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!

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.

Michael was the star of the evening at my husband's birthday party. My friends raved about him afterwards, and all would love to have him at future events.

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!!!

Holiday PartyReviewed on December 15, 2018From San Rafael, CA

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.

Halloween PartyReviewed on October 31, 2015From Palo Alto, CA

It was lovely working with Michael. We had wanted to do a Dracula Pianist, and I was prepared to do his hair and makeup, but he arrived with most of it already done! Saved us time when things get hectic as a party is getting underway. Very professional, talented, and easy to work with!

Part of Michael's talent comes from experience, because he was able to adjust right along with our event in and out of the spotlight so to speak, elevating the live experience! Bravo

We've hired Michael twice now, both times for Christmas parties. On both occasions, he arrived early and performed beautifully. His music really enhances the ambience and adds to the festiveness of the event. I'd recommend him without hesitation.

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 24, 2012From Sonoma, CA

Michael was fantastic! We had a very small, informal, intimate dinner party for the holidays. Michael was EXTREMELY accommodating last minute, given it was Xmas Eve. He was flexible with requests and played for several hours. Brought his own equipment, set up and took down. I would definitely recommend him again (and have).

This is the second time we've had Michael play for one of our events because he did such a great job that first time. Well, this time, he was even better! It is very apparent that Michael absolutely LOVES what he does. He combines being extremely talented and professional, with also being sweet and accommodating. This occasion was a little more informal, and therefore ideal for Michael’s natural sense of humor to take off: it was a BIG hit with our guests! We were all laughing and singing, making this party a HUGE success! Bravissimo, Michael, and thanks to GigMasters as well!

Retirement PartyReviewed on March 26, 2010From San Jose, CA

Wow! Michael is a talented performer. Michael played at my wife's retirement party, he played some of my wife's favorite music. Michael is very flexible, he provide his own keyboard and it sounded great, and he accommodated a program change. He's very professional - he came in a tux and he was on-time and well prepared. - he adds a special touch to make any event so much more memorable. Michael is extremely talented and a very nice guy. I highly recommend Michael, I couldn't have asked for more.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on April 5, 2014From Palo Alto, CA

Michael is a delight to work with! He arrived early so he could start exactly on time and was flexible about staying later if needed. Throughout the evening, he played beautifully, incorporating many - if not all?! - of the pieces he and I discussed beforehand. He is a true gentleman and has a heart of gold. No questions asked, ANYtime I need another pianist, I'll have my fingers crossed Michael is available!

Michael Levine was just wonderful! He was very accommodating to every request I made. Mr. Levine is very, very talented and you will be satisfied. My guests enjoyed his playing and afterward they were asking me for his information! The party was such a success and I would definitely recommend him. He is very professional and he is just great. Everyone enjoyed him and I would definitely hire him again! Thank you very much Mr. Levine!

As the coordinator of our alumni/faculty cocktail reception held during a conference held in San Francisco (our cancer center is located in Buffalo, NY), I had no idea where to turn for a pianist to performduring the reception. I went online to GIGMasters and contacted Michael to perform. And I am so glad that I did. Michael was extremly accommodating, very easy to work with, a wonderful pianist and showman. Everyone enjoyed his performance. I would definitely recommend him. Thanks, Michael, for being a part of our evening!
