About
What started as the Steve and Mike Acoustic Project (the[sma]project) has expanded to Mike pairing up with some of the tri-state's top musicians including Mike McKernan (the[mma]project) and Vincent Bergamo (the[vma]project). All of us have been playing music going on about 30 years now.

From frat houses in college, to touring the four corners of the US, to jamming with various bands in NYC and down the Shore, we've played just about every type of rock, r&b, and pop tune imaginable. And our sound is right for any event or venue. We can play quietly during cocktails and meals, or turn it up when the party gets rocking.

We take our eclectic musical repertoire and versatile style and bring it all down to its basics, creating arrangements that keep it warm, organic and real.

2 instruments. 2 voices. Good times.

Mike and Mike are awesome. They performed both our ceremony and cocktail hour at our wedding and we received tons of compliments from our guests for how much they enjoyed listening to the xma project and the songs that were chosen. Highly, highly recommend.

I just had the [mma] project (mike and mike acoustic) duo play my wife's birthday party and EVERYONE loved them. They sounded amazing; the online recordings and videos don't do them justice. Their vocals and musicianship were fantastic playing a very wide variety of songs. They were extremely professional, easy to work with and reliable. Thank you!!

Thank you guys so much for playing at our wedding cocktail hour! You added the exact "extra" we were looking to add while our guests arrive. Everyone that was there raved about you guys and some mentioned you guys "reminded them of summer" which I thought was a nice compliment! You guys were top notch throughout the entire process and we can't thank you enough!

Mike & Mike really brought our party to life! The song selections were just what we had requested. They played some very catchy and recognizable classics, and our guests frequently got excited by their songs in the repertoire, and were often singing along at our tables. The vocals & harmonies were very good and the combination of acoustic and electric guitars really created a full & professional sound. The guys also did a nice job keeping the sound levels just right - they were never too loud. Had a perfect presence and they added so much to our dad's 75th birthday party! We would definitely hire them again! Thank you so much! Terry's dad loved you guys!
