LATEST NEWS!

MIKE HARVEY'S HOT CLUB and the self-titled album are nominated for two categories in Offbeat Magazine's Best of the Beat Awards "Best Traditional Jazz Artist" and "Best Traditional Jazz Album." Thanks to the fine musicians in my band: Mark Weliky, Brett Gardner and Nathan Lambertson.

Along with that, many nominations for artists and friends I’ve worked with in Nola Recording Studios or out playing gigs over the years. But a few I had a direct hand in recent projects for: Jonathan Long and his new album produced by Samantha Fish, Shamarr Allen’s album, “True Orleans” and the single “I Love You,” recent releases by The Hot 8 Brass Band (Benny Pete,) Da Truth Brass Band, Tom McDermott, and Jamaican Me Breakfast Club, tracks on a couple of these projects performed by Erica Falls, Ashlin Parker.

ABOUT MIKE

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.
