Biography

From the ashes of one of New Brunswick Canada's heaviest rock bands, Sean Burgess and Mike Dunn emerged on the busy music scene in 2004 with a strong and loyal following to their unique acoustic solo project. Taking what they considered the gems of classic rock and a mixture of todays hits, they transformed the sound into an intimate and interactive evening with the fans much like the VH-1 Unplugged sessions made popular by MTV.

During the summer months in New Brunswick, Mike and Sean stick to an exhausting itinerary which saw them perform 63 shows in the summer of 2006. In the fall and winter, they write originals and record with a solid schedule of club appearances to keep the fans happy. With a CD release set for this year and their new association with Sonicbids online, the duo hope to have a mainstream following by the summer of 2007.

"Effortless vocals and amazing guitar work."
Mark & Cindy Craig - Seattle, Washington

"My first patio show with these guys left me wondering why they were still here in the Maritimes."
Bruce Killam - Saint John, N.B.

"Acoustic and visually stunning."
Kim Morehouse-Brewer - Halifax, Nova Scotia

"Sean Burgess has a unique and hard-edged approach to capturing the crowds attention to his every note. I was mesmerized from start to finish. The highlight of my New Brunswick vacation."
Jan Versloot, Aarhus, Denmark

"Fredericton's best kept secret."
Donna - Fredericton, N.B.

The Acoustic Mafia has performed for the Canadian Armed Forces leaving for the Afghanistan mission, and have also donated their time for a fundraising benefit for Chrysalis House, a shelter for homeless and runaway youth.

*UPDATE*
The Acoustic Mafia re-signs with FUZZY DUCK BREWERS CORP. that includes a clothing contract and studio recording time!
WELL DONE BOYZ!

Lyrics

The Days

Written By: Sean Burgess/Mike Dunn

Lock the door tonight,
and throw away the key
Cuz’ until the morning light,
it’s just you and me
I can hold you if you want,
show you the meaning of our love
I can love you with my body,
bring down heaven from above
With every breath you take girl,
your body moves with mine
The way you look at me,
I get lost deep in your eyes
Wrap yourself around me,
two bodies become one
If I cried the day I lost you,
my tears would melt the sun
Because you complete me,
You know just how to touch and talk to my heart,
You know you lead me,
With your everlasting light that leads the way,
You are the days
You are my days
Lock the door tonight,
and throw away the key
‘cause until the morning light,
it’s just you and me,
There will never be the time girl,
to show you it’s so real,
So I will lay with you in silence,
and love is what you’ll feel,
you complete me,
You know just how to touch and talk to my heart,
You know you lead me,
With your everlasting light that leads the way,
You are the days (x5)
Don’t go away, yeah
You complete me
You know just how to touch and talk to my heart
You complete me
You know just how to touch and talk to my heart
And you know you lead me
With your everlasting light that leads the way
You are the days
You are my days
You know you lead me
With your everlasting light that shows the way
You are the days
You are the days
Don’t go away
Don’t you go away..
