Mike was truly wonderful. A gentleman in himself and a splendid saxophonist. I genuinely recommend him as a performer – he even made an effort to dress in the 1920’s theme I had set. Thank you Mike! :)

Mike was a really good choice for our son’s 21st birthday celebration as it was a family and friends day time event and he fitted perfectly. It was good to be able to hear a short demo on line prior to booking as I had an idea of what his repertoire was and he certainly met all expectations. 
I would certainly be happy to book him again if the situation required, but would also recommend the Agency for anyone else looking for acts.
