I can’t even describe how wonderful Mike was. He MADE my wedding day. He learned songs he didn’t know for me & made sure my wedding day went according to plan. He played & sang for the entirety of my wedding, knew how to read the room, & had a gorgeous repertoire w/ a variety of genre covered in exceptionally beautiful ways. His voice is just phenomenal - everyone complimented my finding him & pointed out they could never get bored of listening to him. Many have already asked me for his contact. I could have done w/ or w/o nearly anything in my wedding, but Mike & his music I could not have been without. He truly made my wedding & I can’t wait to book him again!

Thanks for having me!!!!!
I got married in Malibu at the Malibu Beach Inn in October 2017. It was amazing but nothing was as amazing as Mike's music. Pre-wedding Mike reached out to make sure I had what I needed, helped me with the song list. My husband and I don't even have a song but when we heard Mike sing Blackbird by the Beatles we knew that was it! He is so talented, professional and just plain amazing. Everyone asked where I found him and asked for his information. You can not go wrong hiring this guy. My only worry is that he gets too busy in the future and we won't be able to book him again. Ask him about his most recent song he wrote - its unbelievable.

Mike was the best! I hired him for my 50th birthday in Napa (yes, he is actually from Laguna Beach) because I spent hours and months searching and listening to so many artists in SF and No. Cal but no one stood out. I had something in mind and couldn't find it until I listened to his audio recordings and saw his playlist! It was exactly what I was looking for! Fun unique upbeat background music during dinner outside on a beautiful night (not wedding music)! It was awesome! He even learned a few new songs for me! best part of my night!
My husband and I can not say enough good things about Mike and the amazing voice he was blessed with. Not only is he extremely talented, he is incredibly professional but makes you feel like you have been friends for years. Our recent wedding was the fourth time we have been at an event where Mike has performed and definitely know it won't be the last... Our family is already planning on hiring him while I am trying to find out what event I can have next just so we can have him around more. A month later we are still hearing nothing but compliments on our "wedding singer" Thanks again Mike for being a HUGE part of making our wedding magical.
I booked Mike to play at our beach wedding & cocktail hour, 675 characters are not enough to describe how awesome he is as a musician & person! I challenged him w/ a song I wanted to walk down to. I asked him to acoustically play & arrange a M83 (indie, electronica band) song along w/a violinist. He exceeded the challenge, it brought tears to my eyes as I walked down the aisle. His voice is captivating & attracts your guests attention. We had so many compliments on his music! Mike is super easy going & just a very nice guy. He always communicated promptly & available for questions. I can't say enough about Mike & I would definitely hire him again! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
We booked Mike to play for our wedding ceremony on April 22 and he was absolutely amazing!!! Everyone only had the best things to say about him! I annoyed him for about 5 months with emails and random questions, and he was so gracious to respond so fast and answered all of our questions! He made the process so easy, and we felt so confident with everything! We will definitely recommend him to friends and family!! Thank you Mike again for adding to our wonderful wedding day memories!

Mike was the highlight of our event. I started looking for a musician very last minute for our wedding event. We were having a big cocktail party for many of our out of town guests, and wanted to add some live music to our outdoor event. Enter Mike Wilson. I cannot even begin to count how many times I was approached that evening asking about Mike, where we found him, and raves about how talented he was. People were gathered around him for most of the event, unable to take their eyes off of him. Mike was extremely accommodating and worked with me ahead of time to come up with a list of musicians and songs that we loved. His voice is absolutely incredible!
Mike was initially unavailable on my event date, which I was quite sad about, but when a last-minute cancellation cleared his schedule, I was so excited to book him because I knew he would create the perfect atmosphere. I was hosting a graduation party for my brother, whose crowd consists of hip 20-somethings, 30-somethings with kids, and a small group of older family members. Mike was able to appeal to all ages with his repertoire! He has a cool, bluesy, indie folk vibe that he brings to each song, especially the more popular pop/pop rock songs. One of my aunts who doesn't know much English said to my relatives, "Shhh...enjoy the music...he has a nice voice."
My wife and I first heard Mike play at a restaurant in Costa Mesa a few months before our wedding. After hearing a couple songs, we both commented on how great he sounded and how it would be cool if he played at our wedding. We ended up taking his card and calling him a few weeks later - what a nice guy! He is very professional, accommodating and incredibly talented. He drove 2 hours out into the middle of the desert to play a couple songs for our ceremony and during cocktail hour. He is a great musician and we received so many compliments from our friends and family about his performance. He helped make our day extremely special. Thanks Mike!
Mike helped me with a very special proposal for my lady and he was perfect! He communicated well, showed up on time, had a great attitude. I couldn't have made it so special without his help. 5 stars! Time to plan a wedding!
My Husband and I originally hired Mike as a guitarist for our reception. Months later we learned that our guitarist for our ceremony was not able to make it. Mike happily took on our entire wedding for a great price. Mike has been accommodating, kind, extremely friendly, and he's incredibly talented. My husband and me are beyond satisfied with Mike and we would recommend his to anyone! We are happy to have had him entertain for our big day.
Mike is Awesome! I hired Mike for an engagement proposal for the December Nights 15' at Balboa Parks in San Diego. He was very accommodating, flexible and he executed it perfectly. His voice is unique and very talented. I wanted a unique proposal that resembled Jimmy Fallon/The Roots band playing classroom instruments. Mike worked with us until I thought it was perfect. He even sent a demo video to show us how to play the instruments. Mike even brought his family to help out. I included some friends that made up the band and he sang Bruno Mars' Marry You song. I really can't thank Mike enough! I would definitely book Mike again and recommend him to anyone.

Mike played at my husband's 40th birthday. He was on time and professional, had a great set and an amazing voice. Highly recommend him!
Mike is amazing! We hired him to play the ceremony music and cocktail hour reception at my daughter's wedding this past weekend. She had requested three specific songs for the ceremony that were not on Mike's playlist. Mike nailed them...beautiful renditions that made her ceremony so personal and special! Mike is so talented and comes highly recommended by us. We can't wait to plan another event so we can hire him again :) Thank you, Mike!
