Mike Sund was born in 1944 and attended Norfolk Junior High and High School. He was an exceptional athlete, but soon turned his interest to music. Mike was an original member of several Norfolk rock bands, including David Lee and the Continentals, The Classics, Little Joe and the Ramrods, and The Redtops.

He was a gifted Rhythm and Blues singer and guitarist, and he started many young musicians on their way. Mike loved to dance, and choreography was always a high point of his shows. His original "Mike Sund Diamond Step" was a standard stage move in Norfolk. As Roger Volk, of The Smoke Ring recalls, "You could always spot Mike on the dance floor, with his red socks and trench coat. He was one of a kind." Jim Casey, also of The Smoke Ring, added, "Mike taught us how to be cool." Mike passed away in Omaha, at age 41
