Very much enjoyed by all. Such a talented guy, music was great and Michael was very professional and friendly. The booking was a surprise for my mum at her 60th birthday party who was completely overwhelmed and hasn't stopped talking about it. Will 100% book again when we have another big occasion. Thanks Michael, you really did make our party what it was!

Couldn't fault Michael, he had great communication with me ahead of the event and even questioned if there was any specific he should wear which was great as our event had a dress code theme. He was prompt and his performance was fab! Would definitely book again and recommend to others :)
