Look for special gigs featuring Mike and Tony and others -
this is a powerhouse band you won't want to miss!
They don't get to play together that often so watch for dates.


The pandemic of 2020 has brought a lot of changes - first there were no gigs, then a few solo gigs, and now some band gigs can happen.  Mike is excited to begin a new project featuring some terrific musicians and excellent songs you already know and love.

The Nellies

Featuring Peggy LeCuyer and an ever changing cast of players featuring Kevin Maul, Gene Lemme,

Karen Ann and Mike McMann


The Nellies are  an Albany, NY based hard driving, modern bluegrass band.

The Nellies perform and combine a mix of originals written by various band members and well chosen covers performed by Fred Eaglesmith, Donna the Buffalo, The Grateful Dead, Kasey Chambers, Gram Parsons, Abigail Washburn, Bob Dylan and Gillian Welch as well as the inclusion of some favorite, traditional bluegrass songs.  

The Doornails

Featuring Ted Hennessy, Gene Lemme and Mike McMann


Venturing down from the hills east of the Hudson, this talented trio mixes the elements of old style blues and bluegrass into something new, different and slightly warped.   The Doornails deliver a memorable collection of ‘tongue-in-cheek’ originals with obscure covers and a few familiar ‘warhorses’.  All of their songs come flavored with some twang, a little soul and a lotta chops.  The stellar musicianship of Master-Flat Picker, Mike McMann and longtime harp blaster/songwriter Ted Hennessy shine when this trio rips through a set.  All the while, ‘Geno’ Lemme on the stand up bass keeps The Doornails from veering off too far off into the ditch.


Mike McMann


Mike is often found playing solo and is always available to book solo - with his large repertoire he is able to plan a solo event to fit most requests.
