About Me

I'm Mike Imbasciani............welcome to my website!

My music journey started when I was five and got my first guitar.

I began to perform professionally when I was eleven years old and at fifteen I put a band together: Mike Imbasciani & his BluezRockerz.

I've been fortunate enough to have some great instructors and mentors including: Lucky Elden, Mike Hovencamp, Elber Perlaza, Dawn Metzner, Danny Shepard, Denise Young, Susan Neikamp, and Sandy Poltarak.

 

My musical inspiration comes from Bob Dylan early on and then, over the years, Eric Clapton, SRV, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Setzer, Robert Johnson, Santana, and Muddy Waters.

 

The genres I perform include Blues, Classic Rock, Folk and

Rock-A-Billy.  

 

I began performing in public locally in Punta Gorda with the Gilchrist Park "Guitar Army".  Over the years, I have performed in many areas of Florida, Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Ohio and Tennessee.

My power trio is extremely busy, performing from the Naples area to Orlando to a growing and supportive fan base.

I am grateful to all of my local fans who support me regularly and also my nationwide and worldwide fans who support me whenever they are visiting the area!
