Michael Iceberg On Tour


In the early 80s Michael was able to realize his dream of taking the Iceberg Machine on the road.
These are recordings of Michael's visits to colleges and other venues all over the country. Most shows would be preceded by a free clinic in the afternoon, where Michael invited anyone who was interested to see the machine up-close and ask questions.

No longer required to follow the format required by his Disney employers, Michael opened up his playlist to more songs, while still playing familiar pieces from his sets at the Disney parks.

These are all live recordings from shows, made by fans who were there.

​Around Christmas, Michael's last set of the day (he usually played 4-5 shows daily) was a "special" Christmas show. It starts out like a regular day show, but then he works in a lot of familiar seasonal tunes.

Downloads & Audio

In this area you will find permanent links to download live recordings of Michael's music. Most are "bootlegs" from cassette tapes made in the late 70s and early 80s at Walt Disney World and college tour shows. More will be added as time allows.

Also, there are rare recordings of out-of-print albums by other artists with whom Michael played.

Michael Iceberg At Disney Parks


Many of Michael's fans first saw him in Tomorrowland Terrace at Walt Disney World, Florida.

He would also do shows at Disneyland in California. A typical show was around 40 minutes, starting with a medley, followed by an explanation of how the machine came to be, then several more songs, including his signature song "Fanfare" and usually winding up with the "Grand Finale" of the William Tell Overture.

These are all live recordings from shows in Disney parks, made by fans who were there.

​(More Disney recordings soon!)

The first is with Long John Baldry, on the album "Baldry's Out" You can hear Michael's "chick singers"  padding the vocals on "A Thrill's a Thrill".

The second is with Jimmy Griffin, from his song "Goin' Back to Boston". Listen for flutes, strings, guitar, and more in the middle of the song.

Thanks to Mike Novak for providing these out-of-print  recordings from his private collection.

The Leather Jug Sessions


Some of Michael's first regular gigs with The Iceberg Machine were at The Leather Jug in Snowmass, Colorado in the early 1970s. It was there that he honed his craft at blending organ, synthesizer, electric piano, and Chamberlin sounds into the one-man show that would later be seen by so many at Walt Disney World.

Around that time, a gentleman named Bob Peters started recording Michael's shows on a reel-to-reel tape deck. Bob can accurately be named one of the original Michael Iceberg Superfans.

These are rare live recordings from shows at that venue, originally reel-to-reel tapes that were later transferred to cassette, and now to mp3. We are very grateful to Tom Young for providing these recordings, from the collection of his dad, Bob Peters.

They are, to date, the earliest known live recordings of Michael playing.
