Skinny Who?

Over 25 years of rocking Cleveland, and Skinny Moo shows no signs of slowing down.

Skinny Moo LIVE


Skinny Moo began as a blues band in 1999, evolving quickly into "an original cover band": unhindered by musical eras or styles, they are a band that take every song they perform and make it their own. After two decades, the group remains one of the premier musical entertainment experiences in Cleveland, performing up to 50 times each year.

Accolades for Skinny Moo include being recognized by Cleveland Magazine as one of the top cover bands in the region in a Best of Cleveland issue, culminating in a performance at the Best of Cleveland party at the Rock Hall. The Cleveland Cavaliers brought Skinny Moo into Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse (formerly Quicken Loans Arena) multiple times to play on the floor for Cavs watch parties and games. Fox 8 News has invited Skinny Moo to perform live on the air on numerous occasions. And these are just a few of the venues Skinny Moo is apt to visit during their busy schedule (check out a list of events and places they've played).

Audiences of all ages (and fans of all musical styles) respond to the chemistry of this group of seasoned musicians, all close friends, and all of whom have played in a "who's who" of local and regional groups. People can't get enough of the energetic delivery of songs that span the entire spectrum of musical styles and eras: from '60s soul and '70s funk through '80s pop and '90s rock and all the way to current tunes.

Adding to the band's appeal is their ability to improvise, creating impromptu medleys or inserting bits of requested songs seamlessly into whichever song they are performing - often with unexpected and amusing results. The goal of every Skinny Moo performance is to make music fun for everyone, including the members of the band.

Whether it's a performance at a corporate event, a private party, or a popular club, the Moo is always fun, funky, high-energy, and extremely entertaining.

The Moo Crew

The musicians that make Moo music fun and funky


Mike Crow

Bass, Vocals

Mike knows when to hold ’em, knows when to fold em, knows when to walk away, and he knows when to run. His favorite musical achievement is jogging in place while playing and watching Scotty’s fingers tickle the plastic ivories.
