LEGENDARY SESSION PLAYER

MASTER OF THE  HAMMOND ORGAN

PERFORMED ON ELECTRIC LADYLAND W/ JIMI HENDRIX

AND WITH COUNTLESS REVERED MUSIC ARTISTS

 

Mike Finnigan has toured and has been a session musician for Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, Etta James, Sam Moore, Crosby Stills and Nash, Dave Mason, Buddy Guy, Manhattan Transfer, Taj Mahal, Michael McDonald, Maria Muldaur, Peter Frampton, Cher, Ringo Starr, Leonard Cohen, Tower of Power, Rod Stewart, David Coverdale, Tracy Chapman, Los Lonely Boys, and Bonnie Raitt.

Mike got his start playing professionally in 1964 in Kansas. He then moved to Wichita and travelled the country with The Serfs. It was during a trip to New York City that Mike recorded with Jimi Hendrix, a session that resulted in the legendary release "Electric Ladyland."

In 1972, Michael formed Finnigan and Wood. In 1975, Mike put down roots in Los Angeles where he pursued more group and solo recordings while at the same time touring and recording with Crosby, Stills and Nash, Dave Mason, Etta James, Dr John, Carlos Santana, Joe Cocker, and Bonnie Raitt.

He is twice a winner of a Blues Music Award (formerly W.C. Handy Award) for his work with Taj Mahal.

Finnigan has always been active politically and was, for several years, a regular contributor to the weblog Crooks and Liars.
