A Musical Experience Renewed

The Band’s Evolution and Impact

Mike + The Mechanics, initially formed in 1985 by Mike Rutherford as a creative outlet separate from Genesis, quickly carved out its own place in music history. The band’s original lineup, featuring vocalists Paul Young and Paul Carrack, enjoyed massive commercial success through the 80s and 90s. Their path was marked by hit singles and albums that resonated globally, culminating in over 10 million album sales.

After a brief hiatus following the untimely death of Paul Young in 2000 and a subsequent pause in activities, the band reformed in 2011 with new members Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar. Their chemistry revitalized the band’s dynamic, leading to new music and successful tours that continued their heritage.
