About
Four-Time Winner of GigMasters' prestigious "Best of (Year)" Award, with over 30 years professional experience (and 170 GigMasters performances to his credit!), Michael Levine has built a solid reputation as a top-notch solo pianist & keyboardist. As one of the leading GigMasters performers in the U.S., Michael is often hailed as "Pianist to the Stars!" Following classical training on the east coast, he became a Californian and started playing at such prestigious venues as the Fairmont in San Jose, the Four Seasons Clift and Mark Hopkins Hotels in S.F., and opened for Chuck Berry at San Francisco's Gift Center.

In addition to political fund-raisers for Shirley Temple Black, Senators Alan Cranston and Dianne Feinstein, S.F. Mayors Willie Brown and (now-Governor) Gavin Newsom, plus the Hon. Norman Y. Mineta, Michael played several benefits for the S.F. Symphony, and performed at the wedding of '49ers Hall-of-Famer Ronnie Lott. More recently, Michael played at another '49ers Gala event, the retirement party for Jerry Rice (also enshrined in the Hall of Fame) at San Francisco's Palace Hotel, which was featured on television. In August 2013, Michael performed for Napster founder and Facebook co-founder Sean Parker, and in Pebble Beach, at the Rolls Royce House for the Concours D'Elegance (his 100th GigMasters event!).

As an option for outdoor or piano-less job sites, Michael has concert-quality, portable keyboard equipment which delights audiences at conventions, private parties, trade shows, cruise ships and all functions where an extra 'sparkle' and ambiance enhancement is desired. Repertoire includes Gershwin, Cole Porter, Beatles, Billy Joel, Elton John, standards from every era, blues, international music, classical and much more! With great references and competitive rates, Michael maintains a very active performing schedule.

WOW!! Honestly, this couldn't have worked out better. If you close your eyes and imagine the talented, classy, iconic piano player that you'd cast in a movie - Michael would be the guy. I had a tough gig that involved an uncertain schedule and demanded some flexibility, and Michael was a true joy to work with. What a class act. I will definitely be hiring him again and would highly, highly recommend!

This is the third time I have hired Michael to thrill one of our clients with his amazing virtuosity on the piano. Once again, I am totally delighted with the professional ethics AND talent that is the joy of working with Michael. He never disappoints; as a matter of fact, he just gets better and better. This gig was a demanding one, for a very particular client, and Michael not only showed up looking great, but his talent AND his personality won the day ... all THREE days of the event in this case. I'm looking forward to working with him again ... and again.

There are no words comprehensive enough to describe Michael's personable and professional comportment on the keys at her birthday party. He was a huge asset contributing to the success of the party. The guests were very pleased with his playing and he deserves far more than the usual plaudits for his contribution to the event.

This is the second time Michael has played at a party for our family and friends. He is an amazing pianist, and my guests are entertained throughout the event. Once you have him perform, you will not want to have a party without Michael's beautiful piano music playing in the background and his great ability to include the guests in his performance. Truly the BEST!!!

Michael was very pleasant to work with from the first conversation to the end of the evening. We had an open house with over 80 people in attendance. Everyone enjoyed listening to him. He played a wide variety of music that was the perfect background for our party. He is a very kind and engaging person. I would highly recommend him and would use him again. Many people asked how we had found him and commented on his excellent skills.
