From the FOB at Shenorck Shore Club:  “Everything about Michael and his band is professional and absolutely first-rate.  They are all top-of-the-game musicians who can play in every genre.  Michael is a fantastic vocalist, and a pitch-perfect emcee to boot.  From my guests I’ve heard nothing but praise for him and his band, who have entertained at my two daughters’ weddings.  Michael also makes the logistical details easy.  He does a lot of the work for you.  There are many, many good reasons that reviews of the band are filled with superlatives.  If I had another daughter who was getting married, my first call would be to Michael, to save the date.”
