AMR20poster2
The Bottom of the Hill and Thee Parkside are my two favorite places to see bands play. Both venues are small and I apologize that this makes tickets scarce, but I just hate big venues to be honest. The idea of being backstage and away from the fun doesn’t sound appealing to me. Or doing a festival type show with a row of security guards behind a barricade sounds even worse.

This is strictly for fun. NO CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP!! This is for friends/bands gathering together for smiling, reminiscing, dancing, listening, eating, drinking, and being reminded of why we love music in the first place.

I hope that makes sense to everyone here. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at mikeparkmusic@gmail.com
be well and I’ll see you in June.
Peace,MIKE PARK

DOWSING
The first single for the new Dowsing record is here courtesy of the kind folks at Stereogum. These friends from Chicago have written one of the best records I’ve heard in years. Listen to this track and tell me your thoughts.
Peace, MIKE PARK

HI FRIENDS! WE ARE PUTTING OUT THE NEW LP FROM DOWSING… YAY!

Posted on December 4, 2015 by Comments are off

Dear Friends, we are putting out the new album for our new Chicago besties, Dowsing. I first met the band when they were on tour with SUNDIALS and the SIDEKICKS back in Aug of 2014. FF to a few months ago and Erik asked me if AMR would be interested in putting out their new record and I replied “let me hear the new songs”.

And after one listen, I said “YES”! The album is done and it’s fantastic! Check out this announcement video below. I’m so glad to have DOWSING be a part of the AMR family. LP coming Spring 2016.

Peace, mike park
