Mike Prevatt

Mike has won five Nevada Press Association awards and has been published in outlets like SPIN, New Music Express, URB and Desert Companion. He will outlast any househead on the dancefloor, bring up team sports at a gay bar and fulfill his goal of riding every roller coaster in America.
