Oral History Information
Bruce Mihalek has played the piano since he was just eight years old. When he saw the Beatles on TV, Bruce purchased a guitar and formed his own band. The band was the Animals Fax of Lyfe. It was the love of music that led him to work at a few music stores, including Well's Music in Denver. When the store was bought by Schmitt Music, Bruce stayed on, which he felt was an important learning opportunity. He worked with Tom Schmitt, who became a mentor for Bruce. He later worked with several keyboard and organ suppliers such as Lowrey and Roland.
