Down Maggie Bio
Down Maggie was originally formed in the late 1990's by Tom Riley, John Abeli, Gary Ford and Bill Mullins. We are an alternative rock and roll band that plays a wide variety of originals and covers. Our originals lean more towards alternative rock, ranging from upbeat fun numbers to more driving beats with grit and rawness, with many influences - flavors of rock, blues, jazz, country, alternative and among others. As far as covers, we play everything from 60's covers to current numbers you might hear on the radio. Our covers capture the essence of the song but are definitely "Down Maggie" versions. We'll make you want to dance, laugh and cry all in the same night. We've played every type of gig you can imagine, from opening for Motown Recording Artist Paul Warren (Tina Turner & Rod Stewart's guitar player), benefits, backyard barbecues, corporate events, large festivals and everything in between. We've enjoyed them all and it has been a roller coaster ride of fun all over the State of Michigan.
Down Maggie is Tom Riley, John Abeli, Bill Mullins, Glen Dean and Kevin Krumm. You can learn more about each of us on our Members page. Down Maggie is always working on adding originals and covers to our current song list and we look forward to recording again soon.
