PRESENTED IN THE BRICK BOX
MiZ is a soulful, Rock-Americana artist from Northeast Pennsylvania who is known as a skillful and well rounded master of both acoustic and electric guitar. His sound is directly impacted by the coal mining region of PA and the songs evoke the rustic tones and imagery you would expect from the region and it’s cultural heritage.
The singer / songwriter / guitarist Mike Mizwinski gives name to the band and his solo work and it is his heart and soul– poured into the words and his guitar– that drives it all forward. We use the term singer/songwriter loosely here, as a MiZ show can feature fast, intricate instrumental guitar compositions, foot stomping bluegrass, soulful ballads, creative covers, and a melting pot of different styles- textures- flavors- and feels that make up the catalouge (over four albums worth) of self penned songs. Mike has maintained a freshness, a vibe, something, that keeps fans coming back for more.
MiZ has opened for America, The Wallflowers, Derek Trucks Band, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Blues Traveler, Shawn Colvin, Lyle Lovett, Leon Russell, Railroad Earth and many more. Since 2010 Mike has played in cities all over the world, spanning from Berlin Germany -Northern Canada – Los Angeles – Austin, Texas – New York City and everywhere in between. He has played onstage with artists such as America, Umphrey’s McGee, Donna Jean Godchaux, members of THE BAND, Ratdog, moe., Particle, String Cheese Incident, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Jackie Greene, Marc Ford + more.
Mike is now endorsing Framus/Warwick guitars and won the Tri-State Indie “Acoustic Artist of the Year” award two years in a row- 2011 & 2012.buy tickets
