Entertaining guests worldwide: Mike is now looking for a suitable opportunity to sing and perform at the piano and entertain guests with his unique musical ability and versatility. He believes his experience of performing internationally with luxury hotels and cruise lines, his high level of professionalism and musicianship and the kind of musical repertoire and songs that he performs (classy, sophisticated jazz standards and contemporary pop/rock/acoustic) would be a perfect match for a top, exclusive, five-star hotel and clientele.
In addition to performing at the piano, Mike also performs several musical tributes and shows, including: Michael Bublé, Frank Sinatra, George Michael, Elton John and Musical Theatre.
