Beatles, Stones, Elton John, Grateful Dead, Leon Russell, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and the Who are on the short list for Michael, who also peppers in his own original songs when the energy in the room calls for it. Between songs Michael offers light banter and humor to make your guests feel comfortable "getting into it." Michael will strongly consider your song requests when planning your event.
