One more thing to add to our previous entry: we're also located in Maryland, on the eastern shore. My wife plays piano at Annie's Paramount Steak House in Grasonville. I'm retired from USAirways, and we have an airplane if you would like a bird's eye view of the area.

We were big fans back in the '70s and bought your album at Disneyworld. We thoroughly enjoyed your performances, and went back to see you numerous times. My wife is a performer and plays in a 5-star restaurant. She still plays some of your music on her synthesizer. We were disappointed one year when we were at the Oshkosh airshow and didn't know that you were performing there.

Michael- Great to see you after so many years! I photographed you for WDW on your first day at Tomorrowland, and several of us from Photo would make a point to spend the last half of lunch hour watching you perform. Fabulous memories, for sure. I recently retired from The Company after nearly 40 years, and am rediscovering many old friends on FB. Cheers!

Saw your performance at Taylor University in Upland IN, think it would have been 1984? I still have the vinyl LP of that performance! I was a student at Ball State University at the time, so on a spring day when I was in the mood, I'd put my big fuzzy stereo speakers in my dorm window and BLAST THE QUAD OUT with the Iceberg Machine! (okay, I'm a little odd...)

I saw you at TomorrowLand back in the '70s and close-up at a concert at Stetson University in the early '80s. Experiencing your performance ("watching" isn't enough, "listening" isn't enough--it was a whole-body thing) was an immersion in total joy.
We visit Disney World several times a year (annual pass holders!) and every once in awhile I stop into the building where you performed to remember what it was like when you were there. I understand why you stopped performing, and I absolutely honor your decision--but the Magic Kingdom is a poorer place in your absence.
Thank you for those years, Michael.

I never got to see you perform live, one of the huge regrets in my life. My first girlfriend introduced me to your music in the mid 80's and I have been a fan from then on. I have introduced my wife to your youtube vids and she too is a fan. I am so glad to see that you are doing well, and still playing and giving interviews.

I first saw you perform in WDW in the late 70s and you inspired me to become a keyboard player. I worked at a music store in Michigan and always told the owner how much I enjoyed your music. A few years later (around 1983) at the NAMM show in Chicago I finally met you for the first time. I would not be where I am today if not for seeing you perform.

Hi I used to work as a cook at the Holiday Inn in Aspen 1975+. I have so many fond memories of you playing and even riding around Aspen in your van. I just ran across you name in a post on the Facebook page of "Friends of Aspen 60s-70s" and the memories came flooding back, I do not think I have ever seen as great a performer with as big a repatoire and such a great raport with the adience. Thanks for the the memories and I am glad I can hear you again! Love Mark

I worked at Disneyland when you worked at Wurlitzer on main st late 50,s early 60's. I was just a teen and really looked up to you . You used to play duets with Dee Fisher.you had a silver Alpha Romeo roadster. I have such fond memories of you would enjoy an email from you .

Hi Michael. My Father and I were huge fans of your music and enjoyed your performances at Tomorrowland Terrace. Finding this site and seeing all of your YouTube videos really brought back a lot of special memories for me. My Father was a music teacher and part time organist in his spare time. He passed away this past year from Alzheimer's, but I know he would have been thrilled to see that you are doing well and still playing albeit on a smaller stage now. Thank you for all that you do. Your music and larger than life personality always make me smile and remember the great times that my dad and I had listening to your performances. God Bless You Michael!

The first time that my 7 year old heard you play he was so entranced that he wouldn't leave until we sat through 3 shows. And we went back for 2 more the next day. Thank you for all the pleasure you have given us over the years.

Great to see you are alive and doing well. It has been a long time since the days of building the touring machine with Tom, Greg and Co.

I remember your show in WDW in the late 70's. I was a young lad that loved synthesizers and was into the works of Larry Fast and ELP. Your show blew my mind, I've never seen anyone do what you did with those synths live before. Thanks to your influence I still work with synths and my music has been heard on The Weather Channel Local on the 8's. Many thanks to a man way ahead of his time.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane! I remember seeing one of the first shows at WDW (Florida), when it was still on the bill as "Michael Iseberg" and "The Iseberg Machine." I remember coming back some time later and seeing the spelling had been changed. I got a chuckle out of it, knowing it had to have been changed for the commercial/publicity value. To this day, when anyone mentions a synthesizer, my first thought is "PIGS IN THE WIND!" If they can't do that, I'm not interested. :)

I was a big fan of yours in the late 70's and in 1981 as the tech for the theater at the Junior College in Ocala, I made arrangements to have you perform at the college. I believe it was your first trip out with the new pyramid because it took Dwayne, Tom and you several attempts of packing back on before the right combination was arrived at.
Well in 1982 I was hired on at Disney as part of the crew for the First Version of the Lagoon show. I am now 31 years with the company as a stage tech and still love every day of it. In part thanks to you and your inspiration.

I was a big fan of yours in the mid 70's and arranged for you to perform at the college I worked at in I believe 1981 or so . It was at Central Florida Community College in Ocala . When you got there you were in a bus and it was the first show with your new Pyramid. You did a great show and when it was all over we were reloading the bus and you, Tom, and Dwayne couldn't remember how toi get it repacked so we spent quite a while getting it loaded.
I went on to get a tech job at Disney in 82 and now 31years later I'm still there.
love all the new You Tube stuff and it's great to hear you again.

It's nice to see Micheal Iceberg is still performing. I saw Micheal and his Iceberg Machine in Edmonton, Alberta back in 1984 when I was 12.
My life really sucked at the time (dysfunctional family and what not), but I was able to sneak into the exhibition grounds to see Micheal and he was able to make me happy. And I guess that's why he's always stuck in the back of my mind all these years later.

I seen you perform at Epcot in WDW back around 1977 or so. I was simply amazed at the sounds you played. The music was mesmerizing and I could have spent the entire day listening to your show. Your humor was great with it also. Everytime I hear the Main Street Electrial parade song, I think back to that time. Thank you for sharing your music with the World. I also remembered you on JOHNNY CARSON show and johnny was running over and he told the engineers to stay on the air for you. It was worth it.

I was listening to Mannheim Steamroller Christmas CD when for some reason the thought occurred to me "This sounds so much Like Michael Iceberg from Disneyworld" A quick web search and here I am. Great memories of the show and the pure fun Michael was obviously having with his music, pigs and all... Thank you!

Hi Michael, I spent 30 years in the Boys & Girls Club field. Back in 1978 & 1979 I took a group of our members to DisneyWorld. You were one of the highlights of our trip. I am ordering 3 of your cds especially "Iceberg Does It Live". I bought the album back in '78 and I'm very pleased it is available in cd form. My best to you and your family.
