About Daniel

I am an acoustic guitarist and singer with over 20 years experience playing all occasions, events, pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I enjoy playing all occasions including weddings, birthdays and house/garden parties! I always leave the crowd with smiles on their faces and the customer completely satisfied no matter the event. My repertoire is very extensive as it includes a variety of popular sing-a-long songs ranging from the 50's to the modern day. My experience enables me to read any crowd which allows me to play suitable songs for the perfect atmosphere; I can play lively and exciting songs to create a buzzing party atmosphere or slower songs depending on what the crowd prefers. I also specialise in a lot of 90s indie/singalong party music. I have played many large venues to huge crowds including Castlefield Bowl which 8000 attended, Academy 1 and The Ritz in Manchester, as well as many festivals including Kendal Calling and Beat Herder. I am no stranger to big crowds, however, I also enjoy performing in more smaller intimate surroundings. Last year I played a residency for 7 months in Ibiza and many opportunities came from this. I'm always willing to travel and I have my own Bose PA which can cater for up to over a 500 audience capacity. I'm easy to get along with and I am available at all times including weekdays and weekends - I can play for a maximum of 4 hours if need be but usually 2 x 45 minute sets or 2 x 1 hour sets, it all depends on the customers needs. Finally thankyou for checking out my profile. Please take the time to have a look at my videos and repertoire and I hope to be available for your next event :) Dont hesitate to get in touch via phone, message or email regarding anything you wish to ask.

Daniel played at an small party for my wife's birthday and was simply brilliant from start to finish. Daniel's set was perfect and everyone at the event enjoyed themselves because of it. I can't recommend him enough.

Daniel was brilliant for our event! Brilliant singer and brilliant catalogue of songs. He completely made the night and so many of our party goers commented on how great he was! He was really flexible, fitting in around other aspects of the event, judged the crowd perfectly and really entered in to the spirit of our party. He'll be our go to for our next event for sure!

Daniel Clarke is a consummate performer of the highest calibre. His true strength on stage is in his ability to adapt to whatever kind of audience he is faced with on any given occasion, and his extensive repertoire enables him to shift tempo, genre, vibe, and decade within a matter of seconds to ensure that all tastes and moods are accounted for. It's evident from the way he interacts with his listeners that he enjoys the show as much as they do, which only further adds to his overall appeal
