Musician, Keyboardist

Mike Lang was a well-respected keyboardist who can be heard on over 2,000 movie scores and countless studio recordings over his long and successful career.  He worked with composers such as John Williams, Henry Mancini and Jerry Goldsmith to jazz and pop performers such as Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Zappa.  Interestingly enough, Mike was there in the studios when the boom of electronic instruments hit the market.  He was asked to play the latest Moog or APR products and remembered with a smile the first time he played a Yamaha DX7 in the early days of MIDI.  Mike was also a noted songwriter and composer and a welcomed sight at any NAMM Show!
