Fran Danis played beautifully for our daughter's wedding cocktail hour. His selections were up to date and provided the perfect backround to the Union League's ambiance. Fran was pleasant and well appointed for the event.

Mr. Danis played piano for 4 hours during our Christmas open house. At our request he played both jazz and Christmas music, though at the end of the party, the guests began making requests, and he graciously complied. I couldn't have been more pleased with his talent and professionalism. We received innumerable compliments about him during the course of the evening and would definately hire again.

Additional Booking Notes

Just electricity.


If the location of your party/event does not have a piano there, I will bring my portable piano with sound system. It is best for potential clients to see and hear the video and audio samples I have placed on this site to truly grasp my abilities.
