Michael Bernal ,who goes by Mike or Mike B, was born in Denver City, Texas on January 3, 1974. Grew up in Plains, Texas where he started playing drums with his family, making his debut to the stage in 1984. Moved to Austin a little over 10 years ago from hustling in Lubbock for years. His influences are all over the board from Tejano, Blues, Rock, Funk to the style he plays now. He's shared the stage with the best of them and continues to do so. His way of just sitting in and making any band feel like he's been in the band forever keeps him a first call. He also never checks his watch on stage and appreciates being able to be on stage anytime and making people feel what he feels.
