Mike McEnery’s short career as a stand-up comedian lasted only three gigs. But by a strange twist of fate, two of these gigs were opening for Jay Leno. Jay’s only advice to Mike was “Write your own material, kid!”
As it turns out, that advice was helpful later in life. After years as the fearless leader of The Jumbo Shrimp Band, and playing way too many Jimmy Buffett covers at pool parties, tiki bars and yacht clubs throughout the Midwest, Mike realized it was time to break out of the grass skirt and coconut bra rut….It was time to finally write his own material and create his own music!
