Mike Dillon (b. 1965, American) is one of the most dynamic and multifaceted percussionists in the country, best known for his unforgettable live performances, unorthodox percussion rig and distinct original sound. After emerging in late 1980’s as the first to lead a rock/funk band as a vocalist and vibraphone player, contributing to its evolution by his use of effects, Dillon has become well-known for producing genre-bending music that transcends categorization. Over the last 27 years, his creative song-writing and the repertoire of artists he has worked with – - on tour, stage or in the studio – - reveal his eclectic musical inspiration and skillful versatility. Artists such as: Les Claypool, Ani DiFranco, Polyphonic Spree, Brave Combo, Sex Mob, Galactic, Secret Chief’s 3, Karl Denson, Steven Bernstein, Charlie Hunter, James Singleton, George Porter Jr., Johnny Vidocavich and Bob Schneider. His individual projects include: Critter’s Buggin’, Garage A Trois, Billy Goat, Mike Dillon’s Go-Go Jungle, Hairy Apes BMX, Malachy Papers, the Dead Kenny G’s, who regularly open for Primus, and his latest, The Mike Dillon Band.
As a touring musician and prolific song-writer, Mike Dillon has continuously pushed his distinct sound in new and inventive directions. On stage, Dillon is a powerful force, with boundless energy that hails a punk rock/hardcore edge and the seamless ability to play multiple percussive instruments at once. For nearly three decades, fans have been draw to Dillon’s organic style, creative musicianship and the way his music never fails to stir the crowd into a big dance party from start to finish. After taking a brief hiatus from solo projects, Dillon is back at the helm with his latest quartet, The Mike Dillon Band, which delivers a cache of his new songs, infuses fresh life into his classics, and features Mike Dillon (vibraphone, percussion, lead vocals), Adam Gertner (drums), Cliff Hines (guitar, bass and keyboards) and Carly Meyers (trombone, vocals), whose raw talent, enthusiasm and infectious dance moves have created quite a stir among music goers in the past year.

Event details ——> Hijacking Music Festival
This past weekend we were blessed to be asked to perform at the 2nd annual Organic Hippie festival in Montgomery Al.
Here is what the host had to say about the event.
Last night's party showed me something real in Montgomery. As I walked toward the stage, I stopped to turn and face the crowd on the grassy hill, and what I saw was so beautiful. I saw young, old, rich, poor, black, white, men, women and everything in between… and even some so strange that don't even have a category all sitting together and laughing, exchanging hand shakes and sharing drinks. We were a family and I cant thank you enough for being a part of that! The love was incredible! Thanks to all the bands that played, the oyster bar, bailey brothers, officer boone, and everyone who came out. Yall are amazing! ♥ PEACE
It's incredible to be a part of such a beautiful thing.
See you soon Montgomery!
