Mike 'The Drifter' Flanigin has become one of the shining lights of Texas Blues. It’s been 30 years in the making.
He’s a masterful player of the Hammond B3 organ. Teaming up often with Texas guitar legends Jimmie Vaughan and Billy Gibbons. He has performed onstage with ZZ Top, Steve Miller, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Willie Nelson, Charlie Sexton, Doyle Bramhall II and many others.
Originally from the Denton, Texas…he has been part of the Austin Blues scene since the early 90’s. In 1991 he toured as a guitarist with Los Angeles-based The Red Devils, supporting their Warner Brothers debut King King. In 1992 he joined the Antone's Nightclub house band, backing up many of the original blues legends from Junior Wells to Earl King. It was there that he made a career-defining switch from guitar to Hammond B3 organ.
In 2009, Mike teamed up with Jimmie Vaughan and formed a trio that continues today. The results of which can be heard on ‘Live At C-Boys’, The Jimmie Vaughan Trio featuring Mike Flanigin. In 2013, Flanigin met Billy Gibbons which led to their own trio dates, ZZ Top sit-ins and a collaboration on Billy’s solo album Perfectamundo. Mike Flanigin’s The Drifter album hit in 2015, Rolling Stone, among others, hailed it’s unique vision.
July/2020 brings the release of Flanigin’s latest album, West Texas Blues. Debuting #8 on the Billboard Blues Chart and #1 on the iTunes Blues Chart. It’s 10 cuts of deep blues from the Lone Star State.
