Guitarist Daniel Stanislawek plays a wide ranging repertoire including pop, classical, jazz, Latin, American Songbook, and traditional music. Described as “highly artistic” (AllMusic), and “a player of great delicacy” (The Buffalo News), he has performed to critical and audience acclaim throughout the US, abroad, and has been broadcast on radio and television. Originally from suburban Chicago, he was educated at the North Carolina School of the Arts (BM) and Florida State University (MM). He has recorded for Albany Records.
From the word 'go' Daniel was absolute perfection for my mother's retirement party. Within hours of booking Daniel had reached out to me to introduce himself and say hello, which was such a relief after deliberating over artists for the party for days. I knew I had made the right choice right way (plus have you seen the clips for songs he performs on his website? Worth a visit.) Daniel was personable, but not obtrusive, throughout the time leading up to the event, and the day of was prompt, friendly, and self-sufficient-he needed little else than to know where to find a three-prong outlet! Most importantly Daniel is an incredible musician, and also really skilled at fitting his art into an event without, 1) being overpowered, or 2) overpowering. We had a smallish dinner party at a vineyard for 35+ people, and Daniel fit the volume and tempo of his music perfectly to accommodate the mood and tone of the evening. When things got loud and busy (as it did when the Triple Crown got turned on for a few minutes) Daniel's playing was soft and unobtrusive, but still present; and when the conversation lulled, the music seemed to step up to keep the environment lively. Daniel also worked his classical pieces in with artful covers of contemporary rock/blues/pop songs, which was fun. It wasn't at all uncommon for the end of a song to be met with appalause-and surprised laughter because people didn't realize that everyone else had been listening too! If you are looking for an artist, both in music, and subtlety, look no further than Daniel. I cannot thank him enough for helping make our event so special.
I wanted an acoustic guitarist for my treehouse wedding, and Daniel did not disappoint! He has a wide variety of music, and I was happy that he could accommodate all of my requests. The music added such a wonderful touch during the ceremony and afterwards during cocktail hour. I'm so glad I hired Daniel, and I hope to hire him again at another event!
Daniel arrived well prepared and played an array of music. He is such a Class Act!
Daniel played for our wedding ceremony and the beginning of the cocktail hour of our reception. I was so busy on the day that I barely had I chance to wave hello, but the music was beautiful and he was very communicative during the planning process.
Daniel has now played for two of our high school graduation parties. He is really sweet and plays beautifully. He is also really easy to work with. He even offered our 13-yo daughter the opportunity to play on his amplified guitar. Very sweet. Would definitely invite him again.
Daniel did a great job in providing music for our Open House event to the community. He arrived well prior to event time and provided a wide array of music selections. We definitely recommend him for any type of event. Thank you Daniel!!!
Daniel provided a lovely ambiance for our party. We're always very pleased with his performance and professionalism.
Daniel showed up on time and was great, he provided the perfect background music for the event, and the guests were extremely pleased.
From the first conversation, Daniel was so professional and helpful. Suggestions were provided and it made our ceremony perfect. Song selections were plentiful. We had a vocalist for one song and it went so smoothly, even with only a short run through together prior to the ceremony. Thank you!
Arrived on time, heard what we needed and executed wonderfully.
Worked great for our wedding. Thanks
Daniel did a wonderful job. Great musician!
Daniel is obviously, very talented. He came early to set up, and performed for the agreed upon amount of time. We appreciated his professionalism and music.
Daniel provided live music at an second event and we're just as pleased as his first. Our guests comment on how nice the music is and how good a musician Daniel is. We would and will happily book him for future events.
Daniel was incredible! I'm so happy I found his talents. He was exactly what i was looking for and made our wedding perfect. Nothing but compliments from guests and staff.
I thought that live music would give a special touch to my Holday party and it did ! Daniel was great!
He did not show for our event!
Daniel was on time, professional, and provided a great selection of music that was perfect for our event. A very talented musician that we would be happy to book again.
Daniel did a lovely job. He played background music where appropriate and accommodated my special requests. The guests had many good things to say about how elegant the music and ceremony was. He also provided upbeat music during the cocktail hour. I highly recommend letting him make choices. I only requested the brides entrance, recessional and unity song- Daniel did the rest and it was perfect!
Great musician! He worked in unbelievable heat and didn't comcomplain. He was perfect for our event. Would definitely use again!!
My parents and I hired Mr. Stanislawek to play at the large backyard graduation party a friend and I were hosting, and he was fantastic. He was incredibly kind, friendly, and professional in communication beforehand, and once he arrived he had the great idea to set himself up to play up in our roofless treehouse. The effect was perfect. Mr. Stanislawek's music was very audible, and created a lovely mood, without impairing any conversation. We got so many compliments afterwards on his music. He played for four hours straight, and his selections were absolutely lovely. Highly recommend!
Dan was so organized and flexible, and his music was just beautiful. He sat up and performed from our tree house and lots of people commented on his music. We would definitely hire him again!
Daniel was a pleasure to work with. All of our guests enjoyed the music.
Dan was very talented and professional and entertained us non-stop for 6 hours! He is an amazing guitar player and we can't wait to have him back!
