DG Solaris performed for our rocket launch event with songs that we chose and that he mastered like a true pro, or that he suggested and that we loved. Great show for an audience that was worldwide. Thank you!

Danny is a brilliant musician who performed for my wife's birthday. He entertained our family with a fantastic set of covers that brought a smile to all our faces. He also performs many of his own songs, which are excellent judging by what I've seen. Danny comes highly recommended!

If you are looking for a unique, personalised gift for a special occasion or just wanting to spend some virtual time with friends/family during lockdown....look NO further. We have enjoyed four concerts with Danny since January. He is a delight and although he has an extensive repertoire, he will also accommodate requests. In addition, Danny writes and composes his own songs, our personal favourite is Spirit Glow. Thank you Danny.

Danny was fantastic - we booked him for a zoom 'party' for my Mum's 75th Birthday -he played a great set of classics from the 60s and 70s - very easy to listen to and a really good performer - was also nice to chat to him in between the songs as well. And we were treated to one of his own songs, (Blink of an Eye) as an added extra! Would highly recommend!

It was the third time we have booked Danny. This time with a group of friends who chose all the songs. Everyone enjoyed Danny's performance, he is a warm and friendly guy and seems to enjoy himself as much as we do. He has sung us a couple of his own songs which are certainly worth listening to, nice and chilled. Thanks Danny

Really enjoyed Danny's performance. Chose our own playlist from Danny's extensive list of songs. He interacted with the whole family and made it very personal and all the more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend and will be booking again with our friends for another Zoom night. A great experience and perfect if you are looking for something different to enjoy during this lockdown. Thank you Danny!
