Java Blend

Mike Droho & The Compass Rose (#109)

Mike Droho & The Compass Rose feature a one-of-a-kind set up of a guitarist/singer accompanied with classically disciplined electric violin and a stage shaking beat boxer.
The band is based in Madison, WI and has been touring the country over the last 3 years.
The group covers much stylistic ground, jumping from genre to genre, drawing comparisons to Jason Mraz, OneRepublic, and Brett Dennen. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
