About The Maz Mitrenko Band
Although The Maz Mitrenko Band was formed in 2006, it’s roots go back a lot further.
Both during his 80’s stint with The Handsome Beasts and his 12 years with The Trevor Burton band, Maz was to be found on his nights off sitting in at local venues jamming the blues that he loves. During the 90’s he also started making a yearly pilgrimage to many parts of the USA – especially the south where the music he loves came from. During these travels he played many backwater jams and made many new friends among the musicians that he met.
These experiences were what made Maz decide that he had to do his own thing and in 2005 he left Trevor (with no hard feelings) and formed the first Maz Mitrenko band.
By 2006 he had teamed up with Baz Newey (bass) and Dave Tandy (drums) to produce the band’s 1st CD “Comin’ Thro’” and Maz started touring under his own name for the first time.
By 2008 Baz and Dave had been replaced by Phil Brittle (drums) and Paul Turner (bass) and together they started writing for a new CD
By 2010 the band had released the 2nd CD “And Then Some” and become well known on the midlands circuit. Then, in the summer of that year, they undertook their first US tour taking in shows in Nashville, Memphis, Alabama and Clarksdale, Mississippi.
During this tour they performed in Nashville alongside Maz’s good friend Doug “Blind Willie” Jones, Johnny Neel of The Allman Brothers Band and Shaun Murphy of Little Feat .
Returning to the UK they continued performing including appearances on the British Stage at The Great R’n’B festival in Colne and at The Upton Blues festival
In 2013 Paul Turner decided to take a break from playing and, after a series of auditions, new bass player Pete Vickers was hired.
With the new line up now writing and rehearsing brand new material for a new live show and a new CD, our story is up to date. Stay tuned!
