I am a flamenco guitarist and I have a strong collection of flamenco and classical guitar music that I perform solo. Flamenco uses several fancy guitar playing techniques and it is fun to watch and to listen to. People seem to enjoy my music.

I've been playing guitar for 35 years now, first concentrating on classical guitar but now I'm quite focused on flamenco. I've had some excellent training, most notably first at Joe Fava's (formerly in Birmingham, MI) and then with Dearborn flamenco guitarist Jean Agopian. The classical foundation has really come in handy with the change to flamenco. Both styles use a nylon string guitar and a similar plucking technique. I'll always be learning but I think you'll enjoy the techniques I've learned so far. I'll put on a show you really like.

Flamenco music can be happy or sad. I've played at happy parties where people laugh, dance and yell with the tunes. At weddings, I've played at many church ceremonies and dinners and my music fits in very well at these. I've also played at funerals and many of the lamenting flamenco tunes fit this unfortunate purpose as well. Whatever your need, submit the non-obligating form below to contact me so that we can discuss things "in person". Again, this creates no obligation but it will allow me to bid on your event and it will also give you my contact information.

I have a good amount of amplification equipment and I can easily put on a show in any type of location. Some of the shows I've done have been in small cozy arrangements such as in somebody's home, where I simply walk around playing the guitar without amplification. At others, I use my Bose PA system to fill very large rooms. I can do all sizes of shows, big and small.

I also work with a very experienced dancer (Rene Isabelle) when requested. Rene, a former member of the Detroit Ballet Company, has been dancing professionally for many years. We have prepared several flamenco pieces that we do together and we put on quite a show with her fine dancing and beautiful flamenco contumes. (See attached pictures.) Sometimes, if appropriate depending on the party, we ask if anybody would like to learn some flamenco dances and we usually will get 10 or so eager flamenco wanna-bees up to learn Sevillanas, Soleares and the like. (Rene has much experience at teaching dancing and this part of our product is always a hit.)

Interested in contacting me? The only way to do that is to submit the "contract form" below. This creates no obligation to you at this time but it'll get you my telephone number, website and other contact information. Let's talk!

Mike was extremely friendly and helpful, and his performance was great. I would recommend him to anyone. We heard nothing but compliments about him from so many of our guests.
