““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”

    Hello Music Lovers, I am pleased to announce that I am singing with The Chuck Everett Trio on Thursday 6/27 at the Mecca of Jazz and wine culture that is Arrivederci in Milwaukie. I will be joined by Chuck Everett who is for my money, one the most versatile guitarists you will hear, the great Joe Millward on piano and bass (how does he do that?!) and the wonderful Ward Griffith on drums. The fun starts at 7:00 sharp(ish) and we play untill 10:00. Arrivederci is simply one of the best places in our area to hang out and listen to live music. Great staff, great food, wine selection off the charts and my favorite beer! This will be fun and you don't want to be left out. Seriously, you don't want to miss this! In all honesty, this could be one of the best shows of the year. I'll be candid, you will be sorry should you forgo this opportunity to see arguably one of the greatest collection of talent ever assembled in one place. Hype, err, hope I didn't lay it on too thick. See you Thursday! Warm Regards, Mike Winkle Arrivederci 17023 SE McLoughlin Blvd Milwaukie, OR 97267 (503) 659-1143 www.arrivederciwine.com www.michaelwinkle.com
