Thank you for joining OUT OF THE BLUE featuring Mike Effenberger! Watch live (or later) on our Facebook page.

Mike Effenberger is a recording and performing artist who has been living in the Seacoast since 2007. He received the Young Beacon in Jazz award from New School University in New York City, from which he graduated in 2005. Studying with diverse artists including Jane Ira Bloom, Reggie Workman, Fred Hersch, and Joanne Brackeen, Mike has curated an unmistakably individual voice that draws on gospel, American minimalism, jazz, and 20th century music.

Mike plays throughout New England with a variety of bands including the Titus Abbott Collective, Jazzputin and the Jug Skunks, the secular gospel choir Rock My Soul, OURBIGBAND, Dan Blakeslee, and many others. His group Weird Turn Pro, which focuses on playing his original music, released its third record on Leap Day 2020, "Maul and Mezcal." He also plays nationally with Soggy Po’ Boys.  Mike appears on countless recordings from independent releases to larger labels, including RVNG International and 4AD, and is also active as a producer.
