Reviews

From customers:

David (, 1 year ago

He put on an amazing performance and was a really nice guy. Michael was very kind for allowing me to use his acoustic guitar to perform 2 songs of my own..

Donna (, 2 years ago

Brilliant vocalist and there was no song he could not do. The dance floor was full from beginning to end. I first saw Michael in Finnegan's Wake in Edinburgh playing Africa by Toto and I knew then that I wanted him for our wedding. Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect.
