Michael Ami

is a jazz pianist/singer with a difference. A classical pianist and composer since age four, he performed his own works, along with those of the great composers, at University of Miami recitals when he was just eight years old. His improvisation and ear skills showed themselves early, causing his piano teacher great consternation as Michael improvised riffs on Beethoven and Kabalevsky sonatas instead of playing the pieces as written.

After earning a Boston Conservatory of Music degree in composition, with a concentration in orchestral and choir conducting, Michael’s extensive repertoire of around 1000 pop songs landed him as a piano bar entertainer on cruise ships. Since leaving the seafaring life, he has concentrated on jazz, incorporating his classical and pop heritage into his unique interpretation of jazz classics. This wild mix of styles is behind Sweet Street’s trademark “mad mash-ups,” in which the duo combines two, three and even four songs into one unforgettable experience.

When not at the piano, Michael enjoys technological pursuits, and is a well-published author of books and magazine articles in the electronics field, as well as an inventor and an avid amateur radio operator.
