Introduction: 2021 UPDATE: Due to the current circumstances with COVID-19, I am now offering my services online. You can schedule a video call and book me to play for you or someone else LIVE for 30 mins - 1 hour. Quarantine can be boring for some, but it can still be fun. This is a safe and healthy way to enjoy live music from the comfort of your home. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. In-person gigs will be considered; however, only if they follow appropriate mandates and CDC guidelines in California. I will not play for your event if my performance area is not socially distant from everyone else. This is to ensure not only my health and safety but the safety of others. Stay safe. - Michael I am a singer/songwriter who's been singing since the age of 5. I perform music every day and I truly love what I do. I offer only the highest quality of live music entertainment services for your party or special event. I believe that music is a shared and unique experience every time and I intend to make your event memorable in the best way possible. If you're looking to add some soulful soothing tones to your next event, I'm what you need. Connecting with new audiences and creating unique experiences through music is what makes my job worthwhile.

Michael was awesome! I hired him for my zoom team happy hour. He was energetic and engaging with the meeting, my staff really enjoyed his session. He is passionate about his music and it translates into his performance! You will not be disappointed. Thank you again for providing my staff a boost they so deserve.

Michael was hands down the highlight of our event. So this guy has golden pipes no doubt, but he is an all around energy producer too. He was super professional in all our pre-event meetings. He was very attentive to our event goals and a great listener. Everyone loved him and this was on zoom which is not easy to pull off. I highly recommend him for your event or party.

We hired Michael for my dads surprise birthday party and it was the best decision I made! He is very professional and easy to communicate with. Our party was very small and intimate and he made everyone feel included and welcomed. He has a large verity of song/ artist selection and is so talented! I highly recommend him for any occasion. I know my family will be asking for him at our next gathering.

  • 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.
