Michael was great to communicate with before our wedding and took on board any requests we had for the big day. Michael made our evening really special and really brought the party atmosphere. A brilliant musician I would highly recommend!

Having worked with Michael on countless events I can confirm he is an exceptional bass player and vocalist. He’s incredibly reliable and easy to work with, and I’ll be hiring him again for upcoming events in the Summer.
