Why hire Michael Tesler - Acoustic Musician?
From a backyard party, to a happy hour, corportate event, or wedding, Mike Tesler is the ideal choice for live acoustic music, and entertainment for any occasion! Whether as a live musician, or a DJ, energy and excitement fill the room whenever Mike performs. He always entertains a crowd, priding himself on delivering a great show with excellent musicianship, and a charismatic personality. Familiar and comfortable with a wide range of music, Mike easily moves through a wide range of musical styles, playing exactly what your crowd wants to hear! If music is part of your event, make Mike Tesler part of your plan!
When Latin music legend Johnny Pacheco is your uncle, and your mom sang with Rock and Roll pioneer Dion Dimucci, music is part of your genetic code! Such is the musical pedigree of Michael Tesler. Growing up in a house filled with music, Mike started out as a drummer, but a chance meeting with his brother’s collection of Jimi Hendrix records inspired Mike to pick up the guitar at the age of 14. Since that time, Mike has put his heart and soul into every single note that he has ever played, and sang. Mike’s style is the product of numerous influences, and he is familiar and comfortable playing music from a variety of musical genres. As a singer and guitar player, Mike uses both his head and heart to deliver a unique musical experience at his every performance.
I am influenced by a wide range of artists. Many of these artists are of the "classic rock" genre; i.e. the Rolling stones, the Eagles, Cat Stevens. I've also been influenced and inspired by country artists, and acoustic singer/songwriters such as John Mayer, Dave Matthews and too many others to list!
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 60 - 240 minutes
Audience members will have an exciting, enjoyable experience of great music, performed acoustically. A wide, diverse range of music will be performed, with artists ranging from The Beatles. Jason Mraz, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, John Mayer, and numerous others. The music and entertainment doesn't stop for a minute, as I DJ in between music sets, playing the best current, and classic dance, rock, pop, and party music. Additionally, if the audience wants to get involved, karaoke is definitely on the menu! All of the music is presented through top-of-the-line equipment at a "just right" volume.
I am extremely self-sufficient. All that's needed is a reliable electrical outlet. For events outside, I would prefer a spot in the shade.
From a small gathering in a backyard, to a large club, or catering hall, great care and pride is taken to ensure that your friends, guests, and customers enjoy an amazing listening experience. My rig is comprised of instruments and amplification products that are regarded among the best in their field. Listed below are the items used at my performances:
Guitar: At the foundation of my sound, I utilize the Taylor 214ce Acoustic Guitar.
Mixer: For the best possible live sound reproduction,I employ the BOSE T1 Tonematch Audio Engine
Loudspeakers: For the majority of performances, I will rely on the BOSE L1 Compact System, which needs to be seen, as well as heard to be believed! For larger performances, or outside venues, Mike will also employ QSC K12 Powered Speakers. Additionally, both units allow me to easily access any house PA system (including a home stereo!) for complete sound coverage at a reasonable and comfortable volume level.
Effects: A mainstay in my live setup is the BOSS VE-20 Vocal Processor. This unit enables me to create unique vocal stylings that are virtually impossible for any other solo musician!
Cables: For the best overall sound quality, I rely on Mogami GOLD Microphone Cables, and Monster Cable instrument cables
I have over 150 songs in my play list. Most of these songs are familiar, fun, classic tunes from the 60's to today; from the Allman Brothers, to Zac Brown. From "Brown Eyed Girl," to "Red Solo Cup." From Johnny Cash to Jack Johnson. A little something for everyone; classic rock, party rock, dance, and even some country.
