Acoustic Music and Photography Packages for Your Big Moment

Couple's Reviews


Mike played guitar and sang during our engagement, and it could not have been more special. He is a wonderful guy and beautiful musician, and it was an absolute pleasure to share our moment with him. We would highly recommend him for any special occasion.

Thanks again,

Talented, Genuine, and Professional!

I did my proposal through Mike in Weehawken, NJ. He was excellent! Mike was very open to all of my proposal ideas and flexible as well. He was incredibly easy to get in touch with as he would make time for me to contact him whenever he could.

He was also personally invested in my proposal. It felt more like one of my close buddies was performing at my proposal rather than it being a business transaction. Mike sounded great on the guitar, and even took it upon himself to learn a new song just for my proposal. I chose Mike because of the excellent reviews he has on GigSalad, and I got to experience first hand why those reviews are all so incredibly positive.

Thanks again Mike for everything! Your professionalism, talent, and genuine care are very appreciated!

Surprise Proposal in Central Park

I'm going to say straight away that I could not be happier to have chosen Mike over all the musicians I'd looked at and contacted.

Mike has such a lovely heart and is such a genuine person it was perfect to have this kind of personality and persona when proposing to my partner. I honestly would recommend him to anyone playing something intimate like I did.

As I'm from the UK, Mike also recommended locations to me with photos which were a HUGE help. He learnt a few specific songs for me as well and he was extremely professional in terms of response efficiencey, approachability and knowledge.

Mike, from the bottom of my heart I would like to say thank you. I can't use words strong enough to show my appreciation to what you did and how you did it. You smiled the whole time, even though you must have been freezing! You dressed perfectly for the occasion (the photos are amazing) and you made me feel at ease being able to ask a million questions. I'm hugely greatful and I couldn't recommend you strongly enough.

Thank you Mike.

Absolutely unforgettable experience

I had the pleasure of meeting Mike a few months ago, back in June, when I first began planning my surprise proposal at Central Park. He was very professional, and worked with me every step of the way. He offered ideas, and suggested additional services that helped me finalize some of the details of the event. Mike and I were in constant communication throughout the week, prior to the event date, making it an easy and pleasant experience. On the day of the proposal, everything was well coordinated; everyone was on location, and on time. I was able to surprise my now finance, with our song (Over The Rainbow), which Mike played on the ukulele under the Gothic Bridge, and with our family over the bridge holding "Will You Marry Me" signs. Needless to say, she was speechless, and she had an unforgettable experience that is truly in part because of Mike making it memorable. Myself, my fiancé, and our entire family will never forget that moment. Thanks to Mike, we had a photographer (Howard Baden) who capture every moment for us. The pictures came out great, and we appreciate Mike's dedication to making sure we were completely satisfied with his services. Not only would I recommend Mike's services, but I will keep him in mind for any future events I may have.

Mike, it was a pleasure doing business with you.

Thank you,

John & Amber

Ultimate Wedding Proposal - Consummate Professional

I knew Mike from the NYC music scene and had lofty expectations after seeing him perform around the city by himself and also with bands but hiring him for my wedding proposal he really blew me out of the water. He is the consummate professional. I told him the ideas that I had and he pushed the envelope for me. He went above the call of duty to check out the space that I had planned out, worked perfectly with the photographer to make a plan, and when it came time for game day he knocked it out of the park. My girlfriend (now finance) and I were just taking the dogs for a long walk out in Williamsburg by the waterfront as far as she knew but when we came to a clearing by the river where you can see the skyline and the bridge we heard a guitarist by the water (Mike) playing one of my favorite songs so we walked over to investigate. As we approached I just asked him, "hey man, know any songs in the key of B?" which was our agreed upon que and he launched into a beautiful rendition of The Pogues classic "Love You Till The End" while I got down on one knee to propose. Following a huge round of applause from the crowd that had gathered in the park Mike still had yet another surprise, a rose for my future wife and a small bottle of champagne and two glasses for us to enjoy while the sun went down behind the Manhattan skyline. Couldn't have asked for anything more. The memories and pictures that we got we will cherish for the rest of our lives! I could nor recommend him more... A total All Star.

Awesome Experience

Mike was very helpful and performed everything above and beyond my expectations. Would recommend for any event.

                                                                                                                                     Blake - New Orleans

Unforgettable Engagement

I contacted Mike about helping to plan the details of our engagement to make it truly special. I knew I wanted to propose while on a hike to make it a true surprise, and worked with Mike to come up with some amazing ideas. After I told Mike I wanted to propose at Minnewaska State Park (NY) he had an immediate recommendation for a spot (which was not going to be easy for him to get to) but it ended up not being feasible as the trail was closed for repairs. Instead, we had discussed moving this to a waterfall site which was actually much closer to the parking lots, but he was previously unfamiliar with that location (the park is massive). A week or two prior to the engagement date, he sent me a video of the waterfall which his wife took that day, and said "this is the place - wow!" Mike is a true professional and made it seem like he just happened to be there when we arrived. My then girlfriend had no idea that he was there for us, even after he approached to offer to take a picture using my iphone camera. Mike seamlessly helped me transition from there to popping the question. There was no awkwardness at all and in the moment immediately before at least, he helped make it incredibly easy and stress free. I also asked for him to provide a photographer (Howard) who captured the moments leading up to, during and after I proposed. In my opinion, this was money significantly well spent. No staged, corny engagement photos for us - thanks to Mike and Howard we have the real thing! I cant recommend contacting Mike for your engagement planning enough. You wont regret it.

