In addition to his Elvis repertoire, Michael also performs as himself - a versatile singer who loves to sing the great classics of Englebert Humperdinck, Tom Jones and Sammy Davis, Jr.
His passion for music developed from his early years as a professional drummer playing in his own bands as well as other musical venues. The sounds of Chicago music, Blood, Sweat & Tears and rock n' roll were always his musical favorites. "One of the biggest thrills of my young life was meeting drum legend Buddy Rich, who greatly influenced me as a drummer."
Michael was also inspired by the image of actor, singer, dancer John Travolta who became "one of my heroes." Experiencing the thrill of the disco scene, he soon recognized he had a natural feel of dance which proved to be a terrific asset to his stage performace and audience rapport.
His acting skills which he perfected while studying under the direction of Lee Strausberg's protege, John Sarno, helped him to prepare for roles in daytime TV dramas including "General Hospital" and "Santa Barbara." His television appearances also included CBS' "Las Vegas On Ince" with Victor Petrenko, TNN "Prime Time Country" with Gary Chapman, The Vicki Lawrence Show, the WKRP in Cincinnati, among others. National TV commercials were with Bell Atlantic, Lipton Tea and the Las Vegas Visitor's Authority.

A fantastic entertainer with a well rounded act, Michael actually knows over 100 Elvis songs. Audiences and producers alike agree that not only does he look like Elvis, he sounds like Elvis and some say "better than Elvis." "When I'm doing Elvis, I put my own feelings into the songs, my own love of music - mind, body and soul," states Michael. "On stage, I project as Elvis as much as I can through my eyes."
His act is so versatile he can perform on any budget, working with everything from pre-recorded music tracts to full band arrangements. This approach has been perfect for conventions, fairs, corporate events and private party performances.
Michael's "Vision of Elvis" is a full show that takes the audience through the eras of the king. His incomparable tribute to the King of Rock n' Roll, has become so popular that he has gone out on his own and has become one of the most sought after entertainers to have recreated the look, the sound and excitement that made Elvis a legend.
