MIC was founded in Hillcrest, Natal by Steve Rothquel…Steve started his band in 1989 as a school boy dream…Little did he know that his band would go on to play in front of audiences of 55 000 people in Holland and become one of South African's top 'Pop Sensations'!
MIC is Steve Rothquel, Peter Stainbank, Marlon van Whye and Theran Knighton-Fitt. Each member of the band MIC contributes in various ways, from song writing to stage clothes designing (bet you did not know that) and as a whole they make up the dynamic sound of MIC.
