One of Northern California's most celebrated supper club duos. Mike Spellman and Ella Wolfe revive the ambiance of the great San Francisco nightclubs of the 50's and 60's.
“Mike and Ella captivate audiences with enchanting stories, engaging dialogue, laughter and fabulous music!”
Singing' and Swingin'
Swing and sway to cool ballads and hot rhythms! From lively, toe-tapping tunes to steamy ballads, this collection of bluesy, jazzy songs will stir the heart and energize the spirit. Accompanied by the Benny Watson Trio, Mike Spellman and Ella Wolfe put a fresh interpretation to some old classics along with some great lesser known tunes.
Mike & Ella's supper club shows are styled after the intimate nightclubs of the 50's and 60's, with music accompaniment by some of the San Francisco Bay Area's finest musicians. The shows can accommodate a variety of venues and budgets based on the musical accompaniment of any combination of piano, bass and drums.

SENIOR AUDIENCES ROCK! When Mike and Ella aren't traveling and performing with their band, you'll often find them entertaining at senior residences and assisted living facilities. Using music backup tracks for accompaniment, they've created several hour-long shows of music and entertainment that are targeted for senior audiences. However, that doesn't mean they're playing nothing but Sweet Adeline-style songs. One of the comments Mike and Ella often hear from their senior fans is how much they enjoy the lively music! "So many performers think we want to hear nothing but slow, put-you-to-sleep music," one resident proclaimed, "but we love to tap our feet to music that makes us feel happy." And for Mike and Ella, seeing smiles on the faces of their audience—of any age—is the best part of performing.
