The kitchen staff at Pacific Tower Seattle reported dancing in the kitchens on our Feb. 23, 2019 performance. At tear-down time they came out to say “You guys are THE most incredible live band we’ve ever heard here”. They didn’t throw the party, but they got all the fun just working for it!

Will you be our MC they ask? But of course! This is a natural part of my work. I deliver any/all announcements clearly and graciously throughout the night as needed, to keep the flow going at our events. It amazes me how many people wonder if they’ll need to hire someone else to make the necessary announcements for them – like a dj? For that, seriously? Mais oui! Cest si bon! We have you covered!
Michael Benson and his band is by far the most awesome, fun, enthusiastic, best sounding band I have ever experienced in my life. His passion and intensity was contagious as everyone danced all night long. You just cannot sit still when they start playing! He knows what songs to play when…he can work a party like he is a magician.