Mike was fantastic. He was a pleasure to work with from the first email to the day of the engagement. He was on point with responding to emails quickly, and I never had a doubt in my mind that I had chosen the right guy for the job. If you are looking for a guitar player for your proposal, Mike is the right choice!

Mike was so professional and easy to work with. I only used the Suns for a two piece ( just mike and his guitarist) for my small backyard BBQ proposal. They even rushed for me when my bride to be decided to come home early that day. They will learn any song you need and have such a great diverse set list. Would 100% recommend these guys for any type of event.

                                                                                                                                        Mike - NYC

I hired Mike to play guitar in Central Park while I sang a song to my girlfriend in a surprise proposal to her. From the start, Mike was a huge help in ensuring this would be a day neither I or my fiancee will ever forget. I am not from New York and Mike took the time to discuss various proposal locations and help me pick the perfect spot. He took the time to learn a new song for the occasion, organized a photographer for the day, helped come up with a logistical plan and even helped with restaurant suggestions. Mike was available to talk about the event whenever I needed to reach him and he was more than happy to offer any help/suggestions he could and really helped to take the pressure off of me. My marriage proposal would not have gone nearly as smoothly without the enthusiasm and professionalism of Mike. His musical talents were spectacular and he was able to play all of the songs I had requested. I cannot say enough great things about him. He was an absolute pleasure to work with.

I couldn’t thank Mike enough for the role he played in my proposal. Not only did he serve as the musician, he helped me plan every step of it. I found Mike through Gid Salad and since then he was an integral part of my planning process from scoping out the locations, and guiding me through everything. I started talking to him months before my proposal and I can honestly say he was such a pleasure to work with and always made himself available when I had questions or needed any help. He came up with back up plans, went above and beyond what I could have asked from him and knew every song I wanted him to play during my proposal. He also helped me find the photographer and videographer and made sure everything was as smooth as possible. I not only recommend working with Mike if you need a Musician but I can assure he will do what he can to make sure your special day will go as smoothly as possible and the most memorable day of your life.

Thank you Mike for making our engagement so memorable!! A lot of work/prep and pressure was involved in this surprise proposal and we just want to say that Mike was the icing on the cake. I (confused gf being proposed to) had no idea what was going on , all I could hear was his wonderful music that really, in essence set the mood to the entire proposal. It was so fitting and just perfect! Thanks again,

Icing on the cake!

Mike played while I proposed to my girlfriend in Central Park. It was magical. I requested three songs and Mike knew them all and played them beautifully on a frigid February night. He was always willing to discuss details about how the proposed was going down and made himself available via text, cell, email at any time. He is a professional is every sense of the word and is truly gifted musician. 5 stars are not enough!

Mike is such a wonderful musician and a real pleasure to work with. He was always prompt with his responses, and helped bounce ideas for the location of the proposal. He even met with me in Central Park to scout the specific areas I considered, and then he recommended an amazing spot where I ended up doing the proposal. He learned a new song in about a week! My new fiancé thought he did an amazing job! She loved every second and couldn't hold back the tears! He recommended a great photographer as well, BJ, who captured some wonderful photos of us. His pictures had our friends and family crying during the slideshow. I highly recommend working with Mike. I promise he will make your proposal a day to remember for a lifetime.

Mike is fantastic and made my proposal perfect. I gave him very short notice (2 days) to learn an obscure song that was very important to both my girlfriend (now fiance') and I, and he really nailed it. Afterwards he played a beautiful Beatles song for us as well.

Mike was also extremely professional in how we set up the surprise proposal. If you're considering a music accompaniment for a special occasion I highly recommend him.

From the start of our communication Mike went above and beyond with my requests to make the proposal to my now fiancé the best day of our lives... So far! His kindness and professionalism shone through from beginning to end and we can not recommend him highly enough. Even to suggest the photographer to join him made the experience and our journey even more spectacular. I was trying to organise the proposal in New York from our home in Sydney and I honestly believe I could not have done it without Michaels help.

Thank you Michael for everything you have done we are eternally grateful.

Mike is *awesome*!!! He serenaded my new fiance and I at the Bethesda Fountain when Jason proposed a few weeks ago. He even learned new songs (country! Hey, I'm from the south!) to play songs that were special to us. He definitely went above and beyond to make our moment so memorable and special. We can't thank you enough :) I will always remember that moment, made even more special by your music! Thank you!!! We definitely recommend Mike :)
