Eastern European cabaret band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen has finished its Arts Festival Dunedin run but primal howls of appreciation still echo around the city.

Front man Mikelangelo promised to plumb the depths of human emotion for his two Dunedin performances at the Kavanagh Auditorium at the weekend, and he delivered, making the audience unashamedly howl like wolves in a show of appreciation.

Before the encore, Mikelangelo warned the audience they could fall pregnant by listening to his love song A Formidable Marinade.

The slick crooner walked the aisles, sat on the laps of men and women, singing the sultry song directly to them.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the close encounter and those who missed out could hug Mikelangelo in the foyer, an offer accepted by most of the near-full house on Saturday night.

Mikelangelo promised the audience the band would return to Dunedin in seven years.

Let us hope he makes good on his promise to deliver  another guaranteed good time.
