Mike A

Where to start? The beginning is a good place.

Michael Aaron Averett (pronounced with a long A at the beginning thank you) was born three miles after the end of the world in Gillette, Wyoming. Yeah if you ever see the "End of the World" sign, Gillette is just after that.

Anyway, he has been playing the bagpipes for three years and love every minute of it. He attributes his beginning in the band to Mr. Robert McKinney. He was living with him at the time and just started going to practice. Sooner than he knew, he had pipes in hand and was playing like none other. It has become a personal passion for him. 

 "Being a member of the Wyoming Pipe and Drum Band has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and I wouldn't trade it for anything else."

"I win!"
