ALL ABOUT VOCALS | Constance Tucker
“Freyer is sure to be compared with Michael Bublé, Steve Tyrell. He should stack up quite well alongside these peers. To my ears, I find Freyer a more attractive vocalist.” “Pleasant baritone, and really puts over his material, including a few originals that show him to be an effective songwriter.” "There is a new cat on the block to keep alive the swinging crooner style, and his name is Danny Freyer.”

JAZZ MUSIC - C. J. Bond
Crooner Danny Freyer ((link hidden)) has been described as having a classic, yet contemporary sound. The LA-based Jazz, Sinatra Tribute, and Big Band singer and bandleader's shows always deliver a swinging time with such standards, Freyer’s rich-toned vocal stylings reflect his jazz singer influences — Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Big Joe Williams, and Billie Holiday — while balancing vintage and modern sounds.
His straight ahead approach to vocals jazz vocals emphasizes tone over technique, and lyric and feeling over flash. Depending on your budget, hire Danny's band in a small configuration (bass, piano, drums), add horns to the ensemble for a Rat Pack or jump swing party vibe, or go with the full 1940s style Swing Big Band.
