Mikey And The Reelers sing fishing songs for fans of fishing.
This high-energy, packed-full-of-fun, country-rock band knows music, entertainment and fishing. Their debut album, Live To Fish, encompases all the fun aspects of the “reel-life”.
The idea for this project was spawned by Mike Cochrane, Peter Elkas and Ryan Myshrall during an annual fishing excursion. The boys wanted to create the perfect soundtrack to any and every fishing trip. An album for fishermen by fishermen. They cast their lines and embarked on the creative process.
who’s been playing off and on with Peter since they were kids growing up in Montreal. Mike “Mikey” Cochrane is a passionate vocalist, songwriter, and acoustic guitar player who’s dream is to combine his two greatest loves: fishing and music.
Mike is the owner of The Salmon House in Westport, Ontario where he holds court daily with customers; spreading his passion for quality music and fish to the community with the same cheer and joy heard in the Reelers’ songs.
Live To Fish is a 9 song release featuring such offerings as the anthemic title-track, as well as ‘Pro Bass Tour’ the rockin’ lament of a passionate weekend-warrior who wishes he could fish on the pro tour. Then there’s Rockin’ And Reelin’, the ultimate theme for the fishin’-musician.
The album takes us all the way from the frigid confines of an ice shack up north in ‘Bottle in The Shack’, to fishing the flats of Key West in ‘Daddy’s Fishin’ Song’. There’s no place these guys won’t fish…or rock!
On stage, Mikey And The Reelers let loose with songs that have the audience laughing, clapping and dancing along to the fishing stories and life experiences that everyone can relate to.
