THE MICHAEL D. BAND
The Michael D. Band is a nationally touring independent country band based out of Lexington, Kentucky. Playing over 200 shows a year, the band performs from Portland, OR to Key West, FL and everywhere in between. Focused on their high-energy stage show and multi-part harmonies, they have gained a large and faithful fan base through constant touring over the past several years.
The Michael D. Band has performed several shows for the Professional Bull Riders, Inc. Tour including the World Championships in Las Vegas, NV the past two years, sponsored by Cooper Tire, and has become a staple band at PBR events. They have performed with numerous nationally touring Country and Rock & Roll acts over the past few years, and play at several fairs and festivals throughout the United States.
The band’s latest album, “ROWDY” is a driving and edgy record with breakout songs “Thinkin’ About You” and “Let’s Get Rowdy”, along with fan-favorite “Black Dress”. The band also has a great deal of studio experience, which enabled them to record, produce, engineer, and master the entire album themselves. This current project promises to give a polished new flare to country music. “We are extremely excited about this record. Our fans all over the country have been asking for it for a long time now, but we took the past year to make sure the material was right before we decided to release the album.”
With aggressive lead guitars and a rock solid rhythm section, their energetic performances appeal to audiences young and old. With captivating lyrics, extraordinary harmonies and driving grooves, The Michael D. Band delivers a unique show fusing country and rock in an innovative way, which excites the crowd and leaves them screaming for more.

New Album In The Works
That’s right MDB fans; after touring off our debut album “Rowdy” for the past year and a half, we are finally putting together some material for our next album. We have about half of the material ready, and continue to work on new songs for the album each week. We hope to have the upcoming album completed by the start of summer and available online and at our shows.
We have started playing our new songs at our shows, so and can’t wait to hear your feedback on the new material.
This next record will have a more eclectic and modern sound to it, and we are all very excited about what we have worked up so far. We will keep you posted as we progress through the recording process in the next few months. Can’t wait for you all to hear it.
