Born and raised in New York City, Mitch, a self-taught musician, began performing
professionally in 1971 in Ithaca, N.Y., but soon moved on to Chicago where his original
jazz and blues compositions blended with the Latin rhythm section of the "New Earth Rhythm Band".
They were regulars on the home-grown music scene at the Quiet Knight, appearing with the likes of Levon Helm and Jan Hammer. Mitch's original composition was featured on "The Best of Chicago" LP in 1977. Later, joining forces with Long Island guitarist Mike Barnett, they opened shows and jammed with blues legends Muddy Waters, B.B King, Albert King, Paul Butterfield, and Johnny Winter. His next stop was as a member of the legendary "Buster And The Soul Brothers,"
where his harmonica became part of the horn section and he occasionally stepped out front to thrill
audiences from NYC to Montauk with his dynamic vocals. Recently he has played the Long Beach Jazz Fest & the Rock Hill SC blues Fest.

Hey Mitch, would you be interested in giving some skype lessons? I am an accomplished blues player on harp with a background in jazz and would like to start playing jazz on the harp and would love it you would teach me. Please email at onsetmusic@gmail.com if so. Thank you
