When Michael performs, each and every performance is truly magical. The entire spirit in the room just elevates, and every resident becomes captivated and engaged. Michael involves the whole room, making it a fun, energetic, and beautiful experience. Its not just a performance, it really is an experience. He gets everyone in the room singing and smiling.
When I was thinking of what to say about his other performers, and I've had several of them, I wrote this to Michael to include here: "You can write your own quote and put my name on it. I love you and everyone you bring to my residents, so I support 100% whatever you say about them."
From Michael: I work to bring the best, most professional entertainment to you and your residents, and I appreciate your vote of confidence that I will fulfill that intention.
Michael Goodwin is a wonderful, crisp tenor and sprinkles his gorgeous singing into his presentations. He also engages the audience to sing along with him and they certainly do.
Michael knows musical theater and he makes learning fun by sharing stories. He entertains while he educates and audiences leave smiling.
The additional benefit to activity professionals or senior center or event planning staff is Michael is personable off the stage as well. He is easy to work with and has a wonderful sense of humor. My residents love him so much he is the only entertainment I book on a monthly basis.
Michael Goodwin puts so much into his programs--your audience will be delighted!
Michael Goodwin performed at Waltham Crossings and everyone is STILL raving about how fabulous he was! He was punctual upon arrival, brought his own equipment, easily adapted to the space and the set-up process was efficient. He immediately connected with the audience on a personal level through conversation, humor and by sharing cultural/musical knowledge. This helped create an organic sense of community within the performance space. He played well-curated songs that appealed to the crowd. It was appreciated that he can tolerate wearing a mask while performing to potentially protect any vulnerable folks. This isn’t always easy but the audience surely benefitted more than one can imagine. We had family members in attendance and associates even singing out in the hallway! Residents were positively glowing after the show! This was a very meaningful experience to have our community come together and bond through music. Thank you for helping make memories that our residents, family members and associates will cherish. The Waltham Crossings community looks forward to experiencing your talents again!
I always enjoy working with Pique Entertainment! Michael is very thoughtful and considers what type of musical program will be most beneficial and enjoyable for the residents in our Community.
He is aware of the unique needs of individuals living with dementia and will tailor the program so they will have the best experience.
Pique Entertainment was a lifesaver during the most difficult times of the early outbreaks of Covid. The live stream productions provided endless hours of entertainment and joy for individuals and small groups when residents were unable to have live entertainment and visitors in the Community. This connection to music and his friendly familiar face helped everyone cope better during these challenging times.
Michael is always thinking ahead in planning potential engagements, which is something I may not have the chance to do when my schedule becomes busy. I appreciate his reaching out, making the connection, and the friendly upbeat conversations we have.
I would highly recommend him and his company to other Senior Communities and any other venues looking for a top quality musical performance or musical theatre educational experience.
" Michael is a fun and entertaining performer, and our seniors love his concerts. He has a beautiful voice, is very charismatic, and always sings popular songs they like. He’s reliable and easy to work with. I’d highly recommend him! "

"Pique Entertainment is truly one of a kind. I have been working with Michael over 5 years now, and he is always one of the first people I reach out to when booking entertainment. I always say to people, "Some entertainers are great at their craft, but terrible to work with behind the scenes." That is 100% NOT the case with Michael; he is a huge pleasure to work with, and whether he is performing or one of his entertainers, they are always professional and blow the roof off!"
