Act Information

Biography

Mikey Votano reinvents popular hits & breathes new life to your favourite Swing, Soul & Rock ’n’ Roll classics with his own brand of modern vintage.  As vocalist, who plays a mean saxophone & piano, Mikey has spent better part of two decades travelling the globe fronting orchestras, performing new music festivals & touring his rock ’n’ roll cabaret shows on land and sea.

Mikey grew up the Chuck Berry way, albeit on saxophone rather than guitar, cutting his teeth in various jazz bands across his hometown of Sydney, Australia.  It was there, packed onto tiny stages, sandwiched between musicians giving their all for excited rooms, that his love for music & its ability to bring joy brought the realization that this is how he wanted to spend his life.

A trained orchestra conductor, former university lecture, radio presenter & firm believer that pineapple does NOT belong on a pizza, Mikey uses his entire bag of tricks to craft authentic, exciting, full of energy stage shows that blur the lines between large scale concerts, theatre shows & intimate cabarets.

Most recently Mikey splits his time between the UK & Australia having just released his 8th single, a vintage reimagining of a Mariah Carey classic backed by 20-piece jazz orchestra, continues to raise awareness for mental health issues & neurodevelopment disorders & preforming his dual rock ’n’ roll cabaret shows.

Mikey’s onboard shows ‘Swing, Soul & Rock ’n’ Roll’ & ‘Mikey Votano Live’ incorporate fresh arrangements, incredible musicianship, heartfelt stories, but mostly, they’re just a whole heap of fun.
