The Mike Bochoff Band released their EP Distractions and quickly rose on the iTunes Top 200 Releases – Canada Pop Chart from #96 to #23 over the weekend. Released on Friday, January 6th, Distractions is an earnest display of the band’s versatility within the pop music pantheon, underscored with the electrifying highs of “Glory”, the scathing-yet-compassionate “Sons of America” and the brooding somber lows of the title-track “Distractions”.
Whether performing with a power-pop trio or solo, Mike Bochoff (sounds like Bah-Choff) throws down a menagerie of catchy choruses and wry observations with authority and a healthy dash of sly humor. His highly-engaging performances have seen him grace stages all over North America supporting past efforts …in the Service of Madness (2007), Horror Culture (2009) and Start ‘Em Young (2014). The Mike Bochoff Band is rounded out with Mat Budreski (drums, vocals) and Stephen Hare (keys, vocals).
