Our music pulls from a lot of different places. I love music from all over the world, from all different eras. It all finds its way into our show.
As Duke Ellington said:
"There are only two kinds of music. Good music and the other kind."

About Michael Sheridan
“There’s so much cool music in the world,” says Sheridan. “My Dad loved Motown, my Mom loved the Beatles and everybody loved Bing, Frank and Big Band Jazz. On my own I got into gypsy swing, bebop and classical music. Then out in California all I did was surf and learn all this great South American guitar music. When I came back to NYC it all came together. I’ve been blessed to have been around some of the best players in the world and I watched every move they made.”
Michael Sheridan is a New York metro area guitarist trained in classical and jazz guitar. He has been a regular performer from NYC to California for the past 10 years. He's performed with some of the best guitarists in the world including Roland Dyens, Stephane Wrembel, Sebastian Felix, João Luizand Kamlo Barre. He's appeared on "Watch What Happens Live!" as well as "Million Dollar Listing" for the Bravo! Network.
He released Prelude, his first solo CD in 2013. This is Classical Guitar wrote
“Sheridan is a Great Player”
He formed his first group in 2014
Largely self-taught from the time he was 6, Sheridan didn't study guitar formally until his late 20's when he attended Westfield University to study under Phil de Fremery (who was trained by Segovia and Oscar Ghiglia).
"When I auditioned for Phil I could barely read a note. He took me because I had learned the Villa Lobos Choros No, 1 by ear."
Sheridan then studied with Fred Hand and received his Masters of Music in Classical Guitar Performance from the Mannes School of Music in New York City. He teaches guitar at Georgian Court University and Bloomfield College.
