On Tuesday, March 7, South Floridians will be able to take a musical trip back in time to the 1960's when The Yardbirds and Vanilla Fudge take the stage to play the Coral Springs Center For The Arts.


In advance of their performance, Myke Scavone of the The Yardbirds took time out of his busy touring schedule to talk a bit with


Scavone is many things. He is a vocalist, a harmonica player, a drummer, and an all- around nice guy. Calling form his home in New Jersey, Myke talked about how it all got it started for him. When he was around 11 years old, he began to play the drums and develop his musical talent.


At that time, he was listening to guys like Bo Diddley, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry. These were the artist's that moved him and made him want to pursue a career in Music. The story started with The Ascots. The band formed in Plainfield, New Jersey in the Fall of 1964. Finally settling on the lineup of Myke Scavone, Mike Farina (from Ascots), with Richie Heyman, Mike Caruso, and Willy Kirchofer from Apollos, they changed their name to The Doughboys in 1966.


Fast-forward to present time and you will find that Myke Scavone is now a member of the legendary band, The Yardbirds. I have never seen any version of The Yardbirds perform live in concert before. When asked about what fans can expect attending one of their concerts, Scavone added that it is "Nothing like you have ever seen before. It is an amazing show". Scavone is a straight-forward guy that loves music. His passion is in words and music and he emits a coolness that is admired. Can't wait to meet Myke Scavone and his band of "Birds", and take an auditory trip back to where it all began.
