Mike VanDusen Creates a Mellow and Laid-back Setting
It’s pretty awesome living so close to a bar, because I can literally drive a minute up the road and be at Recovery Room. That’s where one night this month I was able to hear Mike VanDusen play. Mike VanDusen looks like he could be from Nashville; he was wearing plaid
button-downs, jeans, and was sporting a salt and pepper beard. He sat up there and played anything ranging from classic rock to folk music. My husband requested something by Jason Isbell, and he pulled that out like he played it every set. He creates a very mellow and laid-back setting with his singing and playing.
Mike VanDusen not only plays as a solo act, but you can also find him playing with his band, Mouth Hug. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to check out Mouth Hug, but if it’s anything like his solo material, it’s definitely something I’m going to have to experience. You can find Mike playing at Recovery Room once a month, and sometimes twice. If you’re near the area, I would absolutely recommend checking him out.
