“Jurassic Mike is, by far, our most popular performer. Our customers always have a great time when Mike takes the stage. He plays a little something for everyone and, clearly, enjoys what he is doing. – Trevor Lundy, Casino Guest Services Manager, St. Eugene Golf, Resort & Casino
We have had the pleasure of hearing Mike perform on several occasions and in several different settings. Whether with a group of friends enjoying a summer afternoon patio – or with a group of staff members at an evening grand opening event – we were amazed at what a great entertainer he was and how much fun Mike created.
He is an incredibly talented musician who sings and plays a variety of instruments, and adds wit and humor along with the well known songs he plays. He can get any audience and any age group engaged. He is so natural at building a relationship with his audience – like you have been friends for years.
Although I have not hired Mike directly, I know those who have, and I have heard time and again how great Mike is to work with. Words like “flexible” and “accommodating” are used to describe his working style.
I would look for an opportunity to hire Mike in the future – and I know that anyone who does will not be disappointed.
My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Mike perform at Kokanee Springs Golf Course in 2007 where we were spending a weekend on a bit of a golf holiday. We couldn’t believe how talented Mike was and how he literally had the entire lounge full of people up dancing and having fun that Saturday night. We had a great time.
Mike is a very talented one man show who sings and plays guitar and/or keyboard to most of your favorite songs while adding in a steady mix of humour along the way to keep everything upbeat and fun. He takes requests and tries to get everyone involved.
I have managed several entertainment properties and Mike was just the kind of talent we look for to entertain in our lounges as a value added service for our patrons. The next spring (2008) we invited Mike up to perform on our newly refurbished lounge patio during the Edmonton Indy Race weekend. Mike did an outstanding job and the feedback from our patrons and employees was very positive, so much so that we invited him back on several occasions to perform at one property or the other during notable events such as; the Edmonton Capital Exhibition, Canadian Finals Rodeo weekends.
At another property, we had just completed a major renovation and once again I arranged for him to perform during our Grand Opening weekend. And once again he exceeded our expectations, impressing everyone in attendance, so much so that we hired him on several more occasions, such as Calgary Stampede week.
Mike continues to add new material to his show and is always well received. As great of a performer as Mike is, he is an even better person. He is extremely flexible and accommodating and I would not hesitate to recommend Mike to any person or business that truly wants to add entertainment and completely enjoy their event.
