About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Six-Time Winner of GigMasters' prestigious "Best of (Year)" Award, with over 30 years professional experience (and over 180 GigMasters/The Bash performances to his credit!), Michael Levine has built a solid reputation as a top-notch solo pianist & keyboardist. As one of the leading GigMasters/The Bash 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. (PLEASE NOTE: The 'Song List' posted below represents just a small fraction of Michael's active repertoire, and is intended to reflect his versatility. Further listings are available upon request.)

EventReviewed on August 2, 2013From San Francisco, CA

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!

Cocktail PartyReviewed on January 18, 2020From El Dorado Hills, CA

Michael has performed for us at our annual Black and White party for five years in a row and he has never failed to delight our guests. He is nice, punctual, easy to work with, professional and very talented. He does great job of helping set the tone of our party. I highly and without reservation recommend Michael.
