MIKE MEAD is a veteran singer/guitarist working in WDC, Baltimore, SoMD area. He is a strong dependable
performer who earned his reputation as the front man for the band FRANKIE AND THE ACTIONS.
Mike broadened his musical horizons by adding solo acoustic performances to his calendar in 2008. His versatile
repertoire and voice have proven to be a crowd pleaser in these venues.
Mike's acoustic inventory runs the gamut of musical tastes and time periods, including 60's Motown, 70's Classic Rock
and 80's, 90's and current Rock and Pop music. He particularly focuses on upbeat music that promotes audience
participation and enjoys performing one-hit wonders. He constantly adds new music to his directory to keep his
performances fresh and diverse.
Mike is an approachable performer and is open to management suggestions and audience requests. He is always
on time and is friendly and affable- on the mic and off.
FRANKIE AND THE ACTIONS retired their jersey, so to speak in October of 2011. Well it didn't take long for the
itch to rock came a knockin' and Mike is in a new band called THE SWAG. Check out theswagrocks.com and
"like"us on FaceBook . 2012 is the debut year of THE SWAG. With Mike front and center on lead vocals and
rhythm guitar, Butch Ritter on lead guitar, Tony Scott on bass and vocals and Scott Mona on drums, THE SWAG is
determined to make a splash in the local band scene offerings.
If you go to the calendar on this site, the dates with a BLUE SQUARE next to the venue name indicates it is a
band performance with THE SWAG . Otherwise it is a solo acoustic show.
Hope to see you at an acoustic performance or a rock and roll onslaught that is a SWAG show !
