Performer. Musician. Guitarist. Banjoist. Songwriter.
Mitch is known for his energy and showmanship, connecting and engaging with his audiences, and playing for hours straight without breaks. He creates his shows without a set list, and bases them on the audience reaction and building the energy in the room. Mitch says, “The idea of a three piece band excited me, as every member has to pull their weight…” His players Hank Maninger (bass) and Les James (drums) are top notch. Mitch plays so many gigs that he also has back up players Pam Brandon, Bill MacBeath, Tim Wagar, Ken Owen, Jimmy Touzel, and Timothy Orr for the occasions that he is fortunate enough to work with them.

Hello Friends! 2019 marks a very important milestone, 20 YEARS straight of The Royal Deuces!! I couldn't be happier about this, we are creating our best work yet and this fires me up for the future! This year holds in store TWO new album releases, our long awaited truckin' album, Long Hauls and Close Calls, featuring original numbers as well as some rare classics! The second album will be another instrumental album entitled Risque Riot, all original compositions and arrangements that came about for the sold out show earlier this year, Risque Riot!, a collaboration with world renowned burlesque performer and teacher, Mynx d'Meanor which will be released at Risque Riot 2 on November 15th at the Uptown in Oakland!
Our local residency shows are continuing to go great and we have a tour of Spain later in the fall, October 28 to November 11! We are also booked next year for Viva Las Vegas and the Rockabilly Rave in England! None of this could happen without the constant support of our fans and venues, THANK YOU FOR 20 YEARS!!
