Some of those bands were “The Gigilos”, “Dickey and the Valentions” ,”Tim Wooley and the Shakers”,”OuttathaBox”, “Powerline”, and many more. He traveled thru Texas and other states sharing his talent and love for music. He adored it , music fullfilled his soul like no other. Michael met the love of his life, Deborah in 2011. They fell in love at first sight. On their first date he bought her an orange rose, little did he know it was her favorite color. After a great dinner they settled down and bonded thru music. In June of 2017 we found out that Michael had cancer. He fought like no other. He didn’t complain, stayed strong and stood proud.
