Michael Murphy played for an Engagement Party in our home and he is a super talented, personable and warm guy who can play anything you ask. He never took a break and couldn’t have been more enthusiastic or gracious! 5 Star!!!
He was the perfect touch for this special event!
Michael made our party an event to be remembered. The guests loved his warm personality and his skill for entertaining. I would definitely use him again and highly recommend him.
Make no mistake, Michael Murphy is a wonderful entertainer. He played for a 90th birthday party and knew just how to create the mood and engage the crowd. Before long, ladies were singing along and folks were dancing - some for the first time in years! He's punctual, polite, presentable and very good at his craft. We were so lucky he was available for our special event. Thank you!!!
Outstanding performance for my husband's surprise birthday party!
Michael is extremely talented! He is a fun and energetic singing pianist. He played every song request we made. It is definitely a joy to watch him play because you can easily tell he loves playing the piano/keyboard and he can sing.
Michael is an excellent performer and we would definitely book him again!!!
Wow, Michael Murphy is amazingly talented! I cannot praise him enough. We had a Wild West Saloon themed holiday party for our employees and their guests and he not only pulled off the Saloon/ honky tonk music that we requested, but also was dressed exactly like you would expect a piano man from that time period to be. He is definitely deverse in his music talents! The only thing I would change is the amount of time I allotted for him to play at our event... We could have listened to his music all night! Beautiful piano player for sure. Book him!!
Response from Jacksonville's Piano Man Michael Murphy:
