We hired Mike for our publishing company's conference reception at the National Press Club in DC. The crowd was mostly journalists and a number of political figures mingling and conversing. Even though the reception was held on the 15th floor, Mike arrived early, loaded his gear through the service elevator, and efficiently set up with plenty of time to spare. I could tell he's done this a few times...
His volume was perfect and catered great to the atmosphere. Not too loud so we couldn't talk, but audible enough to enjoy and add to the event. He was very professional, but also friendly and great to chat with. We will absolutely be hiring him again.
Mike was an amazing performer. He helped me with a very elaborate marriage proposal in Downtown Baltimore. I asked be apart of this surprise and he came through in style. My guest and now Fiancee absolutely loved Mike's performance and couldn't be happier with everything he has done. Mike has worked with me on this proposal for weeks and it turned out great. Thanks so much.
Response from Mike Heuer:
Thanks Mike! It was an absolute pleasure playing for you and your crew. You have a genuinely stellar group of friends behind you and Renee. All the best!
He is an amazing talent and was the highlight of our happy hour!
Response from Mike Heuer:
Thanks Brooke! :)
Mike is a true pro, his guitar and singing were outstanding. We will book him again...
Response from Mike Heuer:
Thanks Jay! Look forward to seeing you guys again ;)
Mike provided entertainment at my house for a graduation celebration and my guests loved him. He is very talented and his sound was great! I would highly recommend him for any type of gathering!
Mike’s voice is amazing. His personality is great. We had the best time. He’s a true entertainer.
Mike was so great! Perfect addition to our outdoor cocktail party. He was super easy to book -- all the logistics came together without a hitch. Really enjoyed his array of music! Only downside - wished we had booked him longer!! Will definitely book him again!
My fiance (husband? still getting used to that) and I knew we wanted live music for the ceremony and cocktail hour of our wedding, but both of us coming from musical families, he himself a jazz pianist for many years, knew that it would be a tall order to find someone we really liked. Mike was just what we were looking for and more. He is talented, easy to work with, willing to take on additional work (learn a whole new song for my walk down the aisle with my dad? Sure!) and we could not have been happier. Guests loved him and we count ourselves Mike Heuer fans who can't wait to catch his next gig.
Response from Mike Heuer:
Thanks so much Sarah! As I told Justin, you guys were perfect to work with in every way as well. All the best!
My Fiancé hired him for the proposal. The music was amazing but he was too. So sweet and personalble. Apparently my future husband was a nervous mess before me he was very helpful and calming. Thank you. I would love to see you at our wedding 😉
Mike did an excellent job at our private party for FOURTH OF JULY . 5 star performance .
Mike was amazing at our outdoor barn/vineyard wedding! He was the perfect addition to our ceremony and cocktail hour. Rather than giving him a list of songs to play/sing, he went ahead and "read the crowd" and that worked out perfectly. I am so glad I trusted his judgment!!
For our ceremony, he played acoustic versions of Somewhere over the Rainbow, Canon in D, and All You Need is Love. It was all perfect.
He is very talented. I highly, highly recommend him. Also I just realized that he traveled about 250+ miles roundtrip just for our wedding in Luray, VA.
Mike is the best- you should book him for your wedding or event.
We hired Mike for a neighborhood party as we have them 4-6 times per year and hire a musician about 2-3 times. We have hired several different entertainers over the past 5 years and definitely hire some of the same people over and over because we all like them so much. Mike is definitely one of those performers for our group. He is extremely professional and gets right back to you for planning purposes which is a big plus for me! He is punctual and sets up anyplace you want him. His voice is amazing and he can sing anything. He played for 4 hours and took only a few breaks. We will absolutely hire him again - his vibe is very good for a group of people who still want to chat with each other but also sit around and listen to Mike. His original music was excellent also!
Mike sang a surprise song for my daughter during her wedding ceremony. He arrived early, coordinated with the DJ and officiant, cost was reasonable, and payment was easy through paypal. The performance was spot on what I was looking for. I could not be more pleased with Mike.
