American Without Prefix
I formed this band in 2007, after being everyone else's ' HARP PLAYER '. I write all our original music..... and we also perform some quality covers....genres from big city blues, swing, funk...anything with passion...harmonica blues with a raw swingin edge! Salty's (Mike Lanigan) hard blowing licks and unique timing provide harmonica flavor enjoyed by all. Salty learned his chops on bands such as J. Geils, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, William Clark, Pat Ramsey, Lee Oscar as well as other artists. Opening or performing with such artists as Herbie Mann, Spyro Gyra, Atlanta Rhythym Section, Starship, Billy Dean, Terry Clark, Tom Gribbon, T.C. Carr, Mark Chesnutt, Tracy Lawrence, Confederate Railroad, Billy Dean, Tracy Byrd, Joe Nichols, Lee Ann Womack, Mark Collie, Jeanie Sealy, Janie Fricke and many more. Salty has the passion, energy and experience for a memorable funky blues swing show.
