"Mike doesn't know how good he really is! He has one of the top voices in the whole Upstate New York region." J. Holland/ Manager Albany AOH Hall

"In the entertainment world, you don't often stumble upon not only a talented and versatile musician, but also a class act. I truly look forward to every note he sings. No one better!

- Amy Smith / 22 Artist Management

"Mike DeAngelis and Ace Parkurst came to entertain the residents at Eddy Hawthorne Ridge for the first time recently. They were phenomenal! Not only was their musical talent and repertoire absolutely perfect, they also engaged the crowd with humor and encouraged them to sing along. They took requests and of the very few songs that they were not able to do immediately, they promised to learn them for their next visit. I immediately booked them for many more dates and can't wait for them to return. I can't recommend these artists enough!"

Mike and Ace are an amazing combination. They had our senior citizens here are Beechwood enthralled. They played songs that our seniors could sing along to. Some of our residents got a kick out of trying to stump Mike by throwing out song names he didn't know. We thoroughly enjoyed their performance and are looking forward to having them here again.
