Dan was fantastic! He created a great atmosphere at the drinks reception for my birthday party, playing just the kind of music we wanted. Very amiable and keen to make sure we were happy. Can’t recommend him highly enough!

Dan played at our wedding and it was absolutely perfect, I highly recommend him! He played background jazz saxophone in the venue courtyard while our guests were having reception drinks and canapes. Our guests loved it. We chatted to Dan about the kind of music and atmosphere we wanted to create for our rustic wedding and he did the rest and came up with the most perfect set. My husband is very musical so it meant a lot to him that Dan created such an excellent atmosphere
