Introduction: You want live music for your party or corporate event. Songs your guests know and love, played with soul, and tailored to the flow of your event. At the perfect volume. Sound right? I’m your guy! You'll get an amazing experience, the sound of a full band, at a price that a group of pros won’t touch. I do this by "looping" guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals in a fascinating solo performance. Nothing is pre-recorded, it's organic and engaging. CHECK OUT MY VIDEO in the "Featured Projects" section. It shows a range of material, and explains this whole looping thing! All my reviews are 5 stars - clients love my mix of songs, high quality musicianship and great vibe. I’m passionate about giving you a great performance, and I know how to “read the room.” I have a wide range of material: Classic Rock, R&B/Soul, Top 40, 80's, Blues... Rolling Stones, Hall and Oates, Clapton, Eagles, James Taylor, Steely Dan, The Band, Tom Petty, Michael McDonald, ELO, Bee Gee's, Springsteen, Bob Seger, Amy Winehouse, Pink Floyd, Santana, Dire Straits... I've performed with Chuck Leavell (Allman Brothers, Rolling Stones) and Francine Reed (Lyle Lovett), and shared a stage with The Producers, Iron Butterfly (!) and other top acts. My songs have had airplay on almost every major Atlanta radio station, and I’ve played Atlanta's top venues: Fox Theatre, Georgia Aquarium, 2 Braves stadiums, Hard Rock Cafe, Buckhead Theatre and more. Call me, I'm easy to work with! Mike McLeod

It was a pleasure to work with Mike! We were planning a rehearsal dinner long distance and he was quick to respond, helpful with music selections and was always professional. Mike even offered to help other vendors by offering use of his sound system. Mike is an extremely talented and versatile musician with a broad selection of music. The evening was a great hit and such fun thanks to Mike who had all of our guests in the party spirit. Thank you so much Mike for making a special occasion truly memorable!

FAQs

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

    When you hire me, you get the sound of a very professional full band, at a price no group of pros will touch! I do this by "looping" guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals in a fascinating solo performance. Nothing pre-recorded, very organic. For guitars, I usually bring mandolin, lap steel, acoustic and electric, for a really rich sound.

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

    Let's talk! I'll ask you about the flow of your event, age ranges, number of guests, the setting... I'll listen carefully, then work with you to tailor the pace and song list to be just right for your event. Most clients want a contract. I can send you a very clear and simple contract that ensures we're on the same page about date/time, location, payment etc. I make this step as easy as possible, so we can focus on the fun stuff. I'm flexible on the setting - I only need about 8x10 feet and one power outlet. I enjoy being right up in the crowd, if that's what you want! If you are putting me outside, please consider a backup location if the weather is not nice.

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

    For live performance, experience is the best training. After 45 years of performing live in many hundreds of gigs, I'm pretty good at reading a room and delivering a solid performance every time! I'm an accomplished musician - I've shared a stage with Chuck Leavell (Allman Brothers, Rolling Stones), Francine Reed (Lyle Lovett), The Producers and more. My songs have had airplay on every top Atlanta radio station, and I’ve played most top Atlanta venues: Fox Theatre, Georgia Aquarium, SunTrust Park, Hard Rock Cafe, Buckhead Theatre and more.
