Mike, Jim, Rich & Monica
Monica Louise Lead Vocals and Sass
Monica Louise has been singing most of her life. At church, school and many bands. Most recently 19 years with Armadillo Jump. She is primarily an introverted homebody, but she enjoys the energy and community created around the making and loving of live music. It is the passion for rhythm and dancing that keeps her coming back. Mayfair3 rhythm section has coaxed her out of the house and retirement. Their timing couldn't be better.
Jim Meier Vocals, Drums
Jim got his first drum kit at age twelve and spent many hours learning and listening to many styles of music. He then played drums in High School band, Marching and Jazz band. Jim joined a couple bands with some friends from school. after he graduated he worked with some local jam bands. in the mid to late 1970's it was time to raise a family and there was no room to pound a set of drums so Jim took a respite and raised his family.
Almost 35 later the desire to play drums and sing came back with a vengeance. Jim began woodshedding for a few years until a few friends asked him to join their already established band. It became an obsession ever since.
Jim states: I have been honored to support some great musicians such as the Midlife Crisis Band, Jim Stairs and Squishy Mud, Armadillo Jump, Howard "Guitar" Ludke and Blue Max. Although I didn't do much singing with those bands, it is exciting to be able to be one of the main vocalists with MAYFAIR 3 and I think we have some great vocal blending in the band"
Mike Brisson Vocals, the big Bass, the little Mandolin
Mike has been performing in the Midwest music scene for four decades.
Touring with Twiggs, Nothings Easy, Monterey, Home Free, Upfront, Johnny Danger and most recently with Armadillo Jump and Squishy Mud.
