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.
