If you would like to see us play near you! May 19, 2013Posted by Mimi » add a comment
Just an update on everyone today.
I am on a flight to California this next week to move into the next stage of my vision for the BIG SHOW!!!!! Meetings include budgeting and marketing ideas with my agent, Michelle Deem. This is a fun long-term project to manifest and create for my retirement. I feel as though it is the chance to leave a legacy of healing, which I have devoted a large part of my life to thus far.
WIth Styler and myself traveling often, it is the goal of the band to play at least 12 shows a year.
Bookings this year include California late this summer and another handful here in the MidWest (between Michigan, Illinois and Indiana).
Derek Reeves is making serious strides professionally, we look forward to announcing his life as it unfolds.
I was asked to write a song for a memorial page regarding a little girl named Savannah Cross who was murdered.
There is about a days worth of work left to do on it before recording in June. Once I have the website for
the memorial page, I will post it so you are able to contribute.
I was also working on a song Styler and I created named ‘Farewell dear Erin’ based on the Irish traditional instrumental ‘Farewell to Erin’. A film producer heard the song after it had been crafted by music producer Jon Gillespie and has requested that I help to direct the music video.
You can find Nellems sounding sensational on the drums at most of the hot local jazz nights.
Thank you to Paddy Lane for playing our music in Ireland!
We would ask that you continue to pray/meditate and send great vibes for the band and all those whom we reach and connect with. I keep each of you in my prayers and best wishes for your continued growth on this very sacred journey~ Shine on!add a comment
Big news on the home front. Congratulations to our percussionist, Wil Brown of the fantastic duo, ( along with groove of Mike Oneluv) of the AfroDisiacs, as they beset upon a new journey heading to a GRAMMY and signed the record label Circle Studios. We’ll see you on the road, brothers!
We’ve been in the creation process for a show which has taken years to culmante. Beginning with 30 songs in 30 days. The month of May will find Gonzalo and Mimi meeting with some of the biggest Grammy winning names in the music business along with finding a producer and director for the show. The idea of the new show is to create, inspire and support the souls of this world in their healing process.
Please keep each of us in your prayers as we travel, tour, create and support you in return!
Thank you for your support, buying our music and allowing us to create and thus heal the planet.
Adoring you~ shine on!add a comment
As we head into the Holiday season for many spiritual belief systems around the globe, I want to extend a warm and heartfelt amount of gratitude and huge reaching prayer for all of our beloveds around the planet. I cast upon each of you vast amounts of hope and strength to carry you through the darkest of times for even in the darkness there is shimmer and shine.
To give you a taste of the infinite possibilities of the Mimi Burns Band, please check out our great friend John Two-Hawks and plan to see us perform as often as humanly possible. Our show with John a few weeks ago, brought us all to the level of how monumental our abilities are to reach each of you on a global platform. Beginning this March 2013, as the age of enlightenment besets a new day and Spring brings birth to the zest of life, we will be joining John in uniting further nations with a emergence of a spectacular new show series. Stay Tuned IN!
On a personal note, I want each of you to know that when you contact us, we pray for you. You are a child of the infinite! Your value far exceeds earthy bounds and your divinity is worthy of love, light and to be treated with great honor, dignity and respect. Own it! Live it! Be the 1% of the population who knows it within their very soul!
We travel here but for a short time, make the most out of you!
I adore you

“Hear ye, hear ye!”
It is with a great and humble honor that the MBB have been asked to join John Two-Hawks as they are creating an evening you will want to come out an enjoy!
John Two-Hawks is a Grammy/Emmy nominated Native American flutist.
John is so wonderfully talented and recently the MBB sent him a copy of the latest album, ‘Brave Journey’. One of the songs on the album, ‘Spirit Mountain’, was inspired by John’s music, the story goes as follows.
Mimi often creates the music based around the lives of people who she sees forging forth with great uplifting conviction into this world. She had traveled quite a distance to attend a performance of John’s and while listening to his inspirational music, she asked the person sitting next to her for a pen, found a piece of a napkin in her purse and wrote out the titles of each of his songs, thus creating ‘Spirit Mountain’.
She then sent a copy of the album to John and Peggy, to which they returned with a phone call and a request to have the MBB open a show and share an evening together.
Derek Reeves of the MBB is bringing in a string quartet made up of members from the Fort Wayne Philharmonic to revisit some of their old material and a few songs from the new album as well. John Two-Hawks will be creating a new path into their music as he adds his own stylings into songs such as ‘Don’t Forget Me’.
Then, members of the band will play alongside John for some of his music before he enchantedly closes out the evening with his eloquent and grace filled flutes.
Gonzalo Carrera is flying in to play keys for the event as well.

Heading to London September 17, 2012Posted by Mimi » add a comment
Heading to London this week to meet with our keys player, Gonzalo and take on the adventures of the London underground.
The tour bus was a grand adventure and being on the road like a gypsy opens my heart toward songs. We were able to work on some new material which is always a great blessing.
The kind folks of Cincinnati were looking rather lovely and the renovations to the downtown area seem to be brining forth a relaxing style. A wonderful city to take in.
Our thanks to the staff of the Cincinnati Celtic Festival! What a joy to be at a festival who were running on time and gave us extra time to play! Thanks!
Our cd is now available on itunes around the globe and you may purchase it here as well. Please note, if you do not have all the funds to pay for you, tell one of us and we will find a way to barter!
