Biography:

The Michael Cleary band is a Hartford institution. They are celebrating their 25th year of making original blues/funk/rock music with a twist. In 2009 MCB was voted Best Jam Band in the Hartford Advocate Readers poll.
Their shows have been described as great songs, monstrous solos, epic jams, funky grooves, wacky humor; all in all a diverse, joyous musical stew played and sung by talented musicians who love what they do.
