Mike the Music Man

Navy veteran launches a comeback in Long Beach

Multi-instrumentalist and Navy veteran Mike McGee aka Mike the Music Man arrived at the Villages at Cabrillo in Long Beach about a month ago without instruments or relationships with local musicians. HomeFront Rising is helping him obtain equipment and connections. The first acquisition is a Yamaha 12-string guitar donated by Grace First Presbyterian Church. Mike has been teaching himself how to play it at Long Beach Coffee & Tea, a veteran-owned epicenter in downtown Long Beach.
