Michael is extremely professional and brings an absolutely engaging musical ambiance. He’s been an excellent communicator. I really appreciate that he brings his sound system and is willing to let us use his mic for the officiant during the ceremony as well. His backing tracks for his songs also helped to make the music feel full, even just as one performer! Could not recommend him enough.
