Don Middlebrook – Michigan’s Resident Beach Boy– Starting in 1991, Don Middlebrook and Living Soul began a musical quest up and down the west coast of Michigan with little idea of where it might lead. Always directed by a new song, a new adventure, and an occasional cold beer; what began as fun and frolic has turned into twenty-one years of travel and musical bliss. Looking back over those last twenty-one years, eight CDs have been recorded and over 150 dates played each year. Airplay has become commonplace, like that found at WCSX FM in Detroit, and Internet web play has had international activity. Don and the band have performed on national radio with Mitch Albom and G. Gordon Liddy, been on PBS’s Backstage Pass, and toured and recorded for three years with Greg "Fingers" Taylor, Jimmy Buffett's harmonica player of twenty-six years. Don has opened for nationally acclaimed acts such as: Reba McEntire, Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oats, Jefferson Starship, Meatloaf, and Lynyrd Skynard.