Mike performed the song "Grow Old with Me" for my daughter's recent wedding ceremony. To say it was perfect is an understatement. He arrived early, coordinated with our DJ, got on board with the surprise plan, is good looking, well dressed, talented, and can sing! The price was reasonable and payment through paypal was easy. Could not have asked for more. Thank you Mike! All the best to you.
We had Mike play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He worked with me via email to pick out ceremony music and even learned a couple of pretty difficult songs I requested. All the music went off without any problems during the ceremony and was perfectly timed. His music set a great ambiance during cocktail hour. I even had some friends who are musicians compliment his style. I'd highly recommend Mike and hope I get the opportunity to see him play again in the future!
Response from Mike Heuer:
Mike was the absolute perfect person for our tailgate. He is very talented, and played a variety of music to meet our groups interests. He was also super adaptable to the environment of the event. I'll definitely book him again.
Mike was a total pleasure to have be part of our party. He was charming, sounded absolutely wonderful singing and performing, and was overall a great addition to our fiesta night! We appreciated his presence at our event and know he would be a great addition to any event. Thank you so much!
Mike played our wine tasting event for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority this October. He's extremely talented, professional, and reliable. The vibe of his music was perfect for our event - subtle, stylish, warm - and he was just great to work with as well. I'd definitely recommend him for any kind of event.
Mike did a fantastic job during our corporate event in DC. He was punctual, brought all the necessary equipment with him, and readied his setup very quickly.
His music was GREAT. All of our guests kept praising him for the lovely tunes and beautiful voice he shared with us. I will absolutely recommend Mike for any of your future social event needs. Very nice guy and easy to communicate and do business with.
Thanks Mike for helping to make our event a success!

Mike played for our wedding rehearsal and was awesome! He was very professional to deal with, had a legit setup, and wooed our guests with a great selection of music and talent. I'd highly recommend him and hope to have a chance to hire him again!
We had Mike travel down to NC for a beautiful family celebration on the river - he was kind enough to learn an important song for a small ceremony, and everyone in our small group raved about how much his beautiful music added to the day! He was easy to work with, communicated wonderfully and was extraordinarily talented! I would hands down hire him again happily (and plan to!)
Response from Mike Heuer:
Thanks Shawn (and Perry)! Definitely one of the most meaningful gigs I've experienced :). Best wishes to you guys and Ireland!
Mike played our ceremony and cocktail hour music for our outdoor wedding and was awesome! His voice and sound were just what I was looking for and set the perfect tone for the day. He was very responsive to emails and happily accommodated my new song requests for the day - and performed them beautifully. I was so excited for my processional that I walked too fast, and Mike smoothly adjusted the song without a hitch. I would definitely recommend him!
Mike did such a great job performing at our wedding! He was on time, professional, and put on a great show! He even learned a few songs for us for the wedding, which were great! Thanks Mike for making our special day so special!
Mike was awesome. We ran a little over our timeline and Mike was super patient and never once rushed us. Thank you Mike for making my wedding event so special. My wife loved it!
Wow... what can I say. Mike was outstanding from the first day I reached out to him regarding his services. He was responsive, he sent me audio of prior performances, he made recommendations for songs... Just a great experience. The day of the wedding he was there early to set up and prepare. Our officiant actually deviated a bit from the program, and Mike rolled with it perfectly. I would recommend him hands down!
Mike’s performance was truly one of a kind. He recently played at an outdoor event I hosted with 100 people in attendance and it could have not gone more smoothly. Before booking Mike I had read a past review from someone saying, “Book him while you can because he’s going to get big fast!” – and that could not have been more true. A large part of the night’s success was from Mike’s ability to play to the crowd, I received compliments on Mike’s behalf all night because of his stellar performance. He is a true artist and professional, thank you again Mike. I look forward to booking you in the future!
