Most weekends Daniel is available for singing or band-leading at private events. Enjoying occasional invitations to perform in Musical Theatre, Daniel has in the past taken up a lead role as the Italian Tenor Tito Merelli in a Players2 Production of “Lend Me a Tenor” to fantastic critical acclaim. He will be adding more shows and variety to his portfolio in due course.
A true eclectic with a taste for dozens of rhythms and performances in 9 languages, Daniel is an artist of unusual depth and breadth, who enjoys making events as interactive as possible, either by taking requests, or inviting people up to sing with him at the piano.

Due to this extensive experience and maturity Daniel considers himself to be highly reliable, and professional. He is also very experienced when it comes to sound management and audience/client satisfaction.
As live music events have been quiet, he has been busy working on original songs and would be delighted if you would stay tuned for his forthcoming EP release.
