This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: June 27, 2008 - When blues-rock guitarist and bandleader Mike Zito lived in St. Louis, he could be found playing all over town just about every night of the week.
"We played everywhere," says Zito, who in recent years has relocated to Southeast Texas. "Boomers, Pop's, the 1860, both Train Wrecks, on the landing and in Westport. More than anything, I just wanted to play guitar as much as possible. Luckily, St. Louis is one of those places where you can play music and make a living. You can't do that everywhere."