Mike played for my proposal and completely blew away my expectations. He was discreet with the plans and thoughtful with everything. I had a special request for a song that he performed amazingly. Thank you!
Mike was awesome! Amazing voice, great music selection, perfect for any occasion. Having Mike perform at my mom's 60th birthday really made the day special and was the perfect surprise for all our guests. We can't thank him enough :)
Mike did a fantastic job as the musician at our wedding ceremony. He was able to play acoustic versions of the songs we wanted even though they weren't initially on his list of recommended songs. We had multiple guests come up to us afterwards to say he did a great job. Mike was quick to respond to any emailed questions and he plays gigs in the area so we were able to check him out before signing the contract with confidence. With all of the other moving parts involved in planning an outdoor wedding at a family farm, it was great knowing that our music was covered by a professional who showed up on time, performed well, and was a very good sport about the hot and buggy weather. Thanks again Mike!
I hired Mike for our wedding in November 14,2015 and he was amazing , my family still today talks about his proformance, he is soulful when he sings and really commands the room with is music and professionalism. He made my wedding special and memorable . I would definitely him again for another event . If you hire Mike you will not be disappointed , Better do it soon before Mike becomes a big star and starts selling out arenas..
Mike is the key to throwing a successful event, and should be everyone's secret ingredient for their next party. Totally professional, reliable, easy going and blended in with the party as if he'd been hanging out with our friends & family for years. What I really appreciated about Mike's playing & singing (other than his fantastic voice) was his volume adjusts to the crowd conversation so there's lovely entertainment in the background while people are visiting. We'll be booking with Mike in the future, and I hope our friends & family will to--everyone was so impressed and the question I got asked most that evening was "where did you find Mike?" Great experience. Thanks Mike!
Attended a party for my cousin in Virginia in April. I helped her fidn the entertainment for the event and found Mike at this site, he was exactly what we expected and more. Very talented and versatile in his music selection. I personally love his original music and bought CD's for myself, my cousin, the person whom's house we used for the party. I have been playing his CD in my car everday since...AWESOME!!
Response from Mike Heuer:
Mike was so professional and was great with communication. I never had an issue getting a hold of him and I felt immediately that I could trust him and that he was reliable. He came on time to the venue and was ready to perform when needed. He puts his own unique spin on popular songs and his own music is excellent. I can't wait to see him perform throughout the year and will definitely keep in touch for future parties!
Mike was the perfect musician for our Wedding. He is such a sweet guy and a wonderful guitarist. Our guests loved his ceremony and cocktail hour music. He worked with us to pick the songs we wanted to hear, and overall made our day so memorable.
Thank you Mike!
I highly recommend Mike for any event you have. He is a talented musician; singer and guitarist in a variety of genres: Rock, Reggae, Funk/Soul, Acoustic Pop and Country, as well as some original music. He is definitely an up and coming artist you should hear. Everyone at my event absolutely loved him!
I'd like to thank Mike Heuer for an outstanding performance. I hired Mike to open for a comedy show in North Carolina and was pleased to see how much the audience enjoyed him. He was on time and very professional, which I truly appreciate because his professionalism represented my show. I'm looking forward to working with Mike again in the near future. Thanks for job well done.
Kz's House of Talent
Mike played at our house in Annapolis in December. We hosted a party for our son, celebrating his retirement from naval service. I learned that Mike had lived in Germany for 3 years and speaks the language fluently! Which was a welcome opportunity for us as our son spent 14 years of his life living in Vienna, and I myself am Austrian. Mike played for us for about three hours, which really set the mood for our get-together. Although Mike knows over a hundred songs to pick from, I simply asked him to choose songs appropriate for the occasion. He read the atmosphere perfectly. I am very happy with his professionalism and musical talent and highly recommend him to anyone that is considering live music at their house party!
We hired Mike for my husband's IT company's Christmas party this year. We saw him originally at a local venue and loved his style. He has a wonderful voice and we were so impressed we bought his CD and have kept it in the car since. When we decided to have live music for the party he came to mind right away. I would recommend him highly.
