Re: “Best Jammed-Out Kraut-Rock Funk Combo

Being a music fan with tastes all over the place, Mushroom fills the bill! Lively or
laid back, groovy jams and rockin' tracks, toss in the occasional
lovely ladies singing back up, and a good time is guaranteed!
Doesn't hurt to see them in Berkely, if you get the chance!

Re: “Most Multi-Talented Musician

Kev Choice Ensemble is one of the best live acts we have ever hosted at our venerable Arena Theater. This is an incredible show and folks in the bay area are quite fortunate to have regular opportunities to catch this act. Don't sleep on this one!

Re: “Best Street Musician: And most accomplished cimbalom player

Michael congradulations man you're wonderful and glad to see you getting this attention. You're music is the most haunting music I believe I've ever heard and in a sense emulated since I first discovered you in 1992. You give us all a gift. Luck with the fight both home, art and political, I'm along side. See you next time. Best Jim Goodin

Re: “Best Country Artist: Phantom trucker honky-tonk legend

Hi there; I'm dying to hear Kevin Blackie Farrell. Do you have any more information on him or his cd. Perhaps who his publishing house is? Since I live in Canada, it's not likely I'll be able to see him in person, but I'd love to know more !! Buck

Re: “Best Street Musician: And most accomplished cimbalom player

As the Director of Art Officially Favored, I have to say that after almost 3 years of taking on this project and bring it back to life, I have to say... Michael is the greatest musician in the world today, on the stature of Piazzolla, Mozart and Tom W. Best, Martin Yernazian

Re: “Best Street Musician: And most accomplished cimbalom player

I am fascinated by Michael's music, as is anyone who is fortunate enough to hear him. However, before I ever heard a note, I was astonished at his intelligent commentary on the political state of this nation. He is absolutely brilliant -- and his music is just icing on the cake... sheila

Re: “Best Street Musician: And most accomplished cimbalom player

I have been following Michael's music since 1983, when I saw him play on the UC Berkeley campus. His inventiveness and commitment as a musician, poet, and political gadfly have been major contributions to Bay Area culture. An American Original... Michael has literally taken his music to the The People; millions have seen him play: not as a commodity or product one must pay to share, but as a free experience that becomes part of our inner journey. Really looking forward to seeing his film, Art Officially Favored (see the website). Michael: Thank you for sharing your creative spirit so generously!

Re: “Best Street Musician: And most accomplished cimbalom player

Michael Masley, Mr. Mike, Artist General -- oh man, where to begin? His music is like Celtic angels at frolic in the endless gold afternoon of some Pagan heaven. It wafts through the urban air in a shimmering cloud of stoned bliss, and it's totally legal (so there, DEA)! His bow-hammers are just the tip of his inventive iceberg. Nameless auto parts? Jumbo industrial rubber bands? Egg slicers, fer cryin out loud! If it makes a sound, he'll make it into an instrument. Then we come to his politics, frothing explosions of culture-jamming e-poetry that lacerate the powers-that-be with fixated lunatic clarity. Someone give this guy a foundation grant, a lucrative SecondLife career or a Cabinet position. We'd all benefit.

22 years i've been hearing M2 , stumbling across him all over the place... and sure enough, at spring by the seaside in santa cruz heard his ethereal vibes winding through Pacific Garden... thanks Michael

Re: “Best Street Musician: And most accomplished cimbalom player

Yah but he's a kommunist and he doesn't believe in Jesus nor "W" so then he's also a heathen. I know! I knew him when.

Re: “Best Street Musician: And most accomplished cimbalom player

A Berkeley moment - climbing out of the BART station to the sound of Michael's music. His sound always stops me, puts a smile on my face, and helps me keep it there as I finally go on.
