Drums, backing vocals and Montitudes

Sexy! Beat Mike was born on a March 29th. His parents called him Michael because they knew there would be another Michael in each band he'd play with, so he'd never feel alone. Although we believe he'd have never felt alone anyway because similar to Fruitee Wurlee, Michael Rodeo and DJ Geri, we presume he's got a little monkey too. And a secret. Of course. Who doesn't actually? Beat Mike started in Curlee Wurlee! right after Geri in June 2004. Beat Mike used to play in plenty of other bands in the past and tour a little bit everywhere. We were told he was involved in some stories with some cool US bands but we don't ask him any questions about his wild past... Beat Mike is a fantastic drummer and now a Wurlee. He's also playing in his two other absolutely amazing bands The Hara-Kee-Rees and The Astronauts! Like Michael Rodeo, Beat Mike is a student. Like DJ Geri, Beat Mike is a top DJ. He knows every single beat band from the 60's who ever had one track released somewhere... Beat Mike's first gig with Curlee Wurlee! was on July 9th, 2004 in Stuttgart. Beat Mike is a very funny and heartful person; he's sometimes getting a little bit moody and that's a very interesting, odd and sweet thing to observe, ha ha ha aaaaaaarrggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! Ha ha! ... In other words: "for a drummer, he's quite ok". (...) And this one's unique!!! People like to call him Beat Mike, Mr. Ultra Moody or simply Michael. Long live Mr. Ultra Moody!