Mike played at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in October 2015. He was wonderful to work with, and added such a nice personal touch to our special day. He accommodated all of my musical requests from Adele to Ray Lamontagne and nailed them all. Our friends and family are still talking about how great he was!
-Emily and Tom Carcone
Mike's performance at my wedding reception was unbelievable. It was something that everyone still was talking about the next day. He was accommodating to guests' song requests and at the end of the performance he was very personable with everyone. I would highly recommend you hire Mike for any event before he goes big and becomes a star.
Mike played a full 3-day weekend grand opening for the new 7001 Arlington Apartments in Bethesda. He was awesome! On time, super friendly, excellent guitar player and singer. All the staff here loved the performance. 5 stars all around. Thanks Mike!
Mike is exactly what my party needed. Guest are literally calling to tell me how much they enjoyed the music and his style. My son is getting married soon and I hope Mike is available. Thanks Mike!!!
Mike performed at our neighborhood swim club for an end-of-summer happy hour. He was great -- showed up early and was ready to perform when the party started. Sound was awesome -- he played just the right tunes and at a perfect volume so as to provide a festive ambiance without being intrusive. I highly recommend Mike.
He's also responsive and easy to work with.
Response from Mike Heuer:
Thanks Olivia ;)
We held several parties at our house this summer, and we invited Mike to perform at two of these events. Our friends and family loved his music, and he brought such a relaxing dimension to these casual gatherings.
My wife and I enjoyed his music so much that we invited him back again! Our friends were anxious to come to the next Friday night get together, because they said it was so relaxing to sit in the backyard and listen to some awesome music on a beautiful summer night.
We look forward to having Mike join us for our next party. Thanks Mike!
-Greg & Emily Sindlinger
Response from Mike Heuer:
Thanks Greg ;)
Mike performed at our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was great to work with; responsive and flexible with the songs we asked him to play. He was also very communicative about feedback about the songs we picked, giving recommendations to best fit the song/mood, and also when the bongo player we booked couldn't make it, he was upfront and filled the spot quickly. We received several compliments from friends how they enjoyed the music and 'laid-back vibe' at the cocktail hour.
We had seen him perform at two other weddings and we would definitely recommend him to others.
Kelly and Bryan
Response from Mike Heuer:
I really appreciated the level of professionalism on my proposal date and sticking to the timeline outlined to a T. Without your help the proposal wouldn't have had as much sentimental value and meaning. Your guitar rendition of "I Swear" by All 4 One was amazing and helped make the big day one to remember for the rest of our lives. My fiance loved it and I couldn't have done it the same without your help, I really appreciate it.
Response from Mike Heuer:
Thanks Barry ;)
Mike, just wanted to take the time to thank you for your performance at our private event. I appreciate the song selection, as well as the fact that you were aware and considerate of the volume of your performance - our guests appreciated that your music did not prevent all from being able to talk to each other. Please don't hesitate to use me as a reference.
Mike and his band played for the Sassafras River Association’s “10th Birthday Bash” last fall. The location was gorgeous - a private home on a cliff overlooking the Sassafras - as the sunset. With storm clouds threatening throughout the evening, the setting was dramatic and memorable. I had never heard Mike play and did not give him a play list. He came so highly recommended by someone I trust, I just asked him to use his instincts and play what he thought the crowd would want to hear. Within minutes of arriving, one couple began dancing! Their dance broke that early event ice and set a charming tone for the evening. For the rest of the evening, the music was perfectly suited to the mood, no small feat given that our crowd of 150 people ranged from early twenties to our oldest guest who was celebrating his 95th birthday! Not only are they great musicians, but they’re also just good guys. Great to work with, flexible and gracious.
“Mike was a great addition to our wedding ceremony. He was able to learn a few songs I selected in a short amount of time and it just made it so much better. He did an amazing job! Hire mike for any of your events!”
