Hi Micky T. Just want to send a big thank you for playing at my husbands recent surprise 50th! You were fab, very entertaining, played great music and let us enjoy the occasion to its fullest. Your connection with 'the party' made for a great night had by all. We didn't want you to leave :( Guests still talking about the night. Big thumbs up from us! Carolyn & Erin Eyears, Family & friends.

My wife and I were married at Mt Uncles Distillery in Walkamin in early 2016. We had the absolute pleasure of having Michael Thomas play an acoustic set at our reception. Our brief was to create a relaxed, chilled out and fun atmosphere and he nailed this request completely. The feedback from all our guests marvelled at his musical talent and the songs he played. Michael was very professional, punctual and easy to talk to when placing the booking and on the day of our wedding. Thank you Michael for being a part of our special day and making it the success that it was. You have our highest recommendation.

"I found Michael online and within 24 hours of asking for pricing and an idea of what I was after we were booked in. Competively priced, fantastic music, had everyone raving about him for a week after saying the live music really made the night. Quick set up, casual guy with no stress or fuss. Music was laid back and suited everyone with a mix of new and old.
Would definitely use again and would recommend in a heart beat." Anna and Mark 30th Birthday
