James Michael Day is a master Pianist and Singer, with a unmatched repertoire of popular songs from every era. I can entertain any crowd from a small private dinner to a large arena. I play at the top Piano Bars in SF every week and am the Organist for the San Jose Sharks NHL team.
I was looking for a singing pianist to perform at my mother’s Catholic funeral. I had been referred to the two choirs at the church but no one returned my call. Thank God for GigSalad because without them I would have never found James Michel Day. The church is very strict about what type of music can be performed during a service, it had to be only Christian music. and he was very helpful in suggesting song selections. He showed up an hour early and brought his own sound equipment. Thank God he did because the maintenance person responsible for setting up the sound system called in sick. The church office person did not know anything and she got someone else who only set up the priest's microphone but not the musician. James was dressed professionally in a dark suit and he played beautifully. Everyone was impressed and said it was one of the most beautiful services they had ever attended. This could not have been accomplished without James Michel Day and I'm grateful my mom had a beautiful service.
I've used James Michael Day, Mikey Day, to record, produce, sing and mix over twenty songs to date. He is fantastic. Very professional, he will listen as to where your going with a song and then will work together with you to come up with something quite lovely. Check out the music of the Eclectic Songwriters Society (ESS) at their website, Spotify, Youtube and more to hear his work. Considering I write music for a hobby (not really professional), it is amazing what he can do for just a simple song. I recommend him for Production, Audio Engineering, Singing, Musicianship and just support. He's a great friend now. Go Sharks!
Um, can't I rate someone 10 stars?? I can't recommend James enough. His talent is off the charts. He brought much needed life to our party. When I was checking out his demo videos, I wasn't convinced his profile was real, he was that good. But I was not disappointed and neither were my guests. Everyone raved about "the piano player!" He can play any genre of music and takes all requests. There didn't seem to be anything he couldn't play! If you want a fun, friendly, professional, punctual, amazingly talented musician to liven up your gathering, hire James!!

What to Expect
The audience would see me do a solo piano/vocal show that focuses on crowd interaction and requests. I love to play songs that people ask for, it gets them excited and involved and keeps everyone engaged and having a great time! My experience at piano bars makes this a very easy thing for me.
James Michael Day has been playing live shows since the age of 8 when he had his first paying hotel gig! He is now in his 30s and has played over 5000 shows. He is the full time Organist for the San Jose Sharks NHL team and plays at all the top piano bars in SF, and regularly plays in Vegas and beyond. He knows over 2000 songs and can entertain any audience with his musical skills and genuine personality.
Additional Booking Notes
