VanMike's love for music starts at a young age. When he was a kid he sang famous songs along with the radio and he started playing guitar when he was eight. Michael found out he likes entertaining people and bringing them together through music. When he was twelve years old and went to high school he decided to join the school band. He's learned a lot in that time about playing together and entertainment. Because music was his passion, Michael started the music study Pop and Media in 2007. In the end of 2013 he decided to follow his heart and play his own songs. At this moment he's released his new single 'Denk Groot' and does this under the supervision of Anton Geerts of the Dikdakkers. As soon as he comes on stage the entertainer in him takes over and he gives everyone a night to remember.
