 Hello Music Lovers,


Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain or his web site!  Contrary to the information at the Arrivederci web site, I WILL be appearing with Chuck Everett and Matthew Lotz at Arrivederci on Wed. 7/17 from 7-10. It is listed as Chuck Everett and Friends and I am honored to be one of his Friends!  Always fun and cathartic to play Jazz and various other genres with these two great musicians outside of the musical confines of our cover band, Pressure Point Band. www.pressurepointband.com.  Arrivederci is a great spot to listen to live music and hang out and actually , one of the few places where I go to do just that.  It is expected to be hot that day so this just might be the respite that you are seeking.  The air conditioning at Arrivederci works well, the beer is cold and the band will be cool too!  If I were you, I would defintely put this on the calender!


Warm Regards,


Mike Winkle


"“It's always tempting when hearing singers to play the "sounds like" game. I know I caught echoes of Bobby Darin, Mel Torme, Sinatra, and Jack Jones. Nobody grows up in a vacuum: if we're alive, we absorb things. But what struck me about Mike Winkle is that - at this juncture in a career that has included forays in and out of various musical genres - he's a genuinely accomplished jazz vocalist with a voice all his own.” Excerpt from performance review at Jimmy Mak’s Portland, Oregon"  Bernie Knab, Oregon Jazz Scene

"Just when you’re sure that the male of the species has virtually disappeared from the realm of quality jazz/pop singing, along comes Michael Winkle to set your mind at ease. Michael’s new CD is a mixed bag of proven standards but also covers some pop things from the past. Certainly an album highlight is his composition, “The Only Dream" Michael manages to straddle the line between pop and jazz without ever losing his balance."  George Fendel, Oregon Jazz Scene Jazz Society January 2008
