Meet Mike Yob. Originally from Maryland, Mike moved to Fort Collins in 1987. Relocating to Steamboat Spring, CO in the late 90's, Mike found his stride as a songwriter. His songs are rooted deeply in traditional bluegrass, and they are dangerously catchy. During his years in Steamboat Springs, Mike played in the band Brew Glass Boys (featuring other now local Fort Collins musicians Ian Smith, and Mike Fritz). After five years, they disbanded and in 2004 Mike found himself back in Fort Collins. Upon arriving back in Northern Colorado, he joined with some musicians to form Two Bits 'a Gander, who would enjoy a short stint as the house band at local venue, Avogadro's Number.
After this time, Mike focused mainly on writing and performing solo tunes, mostly at another then local hotspot, CrankNStein (R.I.P.). Currently, Mike is enjoying a run of solo shows in the Fort Collins area. Also, he is a Virgo. Hope you enjoy the tunes as much as we do!
