I've been performing weddings, events, party's, show's, etc. for the last 36 years and since 1988 in Washington and Oregon from Skamania to Cannon Beach, Seattle to Eugene, Or. and Gold Beach, Or. Live music is my passion. I perform Classical, Spanish/Flamenco, music of the 20's to the 50's, Bossa Nova, traditional Latin, Jazz standards, Gypsy Jazz, 60's and 70's Soft Rock, folk, Blues, all instrumental. See complete list below. I have a repertoire of songs with professional backing tracks that makes me sound like a full band. But not on all songs. A lot of fun. My original music is aired on KINK.fm radio in Portland, Or. and also used in satellite radio e.g. DMX, Music Choice, Muzak, Sirius in documentaries more. I work very well with everyone to making their event the best it can be. Please feel confident to contact me to discuss what is needed and wanted for your function. I have much experience and willingness to help answer any questions or concerns you may have. Here are some awesome testimonials from some of my awesome clients for you to read. Thank you for being here!
***Michael McCabe Sample Testimonial #1: "Michael McCabe is one of the most talented and competent guitar players I have ever engaged. He has a wide repertoire, ranging through pop, rock, Spanish, classical and some of his own compositions and transcriptions. He played requests ranging from Beatles (Here Comes the Sun) to "Recuerdos de la Alhambra" (probably the most difficult guitar composition ever written). His personality was as engaging as his music - he interacted very well with the guests, and was neither unapproachable nor pushy. He played all the requests that were made. To finish, he gave me one of his CD's - a thoughtful touch for a wedding performer! I will request him again, should an occasion arise, and have no reservations in recommending him for someone who needs quiet, thoughtful background music. Peter W. Manzanita, Or.
***Michael McCabe Sample Testimonial #2: Michael played for our wedding and was wonderful. He played great music with skill, and was very careful to provide mood and background music without becoming the show. We received many comments from the guest about how terrific he was and could they hire him for their parties. He was on time to set up and was not a clock watcher. I would highly recommend him for any event where you want beautiful and varied guitar music. Bill and Judy Patten,
***Michael McCabe Sample Testimonial #3: We were married in a family home over the Thanksgiving holiday. Michael's music and presence surpassed all of our expectations! Many of our guests commented how much they enjoyed his music. It was a very special addition to our celebration. Michael was professional and accommodating to work with at every step of our planning process. His calm presence was a pleasure be around the day of the wedding as well. I highly recommend Michael to anyone considering beautiful guitar music for their event. Lisa and Tony M. I've been with Gigmasters since 1999.
