For special entertainment for your customers, party, special event or fundraiser Mike and Mary is a jazz and pop duo specializing in the beautiful and sophisticated music of the Great American Songbook beginning with the 20th Century to the present. Their shows are always full of great music and humor and, depending on the venue, great stories. Audiences respond to them with enthusiasm. Their performances are described as “marvelous,” “lots of fun,” and “engaging” and organizers who have worked with them appreciate them for being “talented, professional, enthusiastic,” and, not least of all, “cute.”
Vocalist Mary Osburn and arranger and pianist Mike Elkins comprise the Mike and Mary Show. Mary's musical beginnings were in the musical theater and expanded into the pop music world. They are described as follows: “With Mary rediscovering lovely songs from long forgotton Broadway shows and Mike writing fresh, new arrangements, this likable pair is able to do what they love best and entertain an audience at the same time with their cabaret show.” Both Mike and Mary enjoy rediscovering tunes from the musical theater that have become popular standards and introducing them to new audiences.
Mike Elkins is a creative and accomplished musician who has been performing in the Cleveland area for many years. A gifted pianist, he has continuously studied piano all of his life. He studied with Cleveland jazz legend Hank Kohout until Hank's death in 2006 and is now studies with the very gifted Jackie Warren. He is a member of the Dan Zola Orchestra and a number of other bands in the area.
Music originally introduced by vocalists like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Barbra Streisand and Peggy Lee are a large part of their repertoire. Contemporary artists Harry Connick, Jr. MIchael Bluble, Jane Monheit and Diana Krahl mirror their style and themes. Audience favorites include “The Rose,” “Fever,” “The Best is Yet to Come,” “One for My Baby,” and “Somethings Gotta Give.” Please visit our website at
