Mike Needer


     Mike Needer has been playing drums/percussion professionally since 1990.  During his first few years he played with such Baltimore area acts as Justin Sane, Silent Jester, Tinman and even played a couple of years with the popular country band Family Tradition. 
     He took a break in 1995 to start a family.  But, in the summer of 2000 Mike re-entered the Baltimore music scene in an acoustic act called Two Fifths playing mostly dock bars and in the Fells Point/Canton area.  The 2-piece act eventually changed their name to The SOLUTION and still plays about 4-6 shows per month. Mike eventually went on to front the popular classic rock band, Great Train Robbery for almost 2 years.
     Now you can see Mike fronting his own band, My Boy Blue. A 4 piece band playing Rock-n-Country! You will hear songs by artists such as:

Brad Paisly
Chris Young
Eric Church
Grand Funk

John Mellencamp
Keith Urban
Luke Bryan
Motley Crue

Rolling Stones
Stray Cats

Toby Keith
3 Doors Down
The band is a collaboration of well known talent from the Baltimore area. You will see Mike on drums and sharing lead vocals with Jim Matteo (formerly of Wicked Rosie & The Relics) and Stack Jones slappin da bass! Stack comes from the popular dance band, Mary Lou & the Untouchables.
     Mike can also be seen working with such acoustic acts as Charles Parker, Jeff Bradbury, Mook Jones and Sloe Jim Matteo (Tropical Itch).
     Mike also owns and operates The SOLUTION Entertainment, a DJ / Karaoke company.  Although most of his time is spent playing drums or percussion around town, you can find him hosting numerous weddings, bull roasts, anniversaries and a weekly Trivia Show at The Bird River Inn on Wednesday nights.  
     Although this may sound quite busy, Mike is always looking for other acts in need of drums and/or Latin percussion!  Feel free to contact him at 410-935-3000 or

Style: Classic & Modern Rock as well as Modern Country - Full Drum Kit or Acoustic Hybrid (Latin Percussion/Electric Drums)

Members: Mike plays with several Baltimore area acts. He does most of his work with My Boy Blue and Tropical Itch. He can also be seen filling in with other acts such as The Beach Bumz, Charles Parker, Mook Jones, Sloe Jim Matteo or Jeff Bradbury from time to time. Some of Mike's past bands include Client 9, Family Tradition, Great Train Robbery, Justin Sayne, The SOLUTION and Tinman, one of his first bands EVER.
