Started as a young teenager, training in many styles of music from jazz, to rock, to metal. He is a skilled musician in bass, guitar, piano, and vocals. For 6 years he put aside the instruments to be the lead singer for several rock and metal bands. Now back to focusing on his true talent as bass guitarist, he gets to contribute his gift for singing through backing vocals. Mike’s in charge of holding the “down-low” and plays a mean 5-string Schecter bass guitar.

A fan of all types of music, he draws influence from Rush, to Dream Theater, to Disturbed to Lacuna Coil. John is proud to endorse Pork Pie drums and Soultone cymbals. John steals some of the energy from his passion for ice hockey to help put the "kick" in Kick Your Ass!!!
