Michael, the Singing Guitarist, was everything I hoped for and more. I hired him for my 50th birthday party and left in his hands to entertain the crowd. His voice is amazing and his song choices were perfect. So many of my guests commented on how talented he was, and I even asked him to stay an extra hour because we didn’t want the music to end. I’m sure we will be seeing again for our next party!

Details: Birthday party • 26 - 50 guests • 31 - 50 years old • Vocals • Guitar • No preference • Pop / top 40 • Rock / classic rock • Outdoors

Thank you, Danielle! It was such a pleasure getting to perform for you and your guests on your birthday. The vibe was perfect and the view from the backyard overlooking all the city lights made it even 100x better!

The answer is YES - you should book Michael!!! We hired Michael for my intimate birthday brunch and he was a complete hit. Aside from having an incredible voice and ability to cover a wide range of music genres , his energy is infectious and he created the best vibe. We will absolutely book him again and I’m sure I’ll be seeing at at some of my guests’ future events! Thank you, Michael!!

Michael communicated very well and set up to play my cousins 40th birthday on short notice. He showed up early, got set up and was very friendly with our guests. Even made friends with my dogs. He played to the crowd of 16-75 year old guests. Everyone had a great time. His music skills are amazing and he has a great voice. He joked and laughed with us all. He even took some random requests and did a great job on everything. We had a musician in our guests who highly complimented Michaels skill and adaptability. I cannot imagine having a better experience. Such a great time when the right music is played. Thank you Michael! Can’t wait to do it again.

Details: Birthday party • 25 guests or fewer • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 13 - 17 years old • Vocals • Guitar • Rock / classic rock • Variety • Country / bluegrass • Pop / top 40 • Covers • Jazz / Blues • Outdoors

Michael graciously sang and played guitar for my brother’s funeral services. Although Michael stated that worship songs/music was not his specialty, he made a tremendous effort to learn songs we requested in a short amount of time and more than exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Michael, for making my brother’s services that much more special and memorable.

Details: General event / party • 51 - 75 guests • 31 - 50 years old • Guitar • Vocals • No preference • Other • Covers • Other

Thank you, Adrianna for the kind words. I had the absolute pleasure getting to play for your brother’s funeral. It’s been a second since I sang worship and it was nice to be reunited with such beautiful music surrounded by the love of your family. Best,

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Before we finalize the booking, I do require a 50% security deposit electronically. The remainder of the quote can be paid on the day of the event.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get an insight into the party or event. If it's a wedding, did you want music for a cocktail hour or dinner music? If it's a birthday party, did you want to choose a specific song for the birthday celebrant? Being informed as much as possible helps not only ensure that I can deliver properly, but that you get the experience you paid for. My job is to make your event memorable in the best way possible.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been singing since the age of 4. My mom studied voice and piano when she was growing up, so I got the music genes from her (thanks mom). I am professionally trained vocally for over 10 years and have been playing guitar for over 5 years.
