Little Mike & The Tornadoes

No Cover

This powerhouse blues and rock n’ roll band from New York City is led by singer,
songwriter, producer and harp master Mike Markowitz. The band is well-known for its
flawless, high energy blues sound, modeled after the great Chicago bands of the 50’s.
They have played nearly every major metropolitan area in the United States and Canada,
some of the toughest hangouts, as well as the most sophisticated stages in the world, never
straying from their course of delivering hard back alley blues and rough rock and roll. Little
Mike, is a mean harmonica player who cut his teeth in New York City in the late 1970s and
early 1980s, backing up legendary Bluesmen Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, and Jimmy
Rogers. He then moved to Florida, and continued to perform and record through to the
early 2000’s.
After leading a series of bands as a teenager, Mike formed the Tornadoes in 1978. At age 22,
Mike was leading one of the busiest and toughest blues bands in New York City. Whenever
a visiting blues artist came to town and needed a band, Little Mike and the Tornadoes usually
got the call, backing artists such as Perkins, Rogers, Sumlin, Louis Meyers, Walter Horton,
Bo Diddley. Mike’s reputation led to the band’s touring and recording as the backing unit
for blues legends such as Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, and Jimmy Rogers.
