One Man Band

at Rustic Oyster House

People have often referred to Mike as a One-Man-Band (OMB) or a Jukebox because he can play so many different tunes on request and is happy performing solo.
“I get charged up when I connect with a live audience. Whether that means getting them to sing along to “Country Road Take Me Home” or the “Gambler “or to dance to their favorite Country or Classic Rock & Roll tune.  I believe that it’s important for me to use my musical gift to bring joy to people’s lives. I’ve volunteered as a music teacher for kids through Music for Minors and for the past 7 years I’ve been singing to cancer patients at UCSF.    Playing music and engaging with a live audience fills my heart with joy,” –Mike “One Man Band” Ofiesh.  For private bookings, contact Michael at:
