Mike Filipowitsch has had the pleasure of playing 1000's of shows with Jeff Heisholt (Trews, BNB, Peter Elkas), Jeremy Little (Jason Collett) and Gavin Maguire (Dearly Beloved) in a little band called Burt Neilson Band. In that time he toured Canada more times than he can remember. Mike is back on the road and just finished a record with his good friend Billy Manzik, which was produced by Chris Wardman (tragically Hip, Emme Gryner, Randy Bachman and so on)…


'Billy Manzik' was recorded in Calgary at Rocky Mountain Recording Studio, produced by Rob Smith and Daniel J Coe (Aerosmith, The Trews), and mastered by Mark Chalecki (Cracker, June Carter Cash) at Capitol Records in Hollywood. The 13 tracks include guest performances by Canadian greats like country-blues singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Tim Williams, pedal steel journeyman Charlie Hase, and former Crash Test Dummies violinist, Bill Zulak.


Marc Olszewski is a singer/songwriter from the Hamilton area and was once part of the duo "i&i", a staple of the Hess Village music scene in the mid 1990's. "From early on, I realized that the most important thing in music - for me - was a good song," he says. "That song could be by Richard Thompson or it could be by Blondie.... but without good songs there's not much to build upon." His set at the Casbah Lounge will feature original material as well as a couple of favorites from his personal collection. Look for his current recordings on myspace in the weeks to come!
