16 Paces

16 Paces:  16 Paces is a unique duo from Milwaukee, WI with a complete “Full Band Sound” featuring some of the best 2-part harmonies you will hear in southern Wisconsin.   Scott and Mike trade lead & harmony vocals so effortlessly it is often difficult to tell who is singing what part.  Electronic sequenced drums along with Mike’s lead guitar & Scott’s bass make for a terrific full band sound.  Although 16 Paces is primarily a classic country band, they play an impressive variety of music to include top-40 country, pop/rock & gospel music. 16 Paces is an ideal choice for small clubs, afternoon or early evening festival slots & corporate events.

Mike Gleason:  Mike sings lead & harmony vocals and is the lead guitar player specializing in the “hybrid chicken-pickin” guitar style often heard in modern country music.  Mike also features a passionate & soulful voice that is sure to please all crowds.  In addition to being a seasoned singer/guitar player, Mike is also a past Vice President of the “Wisconsin Country Music Association” (WCMA), emcee, and has been a presenter at the prestigious WAMI awards show.

Scott Sparks:  Scott sings lead and ultra tight harmony vocals in addition to playing bass guitar. Scott is a multi-instrumentalist who can play lead guitar and drums as well as the bass.  Scott is a well-known & respected veteran of many Country, Rock & Blues bands in the Milwaukee area.
