A born entertainer with a knack for fan interaction, Michelson has long averaged upwards of 200 shows a year, playing to crowds that just seem to 'get' him and his music. A Portland, Oregon native, his extensive tour schedule and west coast travels have played a part in Michelson’s sound-an eclectic mix of classic country storyline with elements of roots and rock. The result, which can be heard on recent track releases “One At A Time” and “Stay Over,” gives listeners a take on the country genre “as fresh and clean as the Pacific Northwest air” he comes from. With a stage presence to match and thousands of live performances under his belt, Michelson’s ability to connect with his fans is earning him a prominent spot in country music’s landscape. “I’m an entertainer, it’s who I am. I’m not there for you to clap for me-I’m there to put on a show and engage with you.” First built over the former Dryfus Theater after it was destroyed in a fire, the Long Center was finished and christened first as the Mars Theater in 1921. Although it opened as a vaudeville house in 1921, it became a destination to watch the newest technology of the time, movies. It continued to operate primarily as a movie theater until 1977, when it was donated to the city of Lafayette by Irving Long, the president of the 4th Avenue Amusement Corporation in honor of his father, Dennis Long.
