Michael Baron || Chicago, IL


Looking for kindred spirits to link up with. Check out my BandMix profile to get a feel for where I'm coming from, who I'm looking for, and what I'm trying to do. I'm always up for meeting musicians who are on the same wavelength and seeing what happens.


I'm in the business of providing live entertainment around Chicagoland and beyond. A singing guitarist, I have an extensive list of songs that I play across many genres and decades, though the bulk of which are rock-oriented classics, alternative, etc.  I can safely play for up to 3-4 hours (though have been known to go longer if necessary). If your event/venue needs sound equipment, I've got that covered. Feel free to contact me and we will work something out that fits your needs! 

Available for live performance-setups and as a session player for Bass, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Keys, Ukulele, Cajon/percussion, and Vocals (harmony/bgvs or lead).

I also arrange songs, especially when it comes to harmonies, and do production work.

Always on the lookout for new collaborators, musicians to play with, venues to perform at, tracks to sing, play on, or arrange, and last but not least, co-writes!

Get in touch!

The Story So Far 

I wrote a somewhat long, detailed bio that included many of the most pivotal experiences in my life as it pertains to music.....which is exactly what they tell you NOT to do. Keep it short and concise they say. Touché, but there is still some unique, awesome, and possibly embarrassing stuff that has happened that I think is worth sharing. Maybe one day.
