With loyal followings on two continents, “Chicago” Mike Beck’s ecstatic live performances and eclectic 1,000 song repertoire have carried him through two decades and tens of thousands of miles of travel in North America and Europe. Whether performing solo, with his acoustic trio Big Eyed Beans From Venus, or with his European rock ensemble Big Eyed Beans From Fryslân, Mike delivers hundreds of high-energy performances each year. He dedicates several months to the festivals, cafés and theatres of Europe, while continuing to build his audience in North America with frequent nightclub and festival appearances.
Mike’s CD premiered in August 2003 and has garnered ardent reviews and airplay on radio stations throughout the USA, Europe and Japan. Musicians appearing on the CD include members of his USA and European Big Eyed Beans bands, as well as harmonica virtuoso Howard Levy, blues guitar great Larry McCray, and folk diva Nora O’Connor. Mike has performed live on both radio and television, and during the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympics, NBC’s Amy Jacobson produced a feature segment about Mike and his music which aired on the final Friday of the Olympics.
