We had a great time during our event with Michael’s performance. He played a great selection of Flamenco songs. Our guests were delighted by listening to him. Thanks Michael!!

Michael was awesome! He even emailed to check on colors so he could coordinate his apparel. He was professional, helpful, timely, and played beautifully! Was a wonderful addition to the ceremony.
