Michael was wonderful to work with - quick responses during the planning process and arrived early for set-up. He served as our DJ during our conference kick-off reception and got the tone just right. He began with fun background music to encourage networking and then made a flawless transition to the dance-party vibe we wanted to end the night. The dance floor was packed and he kept the crowd pumped. We also hired Michael to play background guitar music during a more intimate VIP reception another night, and we were very pleased. He played beautifully but completely understood that the event was intended to be a working function - so he kept the volume at the right level to be entertaining but not overpowering. We would work with Michael again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend his services - you'll be pleased!Aug 20, 2019Verified

Michael was awesome and made our wedding day so special. We had a outdoor wedding and it rained and Michael had to move things around a lot but he did so with a smile on his face the whole time even though I know it wasn’t easy. He played guitar at the ceremony and did a beautiful job. He also did a great job at our reception with the dance and had our guest dancing from the first to the last song. The dance floor was full and we had a blast. I would recommend Michael to anyone looking for a musician or DJ for their special event!Jul 24, 2019Verified

Michael was our DJ and played classical guitar at our wedding. During our ceremony and during dinner Michael really set the tone by playing the guitar which was such a magical addition to our already perfect day, he was also a trooper because we were married outside with falling snow in about 20 degrees. We’ve gotten so many compliments from friends and family remarking about how talented he is playing the guitar. In addition to his live music skills he was the exact DJ we were looking for and did a great job MCing and helping keep everything on schedule! We wanted to have a DJ who would keep the dance floor full all night long and he did not disappoint. He did an amazing job of playing music for each generation that we had at our wedding. Michael was so responsive and put any worries about the wedding at ease. He provided AV equipment during the ceremony and lighting at the reception. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for live music and a stellar DJ.May 13, 2019Verified

Michael was wonderful to work with from the very beginning and helped our vision of our special day become a reality! We wanted a mix of live guitar, singing and DJ songs played and it all came together as planned. The live guitar and singing was a beautiful touch and Michael even braved the chilly weather with us. Highly recommend this talented musician for your upcoming event!Oct 18, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I love what I do and I charge a fair and competitive fee that I believe is a great value. Just a week ago I was performing for a wedding and at the end of the event the bride handed me a check for the final balance due. When I went to cash it I looked down and realized the bride had wrote, "The best money I spent on my wedding," at the bottom of my check. She made my day and much, much more....
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to use a worksheet that lays out all of the possibilities of what I can provide for the event. Then I work with the customer to fine tune those details and custom tailor my services to fit their unique event perfectly.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have my Bachelor Degree in Music and Sound Engineering, 25 years experience in the business, and I have taught Music at the University level for 18 years. I have a vast understanding of how to perform, compose, and mix music as well as what it takes to properly fill a room with music.
