As Four-time International Blues Challenge semi-finalists, Mike Westcott’s Blues On Board continue to explore and expand the boundaries of the hard-driving blues rock tradition. These 2007 and 2005 Washington Area Music Association’s “Best Blues Band” nominees enjoy a well-deserved reputation for consistently delivering powerful, memorable live performances - whether for 50 patrons in an intimate venue or for 350,000 raucous festival-goers. Mike’s expert songwriting, soulful voice and virtuoso guitar work remain the trademark of this rising force in the east-coast music scene. While unafraid to display the influence of those guitar greats that have gone before him, Mike Westcott’s music has something original to say, and he does so with a style and energy that is distinctly his own. Mike has had the honor of playing with many outstanding musicians. Such as, Glenn Ferracone, Paul Klinefelter, Jay Turner, Timm Bierry, Cleveland Whele, Waverly Milor, Dave Westcott, Andrew Westcott, Phil Westcott, Gene Monroe, Billy Herrington, Brian Costantino, Mike Odonnell, Steve Wolf Cresence, Spence Leckliter, David Johnson, and more to come.
