Pleased to meet you!

The Problematics are the dynamic duo of Lorraine and Mike Messitt, who perform a wide variety of popular music from ’50s love songs to ’60s British invasion, traditional Celtic to R&B hits. They play concerts, pubs and private events with equal flair, engaging and entertaining audiences and ensuring a highly memorable, original experience. Lorraine’s theatre background and years honing her skills as a musician and singer in numerous blues, bluegrass, swing and Cajun bands blends effortlessly and joyfully with the solid, understated instrumental and vocal skills of partner Michael Messitt, a 35-year+ veteran of traditional and folk-rock bands. We also have an acoustic trio (2 guitars,1 bass) and 4-piece (w/2nd guitar, drummer) available for concerts, dancing events, and an additional sound person for larger venues.
