Michael was great! He listened to everything we needed and delivered exactly what were looking for! As the bride I was very busy and I didn't even get a chance to meet him until after the wedding, but he had taken care of everything and I didn't have to worry about anything! Very talented and professional!

Working with Michael was fantastic. He played both the guitar and the bagpipes at our July 2011 wedding. He was always prompt in responding to me, helpful, friendly and organized. Above all, Michael is a fabulous musician and was an excellent addition to our wedding ceremony. Michael has my very highest recommendation.
