Tonight! Mike Mineo to Play Propaganda

This past April the long awaited release of Mike Mineo's debut album was celebrated with a big party at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca Raton. For the show, Mineo assembled a seven-piece band to rock, waltz, laugh, and groove through all 18 songs, in order, from the wildly eclectic Eccentricity. The album release, and the show, represented the culmination of over a year's worth of work and dreaming. Since the release party, Mineo has played a handful of gigs around South Florida, mostly solo and with accompaniment from tuba player Bill Muter and drummer Darren Scott. Lately though, most of his time has been spent booking shows for two upcoming tours.

The first will be a three-week long solo tour from South Florida to NYC

and back, kicking off on July 5th. Then, in August, Mineo will hit the

road with Scott and a purported keyboard prodigy named John Epstein for

a full tour of the US. Before he leaves, in between long days in the

booking grind, he'll be playing a few more local shows. Tonight,

Mineo, Muter, and Scott will be delivering Mineo's well crafted-songs,

which channel such diverse influences as Frank Zappa, Danny Elfman, and

Van Morrison, to the fine patrons of Propaganda in Lake Worth.

Mike Mineo. With Sweet Chariot, Splash Atoms, and Now Breathers. 8 p.m. Saturday, June 12 at Propaganda, 6 South J St., Lake Worth. Call 561-547-7273 or visit
