Mike Simons - Acoustic Guitarist / Vocalist - Bracknell, South East Event Location: Alaska Event Type: Multiple Holland Cruise ships 25th August 2015
Mike was the perfect person to listen too. We could visit, sing along, laugh at the waiters singing with him as they served. He always took requests. Very personable.
