I play guitar (and piano) and a variety of amazing covers of Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Beatles, Johnny Cash, Jason Mraz, Ed Sheeran, Avicci (Wake Me Up), CCR, Neil Young and the list goes on and on.
Weddings, Concerts, and even Worship Leading! I have been a full time musician entertaining at Nursing homes & Assisted living for over a decade.
With my band Reflect I play at Cup O Joy once a year and sometimes at the Christian music festival Lifest and other festivals as well. I love playing for weddings!
Daniel was great, and was really perfect for the ambiance of our event! His playing was spot-on, he brought the specific songs we were looking for, and, even though he was not feeling the greatest, made everything work, and came with solutions to the issue. I would recommend him for any such event - he helped my wife, family and I enjoy our wedding day :) Thanks, Daniel!!
Price Range: $100 and up
Gig Length: 60 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
I love people and do all I can to serve them well!
If I'm playing a wedding, I am extremely professional and do what the Bride tells me to do... because I value my life.
If I am playing worship in church, then so help me God, I am going to lead people into the very throne room of God... no really, so help me God!
If I am performing for the lovely fine folks who inhabit nursing homes, my goal is to make them laugh or at the very least to crack a smile... or maybe just stop crying? My goal is to play the songs they know and love making them feel a warm and fuzzy nostalgic glow of pure Sunshine. No, I will NOT take their sunshine away! That's a promise.
I was born at a very young age and when asked yesterday where I was from I answered as honestly as I could, "from my mum." When complimented at how awesome I play the guitar and sing I quoted Wesley from Princess Bride, "Worked hard to become so!"
I have been leading worship in churches around Northeast Wisconsin since 2001. I went into Nursing Home ministry in November 2006 and haven't looked back since. Along the way my wife and I have recorded an unspecified* number of albums and have produced an unspecified* number of children. (*Unspecified because who knows if another will pop out at any minute and lets face it... my biggest priority if that happens is not to come back here and update this bio for the sake of being accurate).
I've performed a number of weddings, farmers markets, churches, Cup O Joy concerts, Lifest appearances (I know what your thinking... I am not referencing the streaker who ran across the stage during the Switchfoot concert last year... that wasn't me... well, at least they can't prove it), and random Walmart parking lot concerts... ok just kidding about the last one.
I have a unique mole under my left arm that my one year old finds fascinating and picks at from time to time... ok, that was too much information. Better quit while I was ahead.
Additional Booking Notes
I need one outlet plug and 5 square feet to stand in for my set up... ok, they could be 5 round feet if thats all you have to spare... and I will even settle for 5 hobbit feet but that's pushing it.

Influences & Inspiration
It's most important to mention that my biggest musical influence is your favorite band. What a coincidence right!? Who knew we had so much in common? Now I suspect you are far more likely to listen to my music (and/or hire me) knowing that I was directly influenced by something you already love!
Other influences include: Johnny Cash (especially the "American recordings" when he teamed up with producer Rick Rubin to release his finest work to date).
The Civil Wars (the band, not the actual civil war... the band does not at all resemble civil war era music... that I know of. No, of course I didn't research all of civil war era music to verify this.)
Sufjan Stevens (the acoustic stuff)
Iron and Wine (Try to see how many songs I play and have written that rip off his picking patterns and/or chord progressions)
