Mike Zachernuk took up the trumpet as a student in the Shuswap school district in 1992. Under the instruction of Sandy Cameron, Steve Guidoni, Gordon Waters and Brian Pratt Johnson he gained his first experiences playing in large ensembles. Then came a move to Vancouver in the late 90’s to attend Capilano College and study under trumpeter Brad Turner.

After some time working on the club scene and sharing the stage with locals such as Blaine Wikjord, Sharon Minemoto and the big bands of Jill Townsend, Fred Stride and John Korsrud, he made the move to Tokyo, Japan, where he is currently active playing clubs, performing in concert and recording in the studios. As a member of Lisa Ono’s touring band and Brad Kelly’s World Beat Orchestra Mike has performed throughout Japan, China and Korea.
