Dan Foxton is a 25-year-old singer boasting 9 years of Live music experience in the UK, Europe and The USA, the most recent being a UK arena tour with The Vamps. Since 2014, he has played over 500 private events/weddings/functions and is just at home playing jazz guitar/piano in the corner of a bar, as he is playing an upbeat evening set at a wedding. His impressive live music experience gives him the ability to tailor a set according to the atmosphere of the room, and fit in perfectly with the vibe of the event, whether it be playing guitar or piano. His set-list varies from the 1960s all the way through to modern day, and Dan is happy to work with clients to achieve the perfect playlist of songs for their event. His equipment is fully PAT tested, and he is happy to bring a lighting system too at no extra cost. Finally, Dan can provide a DJ service for when he isn’t playing his sets, making sure your event has the perfect atmosphere the entire time.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem! Just let me know in as much notice as you can and we will work something out.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes. With fading in between tracks. You can also give me a playlist to stick to if you wish.

How much time do you need to set up?

30-40 minutes.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Yes, I do recommend letting me judge the room on the night, however if there are songs you are desperate to hear I can play them no problem.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?


Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes! In some cases I may ask for a £30 fee for rehearsal times if I don't know the song. But most of the time I will already know the song.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Using my loop pedals, I can create a full band sound by myself, this is something most people haven't seen before and makes for a great night! I also pride myself in being absolutely god damn hilarious so we usually have a lot of banter.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Most Arena's in the UK and Ireland (Including O2 Arena, Manchester Arena, Birmingham Genting Arena etc..) Whiskey A Go Go, Los Angeles CA. Roxy Theatre, Los Angeles CA. Rockwood Music Hall, New York.

Dan is a fantastic entertainer. We had Dan for my daughters 18th and he suited all guests with type of music he did. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an evening of fun and great entertainment. If I have any more parties to arrange or organise I will try my best to have Dan as the entertainer.

Dan gave us peace of mind while booking as everything was taken care of and he set up with plenty of time to spare. Dan set the tone of the room off in a delightful way, nothing too overpowering while the friends and family chatted. As the alcohol flowed, Dan was happy to take requests and drew the night in with some great sing-alongs for everyone. A great performance and gave everybody the chance to have a sing and dance. A pleasure to have him there.

"Dan played our christmas party this year and was by far the best decision we made. He was cool, easy to talk to, and had a great sense of humour with us. He arrived early and set up before everyone arrived and played jazzy background music as people settled in, and everyone was commenting on how good he was and where i found him! After the food Dan turned it up a bit and by the end of the night every person from the office was singing and dancing!! can't ask for much more than that, what a star cheers dan see you next year!!"
