    I had the pleasure of working with Mike at Verland. He was always such a kind man. He was the type of person who would drop everything in order to help out. He will be greatly missed here. I’m sending prayers and love to his family and friends.

    Mike was so great at talking about music. He had so much passion about it, and you always got his honest opinion about this band, show, album, whatever. Loved going to shows with the guy. Took me to my first Phish show. Did a good number of DSO shows too. Kind, earnest, intelligent. Gonna miss him. Hard. “All the years combine…”
