I saw Gord three times in the last five years,
but YOU were incredible at the Pentwater show.
You ARE Lightfoot!
-- Pentwater, Mich.

Mike put on a concert here in Pentwater, MI, this evening and he was simply outstanding. My wife and I, a number of years ago, saw Gordon Lightfoot in concert at Miller Auditorium on Western Michigan University's campus. Needless to say it was outstanding. After listening to Mike's performance tonight, I can only say that Mike is Gordon Lightfoot. Thank you Mike for a tremendous concert and for bringing back a lot of wonderful memories. 
-- Pentwater, Mich

We especially enjoyed the storytelling and the way you set up the songs. You made it so personable;
it was as if Gordon were here playing for us.

We're really happy with how the concert worked out. Lots of good feedback!

You and your band did an outstanding job at your concert in Calumet last Saturday; we really enjoyed the evening. My wife and I attended several Lightfoot concerts in the 1970s at Massey Hall in downtown Toronto and I also saw him at Lake Superior State College in the late 1960s - you captured Lightfoot and his songs so well!
-- Houghton, Mich.

We saw your show in Calumet last Saturday night and WOW - what a performance you and the band put on! From Lightfoot's stage presence to his concert wardrobe to the heart felt words sung and music played - WOW! What a performance!

My wife and I have seen Lightfoot in concert perhaps a dozen times. I don't know how you did it; whether it was your vocal tones, your guitar or your similar appearance (maybe all of these) but at the Shipwreck Museum performance you definitely created the same mood that we feel when Lightfoot plays. As she put it afterwards, "it's like Gord was here."
— Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.

I have heard nothing but positive comments and many (many!) people mentioned how much your group sounded like Gordon Lightfoot & his band and how much you looked like Gordon! Sincere compliments and much deserved.

You were quite authentic in vocals and your instruments. Having seen Lightfoot many times I can honestly say that we thought it was him onstage.
