Mikey Hachey and Elvis Grey
Born and raised in Anaheim, California, Mikey Hachey embarked on his musical journey in band class at age 12. In college, Mikey developed his skills and formal training at California State University, Fullerton, as a music education major with a performance minor. From there, he joined the band Suburban Legends in 2004, which brought him international touring experience, as well as television and acting exposure. A semi-residency at Downtown Disney and Disneyland’s Tomorrowland Terrace came shortly thereafter. Since joining the band, Mikey has made a name for himself in the Southern California area working as a studio session musician and a hired on-stage live performer.
He soon became musical director for the Playboy Comedy tour house band “The Project” and performed side stage to Rob Schnieder, Tom Green and Jeff Garlin to name a few. In 2010, he took on the bass chair for Neil Berg’s “Holiday Broadway” show at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, onstage with such broadway stars as Carter Calvert (Catz), Rita Harvey (Phamtom of The Opera) and Ivan Rutherford (Les Miserables). Mikey is now on-stage as the upright and electric bass player for Cirque du Soleil’s Viva ELVIS show in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he currently resides. Mikey has studied under Jason Langley (Broadway touring company of Dreamgirls), Rick Shaw (Johnny Matthis), John Hatton (Brian Setzer Orchestra), and Tom Warrington (Buddy Rich, Tom Warrington Trio). Continuing to promote music and it’s power to touch and inspire people is Mikey’s biggest endeavor. It’s all about the groove!
