The night was filled with touching tributes, memories, and photos and video from Mike’s personal collection.
A video montage of Mike’s early days with Alice in Chains played in bittersweet counterpoint to the heartfelt performances.
A mix of new and veteran musicians performed, including Blacklist Union with Tony West, Grind, A Tribute to Alice in Chains, Amanda J. Hardy, Garden of Eden, Sin Circus, Steel Beans, and a stunning surprise performance by The Randy Piper Band.
Thanks for the music, Mike. We miss you.
