In their 6th release, MCB again runs thru a gamut of styles from rock to funk to country to pop. Their song writing continues to excel while the polish and execution on this latest disc results in a sonic wonderland that will delight and satisfy your ears. In 2016 MCB took home the prize for "Song of the year" in the Ct Music Awards for the tune "2nd Nature" off their new album Uplift!

The Michael Cleary band is a Hartford institution. They are celebrating their 27th year of making original Groove/Funk/Rock music with a twist. In 2014 MCB took home the award for Best Jam Band in the Ct Music awards. In 2009 MCB was voted Best Jam Band in the Hartford Advocate Readers poll and they are previous winners in the Best Rock and Best Blues category

 They have played with Tower of Power, Little feat, Average White Band, Joan Osbourne, Peter Wolf, NRBQ and countless other regional and national acts.

 Their fifth cd, MCB Five, was released in 2012 and is available on Itunes and CDBaby.com. Their latest CD 'Uplift" is out now on CDBaby and iTunes as well as dozens of other online sites.

 Their shows have been described as great songs, monstrous solos, epic jams, and funky grooves. All in all a diverse, joyous musical stew played and sung by talented musicians who love what they do.
