About
The Michael James System has been performing classic rock music in the bay area for 5 years. They have performed at some of the areas top rock and roll clubs, wineries, corporate events, and private functions. Their enjoyment of classic rock dates back from the time they were both kids. Michael's first guitar at age 9 was a mail order special that kept him entertained and inspired for hours at a time. Likewise, James enthusiasm for classic rock music began in his early preteen years and has captured his attention ever since.

Michael performed and toured professionally during and after college throughout Michigan and Indiana along with gigs in Texas and Los Angeles. He also continued to enhance and elevate his singing style and vocal range under the direction of the Arbors in Chicago. Meanwhile, James continued to enjoy honing his bass and guitar playing skills with friends and family. James' gifted guitar playing caught Michael's attention when they worked together as instructors at Job Corps on Treasure Island. It didn't take long for the two friends and musicians to entertain the idea of merging their talents into the Michael James System.

Their love of classic rock music spans the decades from the 1960's through the 1980's and beyond. The diversity of their music begins with the King (Elvis) and branches out to groups like the Beatles; Rolling Stones; Byrds; Steppenwolf; Doors; CCR; Allman Brothers; Eagles; Dire Straits; and America. Other artists' music that are performed by the Michael James System include Neil Diamond; Roy Orbison; Chris Isaac; Uncle Kracker; and Phillip Phillips from American Idol. The Michael James System is always adding new "oldies" to their music repertoire and will be more than happy to play your special song at your event.

Your function deserves center stage attention and that's the way the Michael James System treats each special event. We take our time to be very respectful and professional taking into full consideration your wishes, priorities and concerns. We enjoy making your event as successful as possible from start to finish.

Thank you for considering the Michael James System as you choice band for your special event, and thank you for supporting live entertainment.

Michael James System was amazing! Their music was the perfect complement to our Vintage VW Show and Fundraiser. I got a ton of compliments on this year's band selection. They sounded great and their song choices were wonderful. Their communication before the show was superb and they were very easy to plan with. The day of the show, we had some power issues and they just rolled with the punches without a complaint. I can't thank you guys enough for helping to make our event a success and a show to remember.

Michael James System performed at our annual Spring Fair and was a BIG HIT with the young, old and in-between! He involved the kiddos by inviting them to play the tambourine, maracas and cow bell- on stage! Everyone was up and grooving to an enclitic mix of rock n roll. Thank you for a wonderful experience; a wonderful day!

Hi Ken and Susan, Thank you so much for the 5 Star review you gave our band. It was truly our pleasure to be a part of Susan's retirement party. We enjoyed entertaining just as much as meeting you and your terrific friends. Your hospitality deserves a 5 Star rating. We look forward to an opportunity for a return engagement some point in the near future. Thank you again Ken and Susan for all the ways you made us feel welcome and appreciated.
