THAT 1 GUY - As the one-man band known as That 1 Guy, Mike Silverman plays an instrument of his own invention, which he calls "the magic pipe." After growing frustrated with other instruments, he designed it over the course of a month spent haunting hardware stores, collecting odd lengths of pipe and tools.  The bizarre instrument, the skill with which he played it, and the humor he brought to his performances earned Silverman enough accolades to come to the attention of Ani DiFranco, who signed him to her Righteous Babe label in 2004.

    As the one-man band known as THAT 1 GUY, Mike Silverman plays an instrument of his own invention, which he calls "The Magic Pipe" - a cross between a harp, a bass, a set of bathroom pipes, and drug paraphernalia. Two strings of differing pitches are attached to the pipes, one set firmly grounded and the other able to be maneuvered as it is played. Trigger points all over the piping play prerecorded samples when struck. There's also an electric saw, and a kick drum made from a cowboy boot is attached to the bottom. At the high point of his live show, smoke blows out of the top.

    THAT 1 GUY's musical influences include Rush, Frank Zappa, author Dr Seuss, and Drums and Tuba.  He has also been influenced by Tom Waits, and was invited to play saw and bass on tracks for Waits’ Orphans...album.

    THAT 1 GUY has a cult following in the US and Australia which he has toured many times over, including performances at major festivals such as Big Day Out. He has also played many shows alongside mysterious guitar virtuoso BUCKETHEAD, with whom he released a collaborative album under the name Frankenstein Brother in 2008.
