Norman’s own, Mike Hosty and Mike “Tic Tac” Byars have been playing great music together for the past decade. Both are seasoned musicians who are in no way afraid to try new tricks as well as new forms of old tricks. A casual sampling of their set might lead one to believe that it would take at least four players to make their sound. However, after a closer look at Mike Hosty’s feet and Mike Byars economical, locomotive like licks on the drums, it becomes apparent that you are witnessing two superb musicians at the top of their game.
It is sure to be another delightful evening in the park with the Hosty Duo performing. For additional Summer Breeze information call the Performing Arts Studio at 405-307-9320.
