"The Mike Roberts Band" - Self Titled E.P. (September 2009)

"Tired of You" - Single (January 2010)



It was at the age of 13 when Mike Roberts first scavenged through his basement to find his father’s old Les Paul guitar, and within the first few moments of taking that guitar out of it’s case he realized what his life would soon become. It wasn’t more than a year after he started playing when he first hit the local music scene. He sold out bars and clubs, and started gigging frequently around the Syracuse area. His life immediately become 100% devoted to music. During the time from when he would come home from school, to before his shows later in the night, he would spend his afternoons practicing, listening, and studying the music of blues and rock legends such as B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Jimmie Vaughan, Doyle Bramhall II, Jimi Hendrix, Derek Trucks and a long list of others. Amazed with the soul of the old blues and roots music, but moved by the power of 60’s era rock, Mike would soon manufacture his own sound compiling all of these influences.

The year 2009 saw the creation of The Mike Roberts Band, consisting of brothers Brett and Corey Hobin, whom are the son's of 1970's rock icon Todd Hobin, both of which have a lifetime of experience touring, recording, and have been apart of a family of legendary musicians. The recording of the band's first self titled EP was produced over the summer of 2009, and released on iTunes in September. While the new album not only showcases Mike’s musical talent and songwriting, it showcases his abilities as a producer and the chief mixing engineer. The new band was barely a month old before hitting the music circuit hard already sharing the stage with names such as Pat Travers and Kim Simmonds, as well as receiving local radio airplay. In 2010, the band has been working on their next full length album, and recently released a new single available for free download online. Mike is a part of every aspect of his music by managing himself and recording and releasing his music independently.

Mike has gained experience working for live sound production companies as well as in engineering in the studio, both of which with many national acts and commercial household names. Now 17 years old, he is currently attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA to further his education as a producer and sound engineer and has a limited schedule available for booking throughout the north east.
