I perform weddings/receptions, corporate events, proposals, cafe/restaurants and similar scenarios. I've completed my bachelors from the University of Texas Brownsville and my masters from the University of Texas San Antonio. During my studies I've had the opportunity to perform in countless concerts all around the U.S.
Examples of my repertoire:
Pachebel's Canon in D
Something by The Beatles
Bach's Prelude from Cello Suite No. 1
What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong
Various holiday music
Romanza by Anonymous
As well as various jazz and spanish tunes accompanied by backtracks.
On time and receptive to requests
Michael played beautifully for my wedding and was able to take a couple of requests. I would definitely recommend him for those interested.
Michael played my wedding yesterday and did an awesome job. He nailed songs that he had little time to prepare for; I failed to give him a complete list in time, and he still met our request needs. He is extremely polite and prompt. We will hire him again in the future.
Hired him for a corporate event in another state from where I am, as soon as the event was over I got feedback and they said he was great. It was easy to communicate with him prior to the event as well. Can't wait to hire him again!!!
Price Range: $100-400 (Extra fee for 25+ miles of travel)
Gig Length: 20 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
A wide variety of music genres such as romantic, classical, jazz, spanish, contemporary, and pop!
