The friends and family of Mike Arrigan have come together to honour a friend, brother and musician who sadly passed away on the 13th of November 2015.

A powerful musical Show, which tells the story of Mike's musical life, is now in production to pay tribute to his talent, his teachings and his contribution to the Music World, particularly in Galway. 

The Show will take place in the Town Hall Theatre on Thursday 26th January 2017 at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased on the Town Hall Theatre website www.tht.ie, phone 091 569777 or through the Facebook page "A Tribute to Mike".

This show tells the story of Mike Arrigan's musical life as a Drummer, Musician and Mentor. He was determined to learn from the best in the business and while in America he studied under Gary Chaffee who was a world renowned teacher of musical theory. Mike was involved in forming the now world famous Macnas Drummers. 

He entered the Irish charts on two occassions, with The FUZE and with his Contemporary School of Music. Mike continued his passion and his unique way of teaching right up to the day he passed away.
