The Plaza Live
by Michelle Wilson of Rock Legends Photographers
Mike & The Mechanics absolutely rocked The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida with a blazing, one hour-and-forty minute set of all their hits, including a few Genesis tunes. Skipping an opener and taking the stage at 8pm, the band played straight through until 9:40pm, offering a warm, inviting vibe of genuine camaraderie among the members. Original Genesis bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford was backed on this tour by co-lead vocalists Tim “The Power” Howar, Andrew Roachford (keys), Anthony Drennan (guitar/bass), Gary Wallis (drums/percussions) and Toby Chapman (keys/bass).
