Mikey''s Imaginary Friends began in 2006 as a solo project of Mikey Kettinger. On his own, he recorded six full-length albums--between Tallahasse, Jacksonville Beach, and Chicago. The music of Mikey''s Imaginary Friends has been featured in films and on the radio in several cities. Mikey collaborated with different guest musicians for Mikey''s Imaginary Friends live shows--making each show entirely unique.
In January 2010, Joe Kapcin and Nate Hoff joined the project, forming the band Mikey''s Imaginary Friends. They overtook the Jacksonville area, creating quite a following, and then taking a brief hiatus over the summer of 2010 in order to record and release their new EP, One Car Garage.
The release of One Car Garage preceded Joe Kapcin leaving Mikey''s Imaginary Friends, as well as the addition of Mel DiLorenzo as the new drummer.
Mikey''s Imaginary Friends is a psychedeletronic art rock band influenced by artists such as Jimi Hendrix Experience, Harvey Danger, Primitive Radio Gods, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Their anthemic pop melodies and colorful instrumentals coincide with ironic (albeit honest) lyrics, reminiscent of "true" punk bands.
The music of Mikey''s Imaginary Friends is only a portion of their art. Their live performance includes a multi-media digital projection of images and video footage to further entrance the flood of dancers--Mikey included. The energy of their shows is never replicated, but they bring a fresh wave of passion with each new set.
"Melt down the canon, then all the standards can swim in an anarchic emission, now let all the instruments of Sgt. Pepper fire at each other while M!key conserves the bombs and smooths it all over dropping the beat. The pervasive drum thread furnishes the music with a heartbeat, it brings the world to life with a manifestation of authenticity that holds down the fearless exploration toward the longitude of fuckin'' good/real tunes. M!key inducts a dozen instruments to the palette, but intoxicates each track primarily with six strings. The instrument composition takes on a minimalist role that legibly and gently perspires an atmospheric comfort inducting a mood that haunts as if it were untouchably real like a fond memory. The delicacy of each track is juxtaposed with raw anger and nostalgic dialogue that sings from the lost direction of growing up, ''The moon twirls around my head, I forgot what I used to care about, and now I''m coughing up the life I used to have.'' Barrels smoke from topics of the surreal pains and smiles we take on while trying to make a life in the world, no doubt." -Peter Jostrand
