Vocalist Mimi McHale and her band, Second Wind, offer smooth jazz, blues, country and Latin rhythms. This close-knit ensemble, consisting of McHale, manager/guitarist Bill Tracy, bassist Dave Arliss, flautist/vocalist Cathy Mullarney and guitarist Bob Felter have been performing in Auburn and the surrounding area for the past six years, since the first cocktail party fundraiser for the Matthew House.
