Mikael Santana

Current Residence - Memphis Tennessee

Orignally from Miami Florida, Mike Santana took up the blues harmonica at the age of 30 after seeing the movie Crossroads. After two years of study and practice, he served a term of apprenticeship with Butch Mudbone and the Wolfpack at the King's Palace in Beale Street in Memphis Tennessee. It was during one of those gigs that Greg Allman sat in with the Wolfpack for a couple of numbers and afterward compared Mike's playing to that of the great Paul Butterfield.

After developing his vocal skills, Mike went on to front several blues bands in Memphis notably Black Cat Bone, Cash Money, The Blues City Band, and Metropolitan Avenue. In October of 1996, The MetroSonics were formed and appeared on the 1997 CD release Point of Departure.
