RICHMOND, VA- April 29,2014 – MMA Fight Music Producer Mikey Rukus, known as the world leader in creating customized theme music and walkout music for countless MMA companies, promotions and fighters at every level, will be reuniting his full band live act for one night only at the MMA event Sprawl N Brawl 2, which will take place on July 19th in Hopewell, VA.
Rukus, who most recently began branching outside of MMA, creating theme music for and hosting the obstacle course race “Bushido Challenge”, was set to go on a national tour this year with a consolidated band lineup consisting of a DJ and additional vocalist, putting on pre fight parties prior to UFC events. That plan was halted due to a substantial amount of push back from UFC’s legal department. Although the tour was met with resistance, Mikey stayed busy with several other projects. And now, after nearly a year, the full band line up is about to make its return for one night in the hometown of Rukus and guitarist Kenny Bean.
“I miss playing on stage with my band mates. It’s been pretty tough as we’ve all been on completely different schedules and we’re involved in all of our own projects, but the timing seems right. Craig Yerkey is a great guy and does his best to give VA ammy fighters a chance to showcase their skills. We had been kicking around the idea for a while, and with them doing an event in Hopewell it just seemed to be a good opportunity to do a fun show. There will be 15 fights, 3 of those are title fights and a live concert, two shows in one. It’s mine and Kenny’s hometown and I can’t wait to put on a show for all of my friends that I went to school with, and help give them the experience of a live MMA event as this would be the first of its kind in Hopewell, VA. “
