Album Notes
After years of touring and recording with Angela Strehli, Charlie Musselwhite, Maria Muldaur and others Bay Area guitarist/vocalist Mike Schermer set out on his own with this refreshing blend of traditional blues and crafty originals. Passionate guitar playing, heartfelt vocals and an overall high level of musicianship combine to create a first set that reveals depth, honesty and total commitment to the genre.


"Mighty Mike Schermer's joyful spirit and love of the blues shines through in every note he plays. He's one of the most extraordinary guitarists of the new generation."
Paul Liberatore
Marin Independent Journal

"Schermer, widely known for his work with the likes of Maria Muldaur and Charlie Musslewhite, demonstrates through this album that he's quite accomplished at writing and singing his own songs...a solo act of depth and
vitality...immense talent...classic playing...infused with the high energy of young and creative hands."
John Aiello
The Electric Review

" of the most underrated guitarists playing the west coast these days, but probably not for long."

Mac McDonald, Monterey Herald

"...on any given night Mike Schermer can hold his own against any electric blues guitarist in the world. His CD First Set is a mind-blowing compendium of his prowess and a damned-impressive intro to a young man who just can't miss. Five Stars!"

Joseph Jordan, Southland Blues

"I've been telling everyone about this CD and playing it just about every week on my radio show...I receive many, many, CDs as a DJ and for talent consideration at the Festival. Most sound the same, and when I'm playing them at work I don't even get out of my chair to see which disc I have on. Well, this one really does make me get out of my chair--and dance! Really a stand-out."
Connie "Crash" Humiston,
Kansas City Blues and Jazz Festival
Blues DJ KKFI 90.1 FM

"When I heard The Mighty Mike Schermer Band live for the first time I immediately wanted my money back...for all the other blues bands I had heard that year!"

Terry Buck KUNI Radio, Cedar Falls IA

"Vintage style, sound...boisterous and talented"

Andy Grigg, Real Blues

"A wonderful guitarist"

Dorothy Hill, Jazz Now/Blues and Boogie

How did I not...
How did I not hear of this guy before now? Great choice of covers. Great originals. No 10 min solos, but every tune has 3 or 4, 30 second riffs that just kill. I'm listening to this CD now, for the third time, and it just gets better with every listen. Excellent band. Guest organist Jim Pugh stands out. Highly recommended. Can't wait to hear his "Next Set"
