Mike Foland, who is also known as "Money Mike," is the owner of the male revue "Men of The Strip." He opened up about his future plans with the venture.
"Men of The Strip" is hosted by Grammy-nominee Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees and Emmy-nominated choreographer Glenn Packard is the creative director of "Men of The Strip."
Their performers include Keith Webb, Kyle Efthemes, Chris Boudreaux, Nate Estimada, Joel Sajiun, and emcee Garo Bechirian.
They performed at New York's Gramercy Theatre on December 17, and Foland was pleased with the outcome. "I thought New York was amazing. The guys performed like rock-stars. Although the weather was bad, the crowd was great. Glenn was super happy," he said. "When it comes to choreography, Glenn is a genius. There is nobody like him. It is unbelievable to me. When you watch them in rehearsals, everything has to be on point or he will drill them all day long for eight to ten hours a day until it is on point."

Regarding his job description as owner of "Men of the Strip," Foland is involved in all facets of the revue. "I go from tour managing, to booking hotels, to getting the guys food and making sure everybody gets paid and they are all satisfied. I am hands-on all the time and I do everything," he said.
He revealed that his nickname "Money Mike" was created by Glenn Packard. "I am always giving out money," he said with a laugh. "I handle the financial matters whether is a calendar shoot, or a hotel room."
Particularly impressive about Foland is that he was a former UFC fighter.
2014 is going to be a busy year for Foland and the "Men of The Strip," especially since they are doing their reality TV show and they are in negotiations for tours at the international level. "2014 is going to be a huge year for us," he attested. "We are going worldwide with this."

Foland shared that he is originally from a town in Florida, but he has been living in Las Vegas for the last eight years. He is fond of country music, especially the music of country legend Johnny Cash. "I love Johnny Cash for sure. I'm a country boy," he admitted. "I really like his song 'A Boy Named Sue.' What a song that is."
He concluded, "We want to make this brand as successful as possible. It's all about putting the right pieces of the puzzle together. I think this is going to be an unstoppable brand, and it'll be worldwide."
