Michael was excellent to work with for our Vegas wedding. He was punctual, well prepared & played beautifully. At the last minute we discovered we needed a microphone and Michael brought us one. He did an excellent job. I wouldn't hesitate to book him!! I wish he lived closer to our home state, we would have booked him for our reception. Thank you Michael!Sent on 10/08/2018

Book Michael Root and don't think twice. Great communicator. Very sweet and gracious. Michael was so easy to work with--not to mention incredibly accomodating, punctual, talented and is experienced with weddings. He was eager to please and patient during my song decision making process. After the ceremony he sought me out to thank us before leaving.Sent on 07/01/2016

One week before the wedding the musician for the wedding ceremony had to cancel. We found Michael on Weddingwire and liked the videos of his classical guitar that he had posted. He was very accommodating to our situation and was even able to come to the rehearsal. Michael is very talented, professional and easy to work with.Sent on 09/12/2015
Michael Root is a grade A professional guitar player. If you like acoustic, classical, or flamenco guitar I highly recommend him for any event.
