Michael Stephen "Mike" Levine (born 1 June 1949) was the bassist and keyboardist for the Canadian band, Triumph.[1] As he did not sing lead on any of the band's music, he was often perceived as "being in the background." However, he contributed much to the band by his bass and keyboard work, as well as songwriting. He also produced much of the band's early work.

Live, he also contributed much onstage banter with the audience, often smoking a large cigar during performances as well as wearing local sports team jerseys (especially NHL teams).
