I’m Mike, a musician based in the North West UK and have performed at thousands of events over my 20 year career as a professional musician. I continue to work as a regular sideman with the likes of Elkie Brooks, Tony Hadley, Kid Creole, Heather Small, ABC and Sandi Thom, and now work alongside the international brand CREAM as their sax and keys player for the CREAM CLASSICS shows with K-Klass and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. I started out as a sax player from the age of 10 and went onto study at the prestigious Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, where I now teach music. Drop me a message to see what I can do for you, and your event. I look forward to hearing from you.

Bekki Westlake I booked Mike for a surprise 90th birthday celebration and the feedback I received from all the guests was extremely positive. The whole booking process was so easy and Mike responded to my emails very quickly every time. Thank you so much Mike!

Mike is a fantastic saxophonist! The guests commented on how great he was. He kept in touch with me through out and put up with me changing my mind a hundred times on what songs to have . Very professional and I highly recommend him.
