“I have had the opportunity to sing at many different levels most of my childhood to young adult years. I won the Greek talent show at the University of Lincoln, along with other singing accomplishments along the way.”
In 2000, Julie auditioned and began singing with a group of guys whose goal was to play professionally outside the typical garage band scene. The band had a few gigs, but it wasn’t until they pulled in Michael Mohan to play guitar for the band that Mike and the Mix emerged.
“His experience and professionalism in the music world gave the existing band the guidance and knowledge it needed to create a new sound and versatility in music that made Mike and the Mix so successful, especially in the Rockwall area.”
Mike and the Mix eventually branched out to perform large gigs, as well, throughout the Dallas metroplex. However, as with most bands, some of the members moved on.
“We were so fortunate to acquire Jason this past year. His musical talent and personality has added so much to our band. He is a ray of sunshine!! It has been a true blessing to be a part of this band for around 15 years and going strong. I feel so fortunate to have had this opportunity with such great musicians in my lifetime and look forward to many more musical adventures ahead!”
