    Guests loved the band and I never had to worry about a thing - so professional and easy to work with!

    Their music is danceable and fun for all ages! Michael has a dynamic presence and infuses the event with upbeat positive energy. Absolutely reliable and professional and able to adapt to any special circumstance that your venue might present. Highly recommend!

    Michael is not only the consummate entertainer and performer sharing the stage with a handpicked crew of funky, soulful, R&B rockers who bring it with every tune, but as ringmaster and manager of this electric circus he brings the utmost of professionalism , service ,and hard work before and after the show. Oh, and you will dance!Our wedding party left with zero asses. Much Gratitude AREA 51!
