MEET THE MICHAEL CRAIN BAND
THE MICHAEL CRAIN BAND--from multiple Tacoma Dome shows to the Seattle Space Needle and various fairground events, this versatile and energetic act can deliver a polished and thoroughly entertaining show! In a time where most bands seem to strive for some sort of small stylistic niche, Michael and the Band pride themselves in delivering versatility and variety. They present everything from Elvis Presley to classic 80's pop rock, with a little down home country for two-steppin' and line dancin'. Putting emphasis on you the listener, the group strives to 'keep it rockin' with recognizable cover songs you've all heard and enjoyed. Definitely give the Michael Crain Band a listen!

DAVE CROSTON, (1953-2020) Dave was Tacoma born; lead guitar and musical director for the band. Dave had recorded and produced all of Michael's albums, plus two smooth jazz CD's of his own. His flair on guitar filled a quartet's sound like few others can, and he doubled on vocals, keyboards & saxophone. His 40+ years in the business included everything from Las Vegas shows, Northwest radio and TV sound tracks to just about every imaginable western Washington venue. We lost Dave on July 31, 2020 due to severe illness, but he will always be in our hearts and minds. We'll miss you brother.
MICHAEL CRAIN, Texas born singer, songwriter, guitarist, and consummate entertainer has written and recorded 5 albums to date. Aside from a 2-1/2 year hiatus performing in Nashville, he has built a long standing reputation in the Northwest public and private club circuit as well as corporate engagements. Never the impersonator type, Michael's rich and versatile voice can breath new life into classic Elvis, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond songs, as well as 60's oldies, country and standards.
MIKE CARINI, drummer, and Michael Crain's lifelong musical collaborator. In addition to 25 years with the Crain band, Mike spent serious time in the 80's on the Los Angeles club scene. He can rock n' roll with the best of them.
