For as long as he can remember, the blues has been in Mike "MBrad" Bradley’s soul. Whether it was the rockabilly sounds of Elvis and Johnny Cash or the countryfied rock of Hank Williams, Jr. and Lynyrd Skynyd, Mike has loved southern rock blues. After 25 years of performing solo, he recruited a collection of outstanding musicians with over 100 years of music experience. In addition to performing original music and classic blues, the band plays a variety of blues based music from Chuck Berry to Pink Floyd. Mike along with Sean Ozee, Mike Duggins, Les Cargill and Jeff Hart provide fun, good time ROCKINCOUNTRYBLUES.
Price Range: $400.00 and up

What to Expect
When you come to an Embrad show, don't expect explosions or laser shows (we would love to do that but that stuff is really expensive). Expect fun, blues based rock and roll. No fuss, no frills. Expect original music as well as covers performed with the band's special touch. Expect the #1 blues band in OKC (according to ReverbNation, and our wives). Expect the unexpected. Seriously, no one knows what Mike will do on stage. Book us and see what he does next.
Here is the story of Embrad, formerly Mike Bradley and the Bricktown Mafia. Some of it is actually true. For as long as he can remember, the blues has been in Mike “MBrad” Bradley’s soul. While his musicianship is imbedded in the blues, Mike has never been limited by genres, writing a variety of songs with rock and country vibes. His first album entitled “Kewl Water” was released in March, 2016. After performing solo for over 25 years, it was time to share the fun. Mike found an extraordinary bassist and exceptional drummer in the strangest of places, church. Sean Ozee, the youngest member of the band, has been a theatre performer, voice artist and musician for most of his life. Sean provided the bass as well as background vocals. Jeff Hart, a Neil Peart disciple, balances a real estate career, a wife and child. Busy man, bad ass drummer. But something else was needed to allow Mike to do his thing on the harp. Enter Mike Duggins. Mike or “Big Mike” to distinguish, has been a rhythm guitarist for over 30 years. Big Mike lays down the rhythm licks and vocals. The band began to find their sound, with some success. But then the story gets good. Sean was scheduled to work the night of a show. Another bassist was hired. Then Sean found he didn't have to work and volunteered to play some lead guitar. HOLY SMOKES. The boy could rake. So we needed another bassist. Welcome Wayne Smith, a jamming buddy of Mike's with tons of experience. With over 100 years of live music experience, the members of Embrad bring a unique live experience with nothing but Pure, Unfiltered, Soul Lifting ROCKINCOUNTRYBLUES. Embrad is the #1 Blues act in Oklahoma City and plan to stay that way. Book us today. You wont regret it.
