Mikey Thunder Bio

Mikey Thunder likes to party. But more than that, Mikey Thunder just so happens
to be the party. Thunder spins a genre-blending, bass-driven partyrock, fusing
banging electronic beats with funk, hip-hop, soul, jazz, blues, swing, reggae and
anything else the party may call for on the fly. With 19 years in the game, he's
mastered the art of improvisation with an uncanny ability to work with and rework
the vibe of the party with precision. If you’re a true connoisseur of the Colorado
music scene, you’ve seen Mikey share the stage with any number of your
favorite artists- no matter the genre.

It all began for Mikey at the age of 15 when he discovered DJing in Springfield ,
Mass. Thru friends older brother's record collections and the Hiphop scene in the
city. From there he moved up to Burlington Vt. and immersed himself in the
diverse musical culture. In the fall of 1999, he relocated to the mountains of
Jackson Hole where he was soon kidnapped by Michael Franti and Spearhead
for the Stay Human Tour. After opening for Spearhead in Jackson Hole, Thunder
was handpicked by Michael Franti to open the rest of the tour, where he mixed
beats into their sets, during set break, and scratched with their beatboxer,
Radioactive.

After the Spearhead tour Mikey relocated to Boulder and continued to pursue his
musical career. At that time Thunder also was an Atari playing stuntman/ DJ in
the band Sonar. The band shared the stage with the Wailers at the Winter
Olympics in Salt Lake City, the String Cheese Incident, and played Hightimes
Magazine’s SXSW party, and the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. In the fall of 2009
Mikey joined the Pretty Lights crew, opened for over 30 shows on their tours and
performed cuts on the Making Up a Changing Mind EP, released in 2010. He
also has played the sold out Red Rocks Amphitheater runs with PL in
2012/13/14.

Since that time, he has made his presence known in every single facet of the
Colorado music industry. Over the years he has shared the stage with an
extremely diverse range of musicians, including (but certainly not limited to):
Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, The Disco Biscuits, Boombox, Soul Live, Lettuce,
The Motet, Michal Menert, Nightmares on Wax, Mr. Scruff, DJ Krush, Bonobo, Z
Trip, DJ Qbert, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Jurassic 5, Slick Rick, Method Man,
Raekwon, Ghostface killa, Red Man, Juicy J, and Big Boi of Outkast. Additionally,
he has been prominently featured on such festivals as Shambhala, Sonic Bloom,
Snowball, Global Dance Festival, and many others.

Mikey Thunder’s true talent lies in his versatility. Every Thunder performance
presents something familiar in an entirely unfamiliar way, as well as something
unfamiliar presented in a way that is immediately recognizable as Thunder.
