"Mickey was fantastic. Professional, timely, courteous, flexible, and of course very talented. A great night was had by all. Would highly recommend Mickey and poptop for future events.

Mickey was excellent from start to finish. I barely had 5 minutes to speak to him as was busy with my event but he sorted himself out and sang wonderfully throughout our fundraiser. Cannot wait to use him again at any event and would thoroughly recommend his beautiful vocals. So many great comments too from our guests. Thank you Mickey.

Very good singer and good playlist. Guests all complimented how good he was. Would definitely recommend booking him to anyone who likes Rat Pack style music. Very reasonably priced for two 45 minute sets.
