“...Mike Lenz is simply one of the best musicians in the area and he works his butt off to prove it. He brings groovy delta blues most nights of the week- you’ve got to catch his act at least once every couple months to keep your street cred in the parts. He’s got solo gigs Monday @ Annabell’s, Tuesday (Akron) @ Northside (Akron- weekly), Wednesday @ The Outpost (Kent- weekly), The Towpath Cabin (Massillon), as a duo with Peggy Doyle Friday at Maize Valley Market & Winery (Hartville) and with his Highway 61 Band at The Suburb Inn (Akron) on Saturday.”
“Mike Lenz: A specialist in 'old blues and classic country'
...Walk into the Towpath Cabin in Jackson Township most any Thursday night after 9 and there he’ll be.
For three hours each week, Mike Lenz serves up a range of old-time blues, folk and country tunes. He sings, plays acoustic guitar and harmonica, and stomps rhythmically on a raised piece of plywood.
...His show is no-frills, unassuming, casually riveting and long-running. He’s held this Thursday gig for seven years.”
