Mikey Jr & Band

For most of the time, the main complaint I have on young talent is their
"over-the-top" factor. I mean, they over state everything from stage
antics, facial contortions, vocal screams to blistering fast blues
scales. This young talent seems to have already got it out of his system
and now plays with the taste and finesse of a middle-aged, seasoned pro.
I like his name too.
