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! We just celebrated the release of our latest album, Risque Riot, at our SOLD OUT show Risque Riot 2 at the Uptown Nightclub in Oakland! What an amazing night, a huge thanks to all of our Kickstarter backers, Mynx d'Meanor, who did the work of 5 people to make the show happen, Jeff Moon, and all of our friends and fans who came out!
The album is now available for purchase here and at our shows as well as our online store which will opening up very soon!
Our local residency shows are continuing to go great and the Spain tour was a huge success! I recorded 7 songs, 2 of which I wrote on the plane ride over there, with the Spanish band The Kaw-Ligas for release on the wonderful Spanish label Sleazy Records!
We are also booked next year in April for Viva Las Vegas and in June for the Rockabilly Rave in England! None of this could happen without the constant support of our fans and venues, THANK YOU FOR 20 YEARS!!
