Michael did a great job playing piano during the cocktail reception for a black tie event I held at the Burden Kahn Mansion. He was very communicative before the event and asked if I had any special requests. Guests commented to me that they enjoyed his playing very much. It allowed for easy conversation yet loud enough to fill the room. One guest jotted a letter commenting on “his ability to bring Nat King and Natalie Cole’s music to life!”. Thank you once again Michael!
