Mike Casey

A unique group not only in their approach but in instrumentation, the NYC based Mike Casey Trio is one of the hottest rising young bands jazz today. The absence of guitar/piano allows the band a distinctive sound: earthy & accessible, yet mature, mysterious, upbeat – full of surprises. On a mission to be a passionate vessel for “jazz” in the 21st century, this band demands the audiences’ attention with its searing, eclectic, powerful sound – whether bringing down the house with funky, adventurous originals or blowing the minds of listeners with genre-bending re-imaginations of songs by artists like The Beatles, Frank Ocean, Soundgarden, Queen, Daniel Caesar, and more.

Garnering over 2.4 million streams worldwide, Mike has been featured by the likes of Huffington Post, Forbes, Music Ally, cover of Spotify’s largest jazz playlist “State of Jazz”, front page of China’s NetEase, Evernote, Downbeat, Jay-Z’s TIDAL, Jazz in Europe, Amazon Music, @NPRMusic/WBGO/Jazz Night In America, Connecticut Magazine, Entrepeneur Magazine, Live for Live Music, jazz icon Sonny Rollins’s social media (the pioneer of the sax/bass/drums format), & much more.
