We cannot recommend Michael highly enough. He is such a lovely person and he has a beautiful voice, perfect for weddings and special occasions! We could not have asked for a more relaxed and gracious musician. Our wedding was outdoors by the water and the sound quality was superb both outdoors and inside the venue.

Michael was fantastic to work with in the planning stages too. We spoke several times before the wedding and a few emails back and forward with ideas and then we met up at the venue and discussed how the day would go.
Michael offered helpful suggestions around song choice and even learnt a new song for us which he sang beautifully. We are very grateful and he definitely went over and above for us.

Michael was well prepared and relaxed on the day and played before, during and after the ceremony as well as the reception. Our guests were also very impressed with Michael and we received lots of feedback on what an awesome voice he has.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michael for any event. He is easy going and friendly. We were very lucky he was available to play on our wedding day.

Thank you for adding your special touch to our wedding… you helped to make our day Perfect!

Keri Crossan - Customer Care Manager

Thanks for your contribution to a great evening… I have had nothing but good reports from the attendees!

I was organising a Christmas Function and I was looking for an acoustic performer during the sit down dinner part of the evening. Michael made it very easy. He is quick to respond and made my life better by being able to assist with the entertainment for later in the night as well. The result was a fantastic 5 hour event that flowed seamlessly through dinner, formalities and onto dancing.

I was impressed with the song selections, style and the overall sound was amazing, hitting the exact spot for our Corporate event, and elevating it well above our usual DJ entertainment.
I have received numerous compliments on the entertainment and questions on how I found them. I would highly recommend Michael individually and in addition, his band, to anyone having an event.
We will definitely be using them again for future events.

I would like to say how happy we were with Michael! Everyone was super impressed with his music, singing and professionalism. I would highly recommend Michael for any corporate event.

Our entertainment was fabulous and absolutely perfect for the event. A big thanks to you for organising everything Michael. Your wonderful acoustic music and vocals blew me away… you are very talented. I loved every minute and it all worked wonderfully with our theme. You played to the crowd so the dance floor was rarely empty.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the night.

Thank you Michael for a great night of awesome music. You really listened to our music preferences and when you arrived, you got to know everyone which was great. I was impressed with your sound and your talent was evident through your playing. You tailored your performance to the small venue and we enjoyed dancing into the night.
I definitely recommend Michael who provided great service and is a very talented musician.

Tracy Cooper

Thank you for the fantastic job you did at our party. Everyone absolutely raved about you and we so appreciated you delivering so many great tunes in the time allotted. I wish it could have all gone on longer – you made it a fabulous night!
If we ever need someone again to entertain at an event, you will be the first person I think of and we are more than happy to refer you to friends and family as well.

Thanks again Michael – you are truly talented!!

Maria Nolan
Managing Director – SeeChange Consulting

We hired Michael for a joint 50th birthday party at Broadbeach recently. He was an absolute professional from start to finish. All interactions with him the week before were very pleasant and he clearly outlined his role, what he would be doing for us, the price and the timing for the evening. On the night, he arrived on time and given we were a little late starting with the music due to late arrivals and speeches, he then sang and played non stop until the party ended (even though he was entitled to breaks). The crowd absolutely loved him, as we did.
I could not recommend Michael highly enough – so talented and working with him was seamless!

Sue & Adam

Michael Hickey performed at my husband’s surprise 60th and his music was an integral part of the success of the party! In the lead up to the party all my special requests were met and he took the time to come and inspect the venue to be sure of his set up on the night. He judged the mood of the party and varied the music accordingly and played for 4 hours with only a short break. Later in the evening, we had great fun dancing to a variety of classic and contemporary hit songs.
It is my pleasure to recommend Michael; not only is he a great musician, he is polite, reliable, professional and a true gentleman.
Our best wishes and thanks to you Michael!

Sandy Shervey

Thank you Michael… You made my night and your music absolutely made my 50th Sunset Soiree just perfect. So much talent. Every one of my party guests, and myself, were thrilled with your music. We all could have danced all night long. Your song list was spot on and you are so polite and professional. I will have to come up with a reason for another night because I wish we could do it all again. Having you there perfectly completed my party.
So many compliments to you Michael… I will certainly be recommending you!

Sam Pocock
Burleigh Heads

Michael is a true professional musician. His musicianship and vocals were on point, with a repertoire that was diverse and perfectly suited to our event. Further, Michael was immaculately presented, courteous, flexible and a pleasure to deal with. I heartily recommend Michael to add ambience to your event.

Ronny & Jo
Surfers Paradise

Michael has an amazing talent! His singing and guitar skills are spot on.
He is so pleasant, happy and friendly. We had a 40th at our place and Michael singing was the cherry on top.
Thank you so much again!

Dennis Perry
Managing Partner | Advice First

I first saw Michael play at a restaurant one evening, and instantly thought “that guy would be perfect for my upcoming birthday party”. Well, Michael did indeed end up playing at my party – a professionally catered event with 120 family and friends attending. Potentially this was a “tough audience”, with a number of musicians in the crowd… but the feedback was off the charts good. In conversations and text messages after the event, I had the following comments:
• That guy you had playing was amazing
• Awesome voice
• Read the audience beautifully and played all the right music
• Very talented musician
• He didn’t stop all night
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Michael Hickey to any person or any corporate looking for a genuinely nice bloke to deliver a first class entertainment experience.

Paul & Mia

We were really blessed to have Michael perform at Mia’s 50th. He really engaged with us and listened to what we were after for our event, performing a mix of popular background dinner tunes, as well as some more upbeat numbers later in the evening. All our guests commented on the great atmosphere and music and we thank Michael for his services. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great all-round performer to really set the mood for any occasion.

