Michael was known as M. J. Carey. He was a child prodigy on the piano. He played in many bands. He played with the Dorsey Brothers. He had his own radio show. Tea for two was his theme song. He also made 78 Album.  Three Albums that we know of.

Michael Carey, a music professor who married Margaret M.Scully in Girardville. Michael went to NYC to play with the Dorsey Band, and was told he didn't care for the big city, moved back to Girardville, played at the Pottsville Club and McGraths Bar. There was another Scully who sang at the bar as well, along with Mickey Carey.

Quote from Mr. Noone

"My father (Anthony Carey Jr.) was very popular on New Years Eve because he had black hair and it was considered good luck to have a dark haired man be the first one into your home on the New Year; so, he had to make the rounds of the neighborhood.  He also had a wonderful Irish tenor voice so he was popular at weddings, etc.  We had an upright piano and sometimes the brothers would gather round.  Uncle Mickey would play the piano, and the rest of us would sing.  Dad being the tenor and Uncle Eddie was bass.  Uncle Mickey was tremendous on the piano.  We would put a tablecloth over the keyboard and he would play "Kitten on the Key" which is difficult under any circumstances.  He was extremely talented. "
Per S. A. Carey

Mickey Carey was a cousin to my dad and played the organ on a radio station in Pottsville and in the Circle bar also in Pottsville.. Dentist may have been a cousin. "

Quote per Jack Carey 2006 Grandson of Henry Carey and Sarah Dean, sister to Bridget   Dean Mickey's mother.
