ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Michael Shapiro was born in San Jose, CA but was raised in Las Vegas, NV. In 2000 he moved to Portland, OR, followed by a move to San Rafael, CA in 2006. As of April 2015, he’s back living in Las Vegas fronting the Band/Show, Reckless In Vegas.
Music has been a constant throughout his entire life. He picked up his first guitar at age 13 and trained hard in guitar, vocals, piano and trumpet and attuned his ear to classical opera as well as rock. A chance encounter with a family friend struck the right cord and paved Shapiro’s way into music. At age 16, he had the opportunity to jam with Bruce Springsteen. The rocker’s energetic marathon performances spurred Shapiro to develop a taste for a raucous stage presence. After stints in various cover bands in his teens, Shapiro formed the band Trip, released 3 albums and toured. Being part of the VH1 Rock Across America Tour, Trip opened for artists such as Edwin McCain, Duncan Sheik, The Romantics, and Cheap Trick. It was during an ill-fated gig in 2003 while out on tour opening for Great White when a tragic fire struck, that moved Shapiro to deeply reflect on life’s vagaries and whims. This experience inspired a prolific writing period. In 2006, he recorded and released his first solo album. The first single off the album, “Hope”, received a warm radio welcome earning it’s way to the number 3 most added song in the US at 1100 spins per week. This success landed Michael on a National tour opening for the multi-platinum selling band Live.
In 2008, after moving to the SF Bay Area, Michael formed Reckless In Vegas. Releasing their first album with multi-platinum Producer Dan Shea(Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Santana, Jessica Simpson, Tom Jones/Paul Anka), followed by a second album in 2011 with Producer Sylvia Massy(Undertow, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool, Johnny Cash, System of a Down). Returning to Producer Dan Shea in 2013 with a Vegas concept album and show, Reckless In Vegas released their third album featuring original, modern rock arrangements of classic vintage Las Vegas songs from artist such as Sinatra, Dean Martin, Frankie Valli, Sonny & Cher, Sammy Davis Jr., and more. In April 2017 he joined the cast of The World’s Greatest Rock Show at The Stratosphere performing as Bruce Springsteen.
“At the age of 36 I found myself in the painful grip of 23 years of drug, alcohol, love, and sex addiction, but was gifted with a moment of clarity. A crystal clear turning point realizing if I continued on that path, I would die. I wanted to live and for the 5th time in 6 years, I reached out for help, this time with complete surrender. I became desperate enough to become wholeheartedly open minded, willing, and honest about my situation, as if my life depended on it, because it did. I am grateful every moment, to truly be in recovery. My relationship with my higher power and my sobriety will always be my number one priority.”
Currently Michael is thoroughly enjoying life in Las Vegas with his wife, JoLae, and their furry feathered family, dogs Shappy and Melvin Harvey, and 5 chickens, Barbara Q, Nugget, Fingers, Marsala, and Piccata, while refocusing his energies on RIV and their new TV Reality series Reckless In Vegas’ Toast and Jam.
Shapiro has toured all over the United States, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, and has done it all CLEAN AND SOBER!
