The North Fork Duo: Mike Gwinn and David Snider

The Sherbino welcomes The North Fork Duo:  Mike Gwinn and David Snider to celebrate Noel Night.

Mike Gwinn's "Flyers" have performed all over Western Colorado and have been featured at the Telluride Jazz Celebration, Ride the Rockies, The Mountain Harvest Festival, KAFM Radio Room Live CD Recording Concert and many other club, concert and performance venues.

Mike Gwinn hails from the fertile musical ground of Paonia, CO.  He moved there in 2003 when Mike and his lovely wife, Patty, relocated to Colorado from Southern California. Mike started performing at one of the small venues in town; that solo journey continues, but soon the desire to collaborate with other musicians produced the first band “The Free Radicals”, a loose and changing collective of talented musicians, which eventually evolved into the current lineup: Mike Gwinn, band leader, guitar and vocals – John White, alto sax, bass and flute – Willy Wright, tenor sax and flute – Tony Peters, trombone and bass – Justin Hess, drums.

Mike's "Flyers" have performed all over Western Colorado and have been featured at the Telluride Jazz Celebration, Ride the Rockies, The Mountain Harvest Festival, KAFM Radio Room Live CD Recording Concert and many other club, concert and performance venues. The band has recorded two high-powered CD’s “Flying Home” & “Model Citizens” on the Flying Guitar label, Mr. Jake Publishing.

The music has American Songbook Jazz Standards at its foundation, but goes way beyond that in many directions including: Rock, Pop, Reggae and Ballad featuring original songwriting by Mike Gwinn and inventive arrangements, searing solo’s and a lively musical dialogue between all players. With an extensive songlist that ranges from Miles to Motown, Chuck Berry to Steely Dan, Rogers & Hart to Robin Ford The North Fork Flyers have something for everyone!
