Director Biography - Michael Alex Mroz

Michael Mroz is the founder and lead guitarist for Dallas based AC/DC tribute band, Back in Black. Back in Black was formed in late 2000 by former LA bandmates Mike Mroz (Angus) and Darren Caperna (Bon & Brian). Mike had always recognized the potential of this project due to Darren's uncanny ability to transcend both the spirit of Bon Scott and Brian Johnson into his voice. They were one of the first tribute bands chosen by Live Nation/CBS Radio to tour all the House of Blues! In 2013 they were featured on AXS TV Worlds Greatest Tribute Bands and have performed their first Symphony concert with the Calgary Philharmonic in Oct 2013. They toured major arenas and theaters as part of the Classic Rock Experience in 2008/2009. They headlined concerts at the Calgary Saddledome and Edmonton Arena. For the sixth year in a row they will headline the worlds largest Tribute Festival, Jacks Throwback in Dallas. They also performed to over 36,000 people at the Bone Bash in Ft Worth, and have been recruited by Sony Music, AC/DC's new record label, to promote catalog sales. 20th Century Fox have chosen Back in Black over all other tribute bands to record AC/DC's classics 'TNT' and 'A Long Way to the Top' for two of their movies, Napoleon Dynamite and Garage Days. Also, lead singer Darren Caperna, was auditioned by AC/DC in March 2016 to fill in for the great Brian Johnson who was suffering from hearing loss. The 3-4 song audition turned into a 4 to 5 hour meeting.
