Mike Gangi's foray into music started at the turn of the century with the band Catching Red. Formed in late 2000, Wilmington musicians Mike Gangi and Wes Sayer quickly became a hit on the local college circuit. With a sizeable grassroots fan base, Catching Red quickly became a staple of the Wilmington music scene. Catching Red shared the stage with such acts as Sister Hazel, Pat McGee Band, Guster, Edwin McCain, Shawn Mullins, Cravin' Melon, the Blue Dogs, Hobex, Weekend Excursion, Mike Corrado Band, Travis Allison Band, Agents of Good Roots, Feel Love Fury, and Runaway Cab.
Shortly after Catching Red disbanded, Gangi served 4 years in the US Navy experiencing the culture of countries such as Turkey, Greenland, France, and Italy. His songbook grew as he traveled the country serving and protecting. Since his stint serving the country, Gangi has been working behind the scenes in the live event production industry at premier venues in cities such as Orlando, Austin, and San Diego.
Mike Gangi still performs solo throughout North Carolina and has been diligently working toward releasing his first studio-quality EP. His newest tracks: "God Forbid" and "Searchlight Smile" have been impressively popular cuts during his local live performances.
