Michael Harvey has been part of New Orleans vibrant music scene since as long as he can remember.  A versatile instrumentalist, he plays violin and guitar of diverse styles in several working bands.  His own progressive gypsy jazz project, Mike Harvey's Hot Club, (formerly The Courtyard Kings) delighted audiences every Thursday night at the popular Bywater night spot, Bacchanal for 9 years, and is currently booking concert venues and private events.

Michael has performed at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival with The Courtyard Kings and regularly with Orange Kellin’s New Orleans Deluxe Orchestra, an all-star traditional jazz outfit that has taken him to Brazil and other places.  Additionally, he delves into modern Americana music with Marshland and takes on cajun and zydeco styles in The Big Easy Playboys, doing some touring with them.

Besides performing, most of Michael’s musical life is behind the scenes as an accomplished studio engineer.  He started his own studio at nineteen-years-old while working on his Bachelor of Music at Loyola University.  He has engineered various styles of music, including the The Hot 8 Brass Band’s 2013 Grammy nominated album “Life and Times of the Hot 8 Brass Band.”  His studio clients include a who’s who list of New Orleans artists, along with work for indie and major record labels.

While hard at work, Michael was the recipient of the Basin Street scholarship and received his Master of Music in Jazz Studies from The University of New Orleans in 2010, and currently teaches a Music Technologies class as an adjunct professor at Loyola University.
