"Dear Danny
I recall the many past social events where you have performed and your professionalism and talent for entertaining an audience has always been evident. As you know, you have quite a folowing and your presence has always ensured that such events are a success. I wish you the best of luck and hope to catch your act again in the future".

Stephen Hepburn MP

Danny's growing popularity led him to be selected as a regional finalist for "Britain Does Variety 2012" and has auditioned sucessfuly once  again to be a regional finalist for "Britain Does Variety for 2016". His laid back style swayed him to swing with the songs, routines and comedy of Mr. Dean Martin and capture the cool stylistic phrasing of Mr. Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Elvis Presley Michael Buble and others.

So "Direct from the Bar" come and relax with Danny in the lounge, singing & dancing along to the definitive tracks from the generation of swing with a cigarette in one hand and a scotch in the other.

Do not miss this amazing tribute to the legendary entertainers of yesteryear! Danny - dressed in a classy & timeless black tuxedo and bowtie - can either perform his routines for you or you can request your own custom lineup from his long list of songs.   

If you have that special occasion coming up and you want it to be a real swinging celebration, book "Danny Reed Swings"

Always remember "You are never too old for Swing!"
