MIKEY V - LEAD/RHYTHM GUITAR VOCALS

MIKE VIZCARRA

LEAD/RHYTHM GUITARS/VOCALS

Mike Vizcarra spent most of his life living around the globe as a military dependent or in the active duty military himself.  He was drawn to music early in life due in large part to becoming a devoted Beatle's fan at an early age.  He received his first guitar at age 9 and started his first band at age 14.  

Mike has played in bands his whole life and loves all stringed instruments.  In addition to guitar, Mike also plays the piano, bass, banjo, violin and ukulele.   Mike's prior projects before joining Anthem include an AC/DC Tribute called "JC/DC"  as well as a Guns n Roses Tribute called "Guns Ain't Roses" all out of Jefferson City, Missouri. 

Mike's playing style is heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Ritchie Blackmore, Johnny Winter and Eddie Van Halen.  He plays mostly a variety of  Fenders and Gibsons through Marshall amplification.
