I suppose many Big Town Playboys fans were upset and sad about the leaving of frontman Mike Sanchez in December 1999. Anyway, you have been wise enough to come here to check out how and what he's doing now. Mike is doing a lot solo stuff now, including a kind of big band thing, as well he became a full-time member of Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings.
This website offers various information and material, also it includes some stuff I took from my Big Town Playboys pages. New info etc will be added when available, so if you've got material like photos, articles, reviews, reports or whatever is related to Mike (and the BTP's), I would like you to Send an E-Mail.
For always up-to-date news and tourdates, for galleries of photos and many reviews I highly recommend to pay a visit to Mike's very own official website at www.mikesanchez.co.uk.
Thanks a lot,

+++ January 2002: Mike returned to Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings but also continues doing his own shows. Actual tour dates are available at www.mikesanchez.co.uk. +++ November 2001: After I saw Mike's new video I only can highly recommend it! A well created and presented mix of clips, documenting Mike's musical history and steps. It includes some really rare stuff and is truly entertaining. It is not only the perfect christmas gift for Sanchez fans, but also it will please everyone who likes some proper Rock'n'Roll. Visit Mike's official WebSite to order your copy. +++ July 25, 2001: Mike has got a video out now with material from various live shows. +++ May 2001: Bill Wyman has recruited Mike into his "Rhythm Kings". Currently they are touring around various countries. +++ January 2001: Mike finishes a great new album with his new UK band. Release is scheduled for February. Get prepared for some hot stuff! To get an imagination on what's to expect, listen to some samples of Someday / Tell Me Who / Blue Boy / Hurtin' Inside / Sapphire / Wildcat Tamer / Shame, Shame, Shame / Fast Train - freshly fetched from Mike's official WebSite! +++ Mike has been asked to guest with The Big Six at a one off show in Japan in August 2001. +++ December 25, 2000: A new album will be released in Spring 2000. Mike wants to add some more songs as usually planned. +++ October 25, 2000: Mike is doing the finishing touches to a great new rockin' album with his brand new band featuring the legendary Andy Silvester on guitar, Al Gare (King Pleasure & The Bisquit Boys) on double bass and BTP's drummer Mark Morgan. This is undoubtedly the most authentic collection of exciting Rock'n'Roll covers that Mike has been involved in since the classic Jeff Beck "Crazy Legs" album from 1993. To not miss the release date (supposedly end of November) watch the discography. +++ October 05, 2000: Mike has got a brandnew website up at www.mikesanchez.co.uk - the REAL official site, of course. Tons of really great photos, sound clips and lots of other stuff to check out! So hurry - hurry - hurry - click - click - click... - Hey, but don't forget to return to this page too some time! ;-) +++
