Mike Ruggles - Guitar

Mike Ruggles  Guitar Mike Ruggles began classical accordion lessons as a child.

"I hated that accordion, the damned thing didn't have an amplifier". Rock and roll bands in high school followed, and eventually Mike founded "The Cruizers" a northwest favorite he performed with for a decade. "The Cruizers were pretty much backround noise for a riot", he said, referring to the mosh-pit stage diving antics of the fans at the time.

Later there was a stint as guitarist for a Beatles tribute band with future Atomic Jive drummer Bob Briley. "I played "Yeah,Yeah,Yeah songs until it became No,No, No More already". Time for something really different.

Playing with Atomic Jive is where he's at, and where he intends to stay. " It's incredible to be able to play with such talented people,and we're just getting started."
