Ace's Live Music

Dear Loyal Patrons and Music Lovers:
Ace's Live has temporarily closed! It has permanently closed "The Barn" at it's current location. The building and land has been sold to another company and it will no longer be used as a music venue, restaurant or bar. The Ace's Live team has been in negotiations to relocate the bar, restaurant and music venue to a new location in the Bradenton area. We had hoped that the relocation deal would have been completed by the time of the land sale. However, more time is needed. Upon re-opening, Ace's Live will continue to be the leader in live music with a full liquor bar and kitchen, hosting the very best in national bands on a regular basis, along with great local talent. Please check back to this website and our Facebook page for further details on our future location. Thank you again to all of you for your tremendous support over the past 15 years and we'll see you soon!

Sunday January 3 – Little Mike & The Tornadoes – 5 pm

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.
