I am a singer/songwriter and band leader who plays guitar... I always thought that I could raise the money to record and tour but I ran into major health problems. Now that that is over I am back playing and doing live gigs and concerts and playing at festivals. I am looking for patrons and superfans who love my music.

My name is Michael Ray Updegrove but I am also known around Oklahoma as "Magic Mike", a nickname that was given to me by an entertainment writer. I used that name with good results for over 40 years. I am a self taught guitarist and started playing at age 12. I have played in 17 states and although I'm known as a blues player I love all kinds of music and my original songs are pretty diverse. Yeh, I can play blues, but I am more of a Blues/Rock guy. I have had some minor success playing locally and around the country in bars and opening for other artists such as B.B King, Lonnie Mack, Clarence Carter, B.B Coleman and backing Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame inductees Doc Blues, Miss Blues, and well known international artists such as Pinetop Perkins. I have been fortunate to perform or jam on stage with Johnny Winter, Lonnie Mack, R.L. Burnside, The B.B. King Band, (without B.B.) Lowell Fulsom and Robert Lockwood Jr. and more.
 
After 40 plus year of covering other people I am ready to show the world my own songs. I hope you like some of my stuff and will give me your support
