Tahoe Wabo Cinco de Mayo weekend

Hey everybody!! It's been awhile since my last post, so I thought I would let you know what's been going on lately. Those of you who were on the Hagar cruise ship party the other month know that I put a little jam together with Vic Johnson and Dave Lauser(calling it the "M.A. Express"). Well we had a blast with it and I decided to do it again, this time opening up for Sam at the Tahoe Wabo on Cinco de Mayo weekend.
Well, Sammy decided to get sick and had to postpone the show until next month. I still wanted to go up there, so I had an idea to play anyway. I called Vic and J.D.( who has been playing percussion with Sam) and asked if they were into it. We lenghtened the set and played the cantina on May 5th(Cinco de Drink-O). OH MY GOD...WHAT A BLAST!! To everyone who was there..."THANK-YOU"!! I will be posting a writeup of the nite on my website this week with lots of pictures and our set list. We had so much fun, we will be doing it again next month when Sammy does the makeup show, except this time it will be outdoors at Harrahs in Lake Tahoe. I hope to see you all out there...Michael P.S.( we're going to F---in' BASH!!!)

When Sammy cancelled, it was a real downer, but then you played and saved the day. Thank you for such a great show and for taking a picture with me before the show. You are a class act.

We were on the cruise in March, the whole ship rocked to the Michael Anthony Express! We knew already how awesome the Cinco de Cabo concert would be, and it was!! Like Jeanette said, thank you so much for coming and being a part of all the REDhead Tahoe festivities. Everybody loved it!!!

My husband and I saw you perform at the Awards in SF. "Rock Candy" with Ronnie Montrose, Dave, and Eric was soooo good!! When the gospel group joined in to sing "Eagles Fly", it was amazing!!!

We had made the journey from South Bend, IN to see Sammy and were devastated when we found out Friday night that he had cancelled the shows. Well, we didn't pout for long! Saturday nights show at the Tahoe Wabo was f**kin' awesome!!! The energy in the room was unexplainable and will be a show I will never forget!! Thanks for being there Mike!! You ROCK!!

Hey Mikey - thanks for the show on Saturday night (June 16). You, Vic and JD were AWESOME! One question though... were you hungover on Sunday? Ha! You must have had 8 or 9 shots in about 90 minutes... unreal my friend. That performance was as good as the music!! Sunday was great too! Thanks for taking a picture with me at the Cantina - and thanks for being so cool when we ran into you at the Reno airport. You're a class act!

Mike. I have been a fan since 1982. I was never a big fan of Sammy. He is a great musician but not for me. I waited 22 years for the Roth reuinion. I went and i really missed you. It is not the same without you. You have "taken the high road". Good for you. You really impressed me with your mature acts. I don't think everyone in VH has acted the way you have. Best of luck to you. The Roth years are not complete with out the Anthony years. You are the man!
