What do you get when you cross a huge repertoire with impeccable musical taste and an infectious spirit of fun? You get Michael McGill, a singer-guitarist who has played for most of his life, based in Atlanta but performing and recording across the South. His background and approach range from classic to alternative, alt-country, soul and pop.Michael has played and toured with original bands such as Catatonic Kids, the Viceroys and Garlic, cover projects like the glam-tribute High Heels, and hybrid groups like the Omnivores, who did a mix of originals and melodic/British Invasion material. His current band is House of Bacchus.
Michael also plays solo, with a repertoire that has caused more than one listener to refer to him as the “human jukebox” or “human iPod.” As can be seen from the attached list, most listeners in a pub setting can find plenty to enjoy from Michael’s stock of songs. The sound will vary along with the material, as Michael will play perhaps 85-90% acoustic guitar at a typical solo gig, but also pull out the bass and the Les Paul for variety. Crowd participation isn’t rare either, as there are plenty of singalong tunes in his repertoire, and requests are encouraged.
