We got tickets to an event last night that we were totally impressed with. The hospital I work for was holding a fundraiser for the new Hospice House we are building and I got a pair of tix for free. So I thought hey why not. IT"S FREE. Well let me tell ya.... It was awesome.
I would have paid the $40 bucks they were charging for the tickets.
He is hilarious. If you are a music lover, there is NO way you could not enjoy his show. He is totally one of a kind.
He has a show in Vegas, and not in one of the high priced over the top places. So I would be more than happy to go see him. Looks like from his website it only costs like $19 bucks too.
More About The Show...
Mike Rayburn has been called "The World's Funniest Guitar Virtuoso" (he'd settle for Cleveland's Funniest Guitar Virtuoso, but whatever). From Bach to rock Mike's "Classically Trained... Comically Derailed" is an energetic odyssey of masterful guitar, outrageous comedy, and musical combinations you won't believe - Bruce Springsteen sings Green Acres. Led Zeppelin sings Dr. Seuss. Hendrix sings Cumbaya. "If Victor Borge played guitar (and drank too much coffee) he'd sound like Mike," says promoter, Mark Johnson. This is the show that has earned Mike standing ovations at all eight of his appearances at Carnegie Hall, has him starring on the strip in Las Vegas, and along with his keynote keeps him booked one hundred or more times per year for corporations, associations, churches and theaters.
"Brilliant!!! I knew you were good and funny, but I had no idea... WOW! I love the way you balance humor and musicality... rare to hear such clean and expressive playing. You just got a major new fan. I'll be telling everyone I know."
- John Oates, of "Hall and Oates"
