Mike was in several bands during his short life.
His last two bands were SLAM & then CRUSH. Not sure why these band pages have been taken down off facebook ???
One of his earlier bands was HOWZAT...you can still view them on Youtube...and leave comments.
We will never forget you...RIP xxxx

I thought it would be just a one off gig but over those 3 yrs we played together regularly and our musical journey took us all over the Naki. I remember that we even played in a milking shed, that was gangstar lol. not gonna lie, even though it was only 3yrs it was some of the BEST times I've ever had Performing you were always focused and ready to give the audience a great time no matter where (Milk shed) im really gonna miss you Mike, you are one of the best memories ill have when i talk to friends and Whanau about my time gigging...i wish we could of performed more together you were more than just a great singer,guitar,harmonica player your were a bloody good bugger.

⁣⁣⁣So saddened ⁣to hear of Mikes passing.

An absolute champion of a guy.

Mike was the heart and soul of our little Frucor band and his patience and encouragement were the only reason I had the confidence to take on 40+ songs for our conference.

Passing on my sincere loving thoughts and condolences to his family and friends.
