MIKE VISAGGIO is a 56-year-old multi-keyboardist, composer and vocalist living in Richmond, VA, USA.
He began playing at age 9, and at 16 began playing in rock bands in the New York area, forming a progressive rock/jazz-fusion group in 1970
called Randori, that endured until 1975. That group recorded in Media Sound Studio with Bob Walters executive producer, but failed to land a
record deal. During these years Mike attended Queens College in Flushing (NYC) and majored in music, finding his influences in the music of The Young Rascals and Lee Michaels, then having his music world turned upside down by Yes, Genesis and Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
In 1975 Mike joined up with singer-songwriter Billy Falcon and bass guitarist Ed Gagliardi (who went on to star with Foreigner) and recorded three LP's and an EP with Billy Falcon's Burning Rose between 1975
and 1981. He found real Christianity in 1978 and his perspective onlife would never be the same. When he and Falcon parted company he joined a Christian rock group called Innervision, and later played
with another Christian group, The Ambassadors, both in New York. Mike can be seen on the cover of the "Billy Falcon's Burning Rose" LP at www.BillyFalcon.com.
A period of almost twenty years intervened during which Mike was out of music supporting his family driving 18-wheelers all over America. He resumed his passion formusic in 2000. After three bands came and went (including TheStrokers, with whom he recorded a CD in 2003) he decided to produce and record a solo CD to be named Starship Universe.
It blends classic rock, prog rock, new age and symphonic styled with spiritual lyrical themes. He has been sought after for recording sessions in Richmond. In late 2007 Mike's current band, KINETIC ELEMENT, was formed to perform Starship Universe and new original progressive rock songs when Mike was selected for the 2006 Pop Montreal festival, which the boys played in 2007. They recorded an EP, The Powered By Light Suite, in spring 2008.
Mike plays a five-keyboard setup and specializes in the Hammond B-3 sound. His influences are the great prog rock acts of the 70's like Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. He is fluent and comfortable in most
musical styles but excels in classic rock, prog rock, blues and some jazz idioms. He also has a love for baroque pipe organ music deriving from his studies with Professor Paul Maynard at Queens College.
Mike continues to reside in Richmond with his wife Eugenia.
