Mikko Patama is a young and versatile musician and educator and the keyboardist of the Finnish progressive rock band Jupu Group.
Mikko has over ten years of professional experience specializing as a synthesizer and keyboard player in all kinds of bands and projects. As an educator Mikko can help you not only with music theory, but also with your rig setup:
I can also help you choose your instruments, whether it be hardware synthesizers or software controlled via a MIDI keyboard, or even both, depending on your budget and needs. I personally currently gig with a hybrid setup combining various hardware keyboards and Gig Performer 4.
Mikko was a guest in an episode of Backstage with Gig Performer. The initial live stream is available on Facebook, but for YouTube is recorded another stream:
Jupu Group was a somewhat typical Finnish prog band, as most bands in Finland (in the 70’s) played some form of jazz-rock/fusion. The band was based around the violinist Juhani “Jupu” Poutanen (hence the name Jupu Group). Watch the live stream to learn more about this band and see Mikko playing.
