Our "Live from" Tunes

Although not technically perfect we want to share some moments from live performances with you. Hope you enjoy them.

Blues Sunday in Newark

Join us Sunday, Mar. 2 at the Elks Club in Newark and you'll be treated to music from the top talent in Western NY. At least 8 bands and 8 hours of the best blues, R&B, and roots music you'll ever hear. The doors open at noon. We go onstage at about 4:30. Check out our show schedule for more details.

Beale Street on South

After packing the place in Webster, we head to The Beale Street Cafe on South Avenue. It's our first time at this great music club and we're playing in the "Big" room. Please join us Feb. 15 and surprise your honey a second time.

Who we are

Big Mike & The Motivators is an up and coming high energy quintet based in Rochester N.Y. Our line-up consists of Mike D’Aurizio on lead vocals and harmonica; Carmen Verzillo; guitar; Jonathan Tucker, piano and organ; Phil Supernault, bass guitar; and Marc Zimmerman, drums and vocals. Our music is best described as American roots music and our performances are a rousing evening of blues and soul, with a dose of rock and roll.
