A little about Michael Physick...
Rooted in Vancouver, Canada then transplanted to Seal Beach CA, Michael Physick has been entertaining with his acoustic guitar in venues ranging from small intimate campfires to large outdoor stages for over 20 years in both Canada and the US. Michael has an extensive song list that spans 6 decades of top 40 music and all genres. As a solo performer Michael can play with a mellow beach vibe and be in the background or when the mood is right, turn things up by looping live beats on his guitar and layering bass, rhythm and vocal parts to get people up on their feet dancing.
Recently, Michael has added a drummer and bass player forming "the Michael Physick Trio." With Dave Brennan on drums/percussion and Phil Snowden on bass this trio plays the same eclectic mix of top 40 cover tunes but with added energy and dynamics. The trio performs both acoustically (with upright acoustic bass) and with electric guitars depending on the venue.
Currently, Michael enjoys playing weekly gigs in Southern California's beach communities. He plays as a solo artist, or duo with his talented wife Trina on percussion or with his new founded Trio. You can catch him in regular rotation at some of your favorite restaurants, bars and coffee houses including: House of Blues, Hennessy's Tavern, O'Malley's, Brix, 5 O'Clock Wine Bar, Bogarts, the Eldorado and Mahe.
Michael is also available for private events as a solo artist, duo act or trio. You can also book a combination of these for an event like a wedding and have Michael play solo for the ceremony, then bring in the upright bass and light percussion for cocktail hour and dinner, then switch to electric full drums when the dancing gets started. Michael bring a high quality digital sound system to every event he plays at so you can rest assured that the sound will be high quality.
