Michael Bland, Drums

With his recognition as a prodigy, drummer Michael Bland was actively sought by many local acts in the Minneapolis area. At seventeen, Hiram Bullock took him to Pittsburgh and New York to do some dates. In that same year, he joined Dr. Mambo's Combo, a house band at Bunker's music bar and grill where Prince first spotted him and decided that Michael was the element his new group needed. Michael joined Prince in 1989, and he toured, recorded, and performed with The New Power Generation for seven years.

in 1996, immediately after his tenure with Prince, Michael went on tour with Paul Westerberg, which led to tours and recordings with other national acts, such as Chaka Khan, Maxwell, Dionne Farris, George Benson, Phil Upchurch, and Howard Hewitt. More recently, you might have seen Michael's name on albums by Evan and Jaron, Shannon Curfman, Har Mar Superstar, Kyle Riabko, among others.
