Mike Fageros

Guitarist Mike Fageros first started playing guitar at age 13 and studied under the tutilage of Alan Massey who was a local guitar teacher where he was born and raised in Georgetown in Washington, D.C.. After learning the basics, he was then teaching guitar at Alan Massey studios a year later. At age 15 he was able to meet and later study with Roy Buchannan as Roy played at a local venue in Georgetown called the Silver Dollar.

Moving to Baltimore at age 16, he took up residence at one of the most reknown jazz clubs in the area, Bluesette, which was owned and managed by the legendary Art Peyton. Once there, he formed a group known as “Rise” which performed side by side at Bluesette with a group known as “Urch Perch” which has achieved legendary status as a cult group in the Baltimore area. The stay at Bluesette was his introduction to jazz as the club functioned as an after hour jazz club from midnight to 4 AM.
