Associations & Awards

The DNA of the Songs

The Replicas Musicians reach for the highest levels of performance. Mike’s philosophy is that every song has its own unique DNA that makes it work and ensures that what you’ll hear at your event is as true to the original as possible. Every member of the band embraces this belief and brings that authenticity to his or her performance. Whether performing a tried and true classic, or a new song that just hit the charts, you can be sure it’s live, it’s real, and it’s fun!

Under Mike’s leadership, every genre of music is in the repertoire. The variety ensembles are masters in 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, Pop, Rock, Country, Alternative Rock, Hip Hop, R&B, Reggae, Funk, Jazz, Classic Rock, Ballads, Disco, Top 40, and even some Hair Metal. If a song is not on the list they may learn it just for you. The Replicas Music can also provide additional musicians to expand any ensemble (i.e. Horns, Percussion, more Vocalists). Soloists, duos, trios, and other specialty groups are also available for every type of event.
