Mike began playing snare
drum in 2006 through the American Celtic organization.
He often attended the St. Patrick's Day parade as a
boy with his father, which inspired him to learn the
snare drum. His main tutelage has come from Lane Maxson,
Andy Hamilton and Bob Mulligan.
Mike's favorite pipe bands are the Cullen pipe band
of County Cork, FDNY Emerald Society and American Celtic
of course! His favorite tunes are Garry Owen and Scotland
the Brave. His most enjoyable moment with the band,
besides marching up 5th Ave on St. Patty's Day, was
watching Walt try to play street beat at Montauk with
one hand and hold up his kilt with the other!
Mike lives in Huntington with his wife MaryAnne and
their three children Michael (ACPB D/S), Jillian and Danny.
