Here are comments from clients who have recently hired me to entertain for their parties and weddings, as well as postings on Yelp.com about my piano entertainment in the Four Seasons Hotel.
"Michael performed at my January 30th wedding, and I cannot recommend him strongly enough. He was great to deal with during the planning process and cheerfully learned a new piece of music for our ceremony. These things, combined with the fact that he was very modestly priced, convinced me to book him for our event. Our wedding reception was an intimate cocktail party and Michael was a perfect addition, playing a combination of standards and the funky modern pop and rock selections that are something of a trademark for him. His music choices were spot on, and he happily took requests from my guests. Nearly everyone in attendance commented on how great he was! If you're looking for a pianist for your wedding, this is your man! He was so much nicer than anyone else I interviewed and his playing was great, I'm so happy we went with him."

"My wedding was on June 20th and Michael performed my ceremony music. EVERYONE commented on how great the music was. I requested "River Flows in You" by Yiruma 1-2 weeks before my wedding. He did not know this piece, but learned it. AMAZING! He played it perfectly. I can't express how much I thank him for that. I strongly recommend to anyone to use Michael for your wedding, or any event you have."

"Michael, we wanted to thank you again for the wonderful music at our ceremony and reception! Even though we agonized a bit over some of the song choices, we couldn not have imagined anything better than how it all went. Thanks so much."
- Jeannie and Anne
Michael, Thank you for being so wonderful on our daughters wedding day. You're music was beautiful, Jen and Scott loved it. We are so grateful that you were available to step in last minute, and at this point can't imagine anyone else playing at our daughters wedding. You are fantastic!

We asked Michael to play at our holiday party this year and he was a total hit! He arrived early and created the perfect atmosphere and kept our guests happy and entertained long into the evening. His repertoire is outstanding and he's completely prepared (with a neat little gadget) to play obscure requests and unexpected piano adaptations. If you don't have a piano he'll bring his own electric piano and amp. We decided to rent a piano for a little while and he dropped by earlier in the day to check it out for us - in short, he's a total professional. Recommended!

I wanted to grow up to be (Michael) the pianist in the Bar at the Four Seasons. He twinkles such modern lounge favorites as "Clocks," ”I Wanna Be Sedated," "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Stairway to Heaven," "Purple Rain," and more from The Killers, Elvis Costello and Snow Patrol. Cindy C. and I had a blast last night, quietly singing along, making eye contact with other guests and the pianist, body language crying out, "I know this song... and thank you!" Pianist, you rock.

Wow! We hired Michael for our October 09 wedding. The entire experience exceeded our expectations. Michael is very talented and a true professional. If he's available book him! Thank you Michael for making our day so special!

We had such a nice time at their bar last night….The piano player was awesome because he kept playing 80's songs that would suddenly hit all 4 of us at once causing us to shout out our tunes of teen angst. It was so funny to have the experience of a table full of people well-rooted in our 3rd and 4th decades, suddenly look at one another and saying, 'My god; is he playing The Psych Furs?!" I was expecting the place to be snotty, and it was just nice.

"If you are looking for an AMAZING piano player, look no further! Not only is Michael super talented and creative,but he is SO easy to work with and incredibly understanding. Plus you can tell that music is his passion by how much pride and professionalism he has. He can read a crowd and play the perfect song they didn't know they wanted to hear (you will literally hear people say "Is he playing Green Day?"). You need this awesome piano player to make your event a night to remember! (He plays a mean U2, too!) "
