Mike McKay Band and Melanie Lynx LIVE at the Palace Theatre
A singer/songwriter from Syracuse, NY, Mike McKay is a musician that will not be ignored. He began writing and performing music in the summer of 2008 to local venues, and quickly became addicted to the high of playing to bigger and bigger crowds. His passion for the music he creates runs deep and true and within minutes of him playing you quickly become drawn into the power and intensity that he brings with him to the stage.
Behind the powerful frontman lies an equally incredible band; a who's who of Central New York musicians that have all joined together to create an unstoppable force.
Dan Deming, a very successful solo singer/songwriter in his own right, joined forces with Mike in 2011 to provide harmonies and consistency with his brilliant and intricate rhythm guitar work.
Brandon Morse, a journeyman who found his permanent home driving the dance inducing beats that ignite the flame in the audience the MMB draws all over the Northeast. Brandon also joined the band in 2011.
Justin Costello, a child prodigy now 18 years old is a gifted guitarist with a sixth sense for making songs come alive with melody from the instrumentalists. Justin joined the band early 2011.
Brian Cooney is a classically trained guitarist, converted into a Bassist for this band. The result are bass lines that flow beautifully throughout every song hand crafted by the band. Brian has been a member of the Mike McKay Band since 2011.
Melanie Lynx merges the pop songwriting of Katy Perry with the live show energy of Dave Grohl. After performing 350+ shows as the lead singer of New England's premier wedding band, as well as performances at the Apollo Theater, Carnegie Hall, and making it onto Season 10 of American Idol, Melanie guarantees to entertain, from the moment she walks on stage to when you're humming her hooks on your car ride home.
A third, opening band is TBA.
