Here are a few beautiful reviews I have!
"A great performer who is an even better lady and friend! Karen has helped us through two very important events/moments in our lives and has delivered at every step. Easy to work with, an amazing talent and someone we now consider a friend. You will not go wrong with Karen Michaels!" -Mark B, 4/21/2012, Wedding Ceremony, Las Vegas, NV
“I only have one word to describe Karen.. Awesome! She even took special request and sang some Disney songs as requested by the kids parents at my event. Thank you for making our reception so wonderful. My guest thought you were terrific. The restaurant's general manager was also impressed. Thanks again!!” -- Wedding Reception, Kevin B, Las Vegas
"Karen, Dennis, and Tony made our Reunion Dinner an excellent ending to our four days in Las Vegas. We had high expectations from viewing the videos, but this trio of talent far surpassed even our lofty expectations. Emails and communications flew back and forth as Karen wanted to know more about our group, the kind of music we would enjoy, and ideas she had for a little audience participation. Karen and Dennis presented us with songs from the Great American Songbook. These were songs from the 20's 30's and 40's which of course were our Glory Days and sent the group out humming old favorites. Tony's rendition of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue was awe-inspiring and his talent at the keyboard left us breathless. We were fortunate to have such outstanding performers at our dinner and highly recommend them.

“Although we were a small group Karen made us feel like our party was the most important event in the world. She was very professional and a charm. Plus she was super affordable, but having her there made all our guests feel like VIPs. I would recommend her without reservations.” -- John R, Cocktail Party, Las Vegas, NV
"Personable, easy to work with, talented and made our event a perfect experience!" -Mark B, Private Party, Las Vegas, NV
Karen Michaels is a talent powerhouse. Her shows are terrific. I particularly enjoyed hearing her sing standards and Broadway tunes recently, but she does it all. I have lived and worked in Las Vegas for over 15 years, and in that time, I have rarely seen a musician as versatile, motivated, easy to work with, and vibrant. Karen is a triple threat because she plays piano, sings, and acts. That makes her an outstanding "one-woman band" for all occasions, but I have also seen with her trios, big bands, and more. She has a gorgeous voice, a great range, a bubbly personality, a stellar repertoire, and a terrific sensibility about song choices and appropriate patter during her shows. Whether she is playing in the background or front and center, people always walk away thrilled to be entertained by Karen Michaels.
I remember when I first heard Karen, singing in a prestigious, high-end restaurant on the Las Vegas strip. Everyone around was saying "That voice belongs on Broadway!" It is so true. I am happy to see that her career has since grown by leaps and bounds. I had no doubt! Yet she remains humble and consistent, whether she is playing a restaurant or a theater or a stadium. She still connects with people. THAT is my favorite thing about Karen - her ability to connect with an audience. That is something you either have, or you don't. She's got it in spades Don't miss Karen Michaels. Go see her today! Review by: Michelle J.
I was lucky enough to hire Karen Michaels for a corporate show for one of my big medical clients in San Diego. With very little prep or rehearsal (due to some technical problems the site was having), Karen came in and won the client over with her incredible voice and audience interaction. The client was so pleased they asked for her in 2010 but she was already booked. She came in with a great attitude, was considerate to everyone and her voice and ranger were impressive. I look forward to the chance to work with her again!
