Farewell Address

Howdy friends, Burk here. There’s a decision I recently made that I feel you should be
informed of. I will no longer be playing bass for Mike Mains & The Branches.

First off, I would like to mention that this was one of the hardest decisions I have ever
made. Hours of prayer and thought were put into this. My decision didn’t come from a
heart of discontent toward the band, but from more personal matters. I will be living in
Chicago and going to school for Biblical Studies.

I will always love this band and the dudes and dudette in it. Mike, Shannon, and David
are family to me and always will be. I am merely stepping down as bassist to be the
number one fan.

This has been such an exciting past two years. I have no regrets. It’s been a huge
blessing to play music and meet so many new people. My prayers, as always, continue to
be with the band and I am excited to see where it will go. I believe in it, I know it will go

God Bless,


  1. You will be missed Burk! I pray God blesses your pursuit of school in Biblical Studies!

  2. This makes me want to cry and Burk plz come visit us ppl in Owosso Michigan plzzz
