“Dear Mike, Thanks so much for helping us make our Mardi-Gras Themed 2004 Kick-Off Party such a great success. We had many, many compliments on the band, and even more on your playing in the cocktail area. It made a real difference to get the people in the spirit before dinner. I would highly recommend that for any other dinner you might play for in the future. Enclosed is your payment of --------, which we happily pay to you and your group. If you ever need a recommendation �\” count me in.” - Denise Miller �\” Monroe Tractor

Dear Mike, thank you so much for the services you provided to Lollypop Farm during Barktober Fest 2003. Your generosity made it possible for us to host approximately 2,000 people, and make just over $45,00 in donations, sponsorships and sales. The weather was uncooperative but that didn’t dampen the spirits of our walkers and visitors. Your help was key to the positive response we received from those people who forged through the inclement weather to support us. What fun it was for us to watch the kids interact with you! You really have a gift. -Betty Umoff �\” Humane Society

Mike, Thank you for coming to perform for the children of Rush-Henrietta School-Age Child Care Program. They loved your music, especially the younger ones. You are an excellent entertainer. - Kay Lyons �\” Rush-Henrietta School District