Thanks again so much for the night. It is certainly looked back on with fond memories and could not have been a more enjoyable way to celebrate this special occasion.

Luke & Alana

Michael was the perfect addition to our wedding day! He learnt 4 new songs for us and played them better than we could have ever imagined! Michael was with us for most of the day and I believe his beautiful music and friendly persona made our day even more perfect! I would highly recommend Michael for any event… his professionalism and quality of music is second to none!

Jon & Jess
Pacific Pines

Michael has truly been amazing and gone above and beyond what we could have expected. Michael attended our wedding rehearsal to help with feeling confident with timing, music and setup. We love Michael’s music, he learnt two songs for our wedding and nailed it! The atmosphere he created for us was perfect and we had so many compliments.

Michael has such a great personality, easy going and happy to help with anything you need making planning our wedding stress free and enjoyable. We go see Michael’s gigs as much as we can and brings back memories of our awesome day.

We highly recommend Michael – Honestly book him for your next event!

Carla Chesters

I met Mike when he was performing at a friend’s birthday party. The music he plays is just perfect for a crowd who loves the Classics as well as the Top 40. At one point he had the whole party joining in and even let one of the guests share the microphone! Having him there on his guitar definitely set the mood of the night.

Everyone had a blast and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough!

Jamie & Annie

Well done Michael… A very big thank you for creating the most amazing atmosphere at our House Warming Party!
All our guests were very impressed.
We will definitely contact you again for any of our future events!

Gold Coast

Such a great entertainer… My wife and I had a very enjoyable night with Michael playing in the background at a recent celebration for a friend of ours. He created a great atmosphere and was just loud enough to sing along to but still a perfect level to enjoy a chat amongst friends.
We thoroughly enjoyed your performance Michael and will definitely be calling you for any of our entertainment needs in the future!

Glenn & Helen
Palm Beach

I was recommended to Mike Hickey through a mutual friend when we were planning my 50th Birthday party. And how delighted were we! Mike was an absolute gent! He came to visit the venue so we could discuss the set up, number of guests, lighting etc. and was so obliging. We explained that we just wanted a very casual arrangement of just one singer with an acoustic guitar. On the day of the event he arrived super early to set up everything perfectly.

As the evening started, Mike played lots of wonderful background music, sang lots of good tunes throughout the night and towards the end of the evening we were all having a good old sing song with him. We left Mike to choose all the songs and we were not disappointed. We could not have wished for a more brilliant entertainer! He was fabulous and all our guests raved about him.
Thank you Mike… we will be recommending you to all our family and friends for their special events!


I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your performance at my friend’s Birthday Bash on the Gold Coast. You kept us all entertained with your fantastic voice and a great range of songs.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family and will certainly be calling on you again. Thanks again!


I just wanted to tell you once more how much I loved your performance last night. I enjoyed all of your songs and had a couple stuck in my head for hours after… Fantastic! You have such a great set list and the way you make the songs your own is incredible. Your renditions of Iris and Whataya Want From Me in particular were amazing! I love a person with guitar and voice and talent. It seems simple enough but it doesn’t always need to be complicated. My friend said it was nice to watch a performer that loves what he does rather than just sitting there going through the motions!

We will definitely keep an eye out for your upcoming gigs. Good work Michael!

Alto Reed

I really enjoyed listening to you perform at the party Michael… You have a great sound! I loved your guitar playing and your voice is incredible. You are very easy to listen to. Thank you for entertaining us tonight!


What a GREAT night…! I got the family together for a night out at Sanctuary Markets and was thoroughly entertained with the BEST music and songs. Such a great choice of music. My family’s ages range from 23 to 59 and everyone mentioned how good you were.
You are very talented… thank you Michael!


Thank you Michael for your music and entertainment at Orion. We were there for dinner one evening and your tunes made our night!

Michael, I really can’t thank you enough…! You and the Virtuosity Band not only met my expectations but you totally exceeded them! I have heard so much positive feedback about your performance from all who attended our Annual International Event on the Gold Coast. Thank you for making our major event such a success and thank you for all the assistance and support you provided in the lead up to the event. I can honestly say I have been singing your praises to everyone I speak to!

I will definitely be keeping you in mind for upcoming events and sincerely hope I have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

Marcus Capaldo
Manager, Customer Relations & Communications | Clipsal by Schneider Electric

We had the opportunity of working with Michael and his band, Virtuosity for back to back shows, at the Marriott Hotel on the Gold Coast, to celebrate our 20 year Club Clipsal Birthday.

Michael was a pleasure to deal with from day one. From the stage of the initial enquiry, through to the performance, he was courteous, super professional, highly organised and the band delivered two stand out shows in consecutive nights, making the event a memorable one for all. During the performance the whole band were personable and engaging. Their setlist aligned superbly with our event brief and their presence on stage made the dance floor the place to be.

I would highly recommend working with Michael and Virtuosity for your next event.

Thank you so much Michael for the beautiful music you played last night for our daughter’s Engagement Party.

Special thanks for contributing to a magical night for Jodi and Justin.

David Orr

We are very happy with Michael Hickey’s music services. Performing regularly at our Venue for just over 2 years now, Michael’s Sunday afternoon Acoustic Sessions is a favourite among our regulars and features very easy going music to kick back with on the deck by the waterfront and his Duo sets a lively upbeat atmosphere on a Friday night.

We find Michael a true pro!

Mount Nathan

Thank you Michael!
