Sleepy Creek Concert Series Presents: Mike Droho & the Compass Rose

Mike Droho, Anthony Lamarr, and Julia McConahay were drawn together in 2010 to become the dynamic trio they perform as today. Mike Droho & the Compass Rose is a neo-pop, folky-funk trio that incorporates beat boxing, electric violin, and guitar to form a rhythmic foundation for uniquely woven vocal harmonies and original songs. Beats. Strings. Voices.

Audiences find it hard to believe so much sound comes from just three players, but the joy the band experiences while in such a creative space is definitely shared by all. Compass Rose released a new EP “NOT A DJ”in July of 2016 and featured its release at Ragged Roots Music Festival while opening for Kaleo.

Mike Droho & The Compass Rose has performed more than 1200 shows throughout the U.S. over the past decade amassing a dedicated grassroots following that has purchased more than 20,000 of their genre jumping albums and witnessed them perform with such artists as Eric Church, Gavin Degraw, Needtobreath, The Violent Femmes, Trevor Hall, Willy Porter, and Brett Dennen.
