MIKE BISHOP

Mike is a bass player, singer and songwiter living in Rockport, MA. He has performed and recorded in the area for many years. He incorporates many musical styles into the songs that he writes and appreciates all styles of music. Soul music has been a favorite from the time that he first picked up the bass. You will hear many stylistic influences, though, from r&b, rock, latin, blues and even a touch of jazz and reggae! One of the key elements of his music is 3 part harmony vocals, which were so prominent in soul music.

Mike has also performed in New York, New Jersey and all across the 6 state New England region as well as in Canada. He has been fortunate to perform in some iconic venues like CBGB's in New York City and Daryl's House Club (owned by Daryl Hall) in New York state. He was a member of the popular local band "Knots & Crosses" in the past and also currently performs with the band "Afterfab." Mike's new band, the "Mike Bishop Group" features some great, talented musicians and that strong vocal harmony.

About 17 miles north of Boston, award-winning 9 Wallis is a gorgeous, fully restored, historic location conveniently situated in the heart of Downtown Beverly's Arts District at 9 Wallis Street, right next to the Larcom Theatre -- less than half a mile from the Beverly Depot rail station and 3 miles from Route 128, with plenty of nearby parking (see map).

In April 2017, after 4 years of presenting over a hundred shows at Beverly's Larcom Theatre (featuring Grammy-winners, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers and platinum recording artist), gimmeLIVE's owners Peter and Vickie Van Ness, transformed 9 Wallis into the most intimate, elegant listening room north of Boston with comfortable seating at tables, plus food & beverage service offering fine wines, local craft beers, specialty cocktails (featuring local distilleries and all-natural juices) and top-shelf spirits.

In August 2018, Peter and Vickie were presented with the Boston Blues Society's Keeping the Blues Alive Award for their work at 9 Wallis.

Because of its beautifully restored, tremendously flexible space with the best dance floor on Boston's North Shore, 9 Wallis has become a favorite venue for fundraisers, private parties and corporate events. Local charities have raised thousands of dollars at 9 Wallis (see examples). With world-class entertainment, an event can begin as a cocktail party or fully seated dinner...then transform into a nightclub-style dance party with concert quality sound and stage lighting.
