Mike Love has played in many live bands, doing his first club gig at age 16, and having his first solo gig 5 years ago. Hesitant to do it at first, after a little while he began to like the freedom of performing, and also the accountability. If it didn’t sound good or the timing was off or the pitch was flat, there was no one else to blame. It really made him reevaluate himself as a musician. After a turning point, Mike Love started thinking of new creative ways to make long shows interesting with only one musician on stage. He started to use a loop pedal to record loops live. Beatboxing, basslines, rhythm parts, harmonies, whatever needed to be done to keep it interesting and unique, while staying true to himself and his musical message. Over the years, Mike Love has been blessed to share the stage with many artists he’s admired and looked up to, including Groundation, Steel Pulse, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson and many more. He’s had the pleasure of working directly with musicians whom he holds in the highest regard, Paula Fuga, Jah Gumby of Father Psalms Studios, Bambu Station, Ooklah the Moc, John Cruz, Tavana and many others.
