Mike Lorenz & the WItherbees


MIke Lorenz


Mike Lorenz, guitarist/ composer/ educator, hails from Bethlehem, PA where he is a member of the music faculty at the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts. For over a decade, Mike has kept a busy schedule as a freelancing performer, leading his trio/quartet in performances up-and-down the Northeast Corridor. He holds a steady residency at Tired Hands Brewing Company in Ardmore, PA, one of the top 50 breweries in the world, playing every Thursday night since 2012. His most recent project, Mike Lorenz & the Witherbees, released its first album in August of 2019 and features former student-turned-collaborator Jacqui Armbruster on vocals & viola.


"The musicians bring traditional jazz aplomb and an intrepid sense of musicianship to each of their efforts on the new album, and the results prove both accessible and surprising.."
