Aside from his own bands and arrangements, Michael is often asked to be a guest soloist with various other professional bands. This is just one more way Michael has performed at large and small events at among other things company events and local community parties.
Michael has also created many themed shows: Frank Sinatra, James Bond, Carøe’s favorites, audience favorites, Danish evergreens in English and pure party music. No matter what kind of party you are throwing, Michael can bring the music that will put the party over the top.
Over the years, Michael has performed with a potpourri of talented artists including: Sanne Salomonsen, Søs Fenger, Mark Linn, Lisa Nilsson and Dario Campeotto. If you are dreaming of “star quality” for your next party, your dreams could come true!
For the last few years, Michael Carøe has played with a large number of Danish jazz musicians in a variety of constellations. Each of these performances has been tailor made to the occasion and always with musicians who both bring a talented solo repertoire to the table and who also know how to party. The play list is a blend of well-known standards spiced up with interpretations from other genres. The selection can be fine tuned to fit either a concert or luxury lounge. And it’s even possible to collaborate with a special DJ.
After several trips to New Orleans, Michael declared his love for brass band music a few years ago. Since that discovery, Michael has been collaborating with the Danish brass band A-team: The Tuesday Night Brass Band. This is a classic New Orleans vibe that keeps the legendary tradition of Louis Armstrong. Watching Michael and the band march across the floor in full regalia with horns blazing would bring the jazz gods to their knees!
On the other end of the entertainment spectrum, you will find Michael Carøe and The Big Band. If you dabble in Frank Sinatra’s music then you know what a big band can do. With Michael at the wheel, The Big Band takes the party on a whirlwind trip direct to The Sands in Las Vegas where you’ll meet Sammy, Dean and of course the “chairman of the board” himself – Frank Sinatra. Nothing is left out – from the back up babes in stilettos to the cool dudes in tuxedos – everything leading towards the ultimate experience in musical elegance. If “That Old Black Magic” was sold by the bottle, your party would want to order it by the case! Michael and the Big Band are the perfect combination whether you are booking for a party or for a concert. Aside from his own big band, Michael can be seen every year on the Tivoli Amusement Park main stage with the house big band. Michael also toured Denmark in 2012 with the Danish National TV Big Band.
This is Michael Carøe’s personal “house band”. The Gold Team is a small group that has played together for years. Their repertoire includes a long list of events, concerts, TV programs and last but certainly not least… parties, parties, parties. The Gold Team and Michael can pack a dance floor at the drop of a hat and instantly bring the party up several notches. Whether you’re looking for “oldies but goodies”, dance till you drop, Las Vegas show time, rock & roll or party pop, The Gold Team makes sure the party doesn’t miss a beat. The Gold Team can play just about anything and requests from the audience are encouraged. In fact, one of the Bands specialties is a unique concept called “The Pop-Up Challenge” where guests fill out request sheets during dinner that are then pulled out of a hat later in the evening. Michael and the band meet the challenge head on (and by the seat of their pants!!!). It’s a magical way to bring any party to the next level.
