Headed to the beach this summer? Don't forget to pack your sunscreen and Buried Treasure the new summer single release by Mike McEnery. You'll love this fun pirate tune - with or without your eye patch! Currently in rotation on all major Trop Rock internet radio stations. Available for download on iTunes and Amazon and streaming on Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music.
Mike is honored to be included in the 2019 class of the Trop Rock Music Association's Academy Members for his contributions to the Trop Rock music genre through recordings, live performances and promotion of Trop Rock music.
Phlockers Magazine, the on-line magazine where Parrot Heads turn for the latest Trop Rock news and info, featured a 14-page article including an album review of Where the Current Takes Me and an interview with Mike McEnery in their September 2018 issue.
Mike McEnery’s short career as a stand-up comedian lasted only three gigs. But by a strange twist of fate, two of these gigs were opening for Jay Leno. Jay's only advice to Mike was “Write your own material, kid!”
As it turns out, that advice was helpful later in life. After years as the fearless leader of The Jumbo Shrimp Band, and playing way too many Jimmy Buffett covers at pool parties, tiki bars and yacht clubs throughout the Midwest, Mike realized it was time to break out of the grass skirt and coconut bra rut....It was time to finally write his own material and create his own music!
Mike’s debut album Where the Current Takes Me was released in July of 2018 and includes five tracks that have charted on Trop Rock radio stations: Castaways, Where the Current Takes Me, Tropical Empire, Red Right Returning and Frosty Mug.
His follow up single Buried Treasure was released in June of 2020 and has received consistent airplay on Trop Rock radio and has been included on Top Tracks listings by multiple stations. Co-written with Dan Sullivan of The Detentions and featuring John Patti on steel drums, it's a three-minute summer beach party!
Mike McEnery performs throughout the Northern Hemisphere and resides part-time on his sailboat in the unlikely birthplace of Trop Rock – St. Louis, MO, where Chuck Berry first blended Cuban rhythms and Rock and Roll in 1956 on “Havana Moon.”
