About Dan

Hi! I'm Dan Sheppard. I'm a jazz double bassist with 25 years experience. I'm also a service provider - I supply jazz groups for events.
Double Bassist
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I've been playing jazz professionally since 1994. I play for a lot of private events, mainly weddings and corporate jollies. I also play at high-end restaurants, such as The Ivy, 34, Scotts, Le Caprice and more. I also play at Ronnie Scott's regularly, and various jazz festivals. A few years ago I launched my own bespoke jazz agency, through which I've been supplying musicians for events at Liberty London, William & Son, Accouter, Savill's, The Fine Art Group, Bang & Olufsen, Jo Malone and many more. I'm reliable, professional and courteous, and I expect the bands I supply to be the same. I keep a small roster of musicians I know I can trust - I only supply bands I have played with myself so I can vouch for the standards they adhere to. I wouldn't want to supply an unknown quantity to a client because I like to guarantee they're in good hands.

These lovely boys played at my birthday party. They even let me sing a tune! They were truly delightful, and I'll use them again :)

Fantastic! Set the tone just right - great volume for mingling whilst creating a happy vibe. It helped that they were clearly enjoying playing.
