Mike provided music for a retirement/birthday party and was terrific. He was very pleasant and easy to work with from the point of first contact onward. He and his partner were on time, extremely cheerful and accommodating, and their live music definitely made the party-- it was perfect-- not too loud, not too soft, and made the event feel very, very special. We received a ton of compliments as well requests for referrals. We'd happily hire them again for future events.

Mike was incredible and couldn't have been more professional or easier to work with from the moment I requested a quote through the conclusion of the event. We got rave reviews from guests and he went more than the extra mile to accommodate special requests, changes, and other accommodations to truly make the event special and one of a kind. I can't recommend him highly enough. Oh yeah, he's also a brilliant musician.
