"an energetic performer...pop with inventive and fun lyrics that involve listeners...Daycares and kindergarten classrooms will find it a good pick-me-upper."
Impressed by both the original songs and the production
Really enjoyed the albums and was quite impressed by both the original songs and the production values. With that in mind, I’ll start spinning a few of the tracks, specifically “Alphabet Soup”, “Roller Coaster” and “Monkey Time” beginning this week.
"Thanks Dan for your lively and enthusiastic performances!"
"Your performance at McGregor Public School was awesome - we have
only had positive feedback about the show.
I have used the CD in my music classes and
the kids all join in, learning the songs
very quickly. We have even used the BACK TO BACK song for
our Quality Daily Physical Activity (QDPA).
Thank you for a great show!"
"Thanks for the fabulous concert at Stonehaven on Thursday! The
students and teachers couldn't say enough good things about you. Someone
said "He was fun and exciting but not over the top like some muscians
can be" I enjoyed watching how well you related to the kids. I
was so impressed at how you got all of those grade three boys up on
their feet having fun! You are great at what you do."
"The children are still talking about the performance. We haven’t
taken down the posters as yet because they
are a great topic of discussion - “that’s Dan the Man- he was here,
we saw him you know!!!!” It was a great performance. We so appreciated
your enthusiasm. It was infectious!"
"The kids had an absolute blast and loved your music. Many teachers,
including myself, have been playing the songs for our kids in class
and they dance and sing along. I think part of the appeal is that they
learn the songs so quickly and can do the actions along with you. The
performance was a big hit with the kids and the staff!"
"Thanks so much for doing such a great job again this year. They
absolutely LOVE you and I love knowing that when I book you, things
will go super smoothly. You are always reliable, on-time, professional
and a treat for all the kids and families!"
"We recently saw your show in Sherwood Park Alberta. Jenna, our
youngest, sleeps with your CD case propped up beside her pillow so she
can see it before she falls asleep...TRUE STORY!!!"
"We were thrilled to have you at our festival. You did a fabulous
job! Your show was great, entertaining and very energetic - a hit!"
"Thanks Dan, the staff and students loved
you as usual. We will book again."
"Dan, the staff at our school was amazed at how interactive your
show was and how excited the students were during the performance. You
truly give 100% and the kids were entirely engaged. Thank you for a
“We would like to thank you for an energetic
performance of a World of Words. Our school is focusing on literacy.
The performance was exactly what we were looking for. The children
Having worked with Dan Devion for many years
on family corporate events, he consistently provides an excellent,
content-rich, entertaining and educational program for kids as well
as their parents. Not only that, but out of the many musical shows
out there, his is one that really engages and captivates children
of all ages. We're also impressed by the sheer volume of children
he actually has on stage participating at any given time during the
show - something not seen to this extent by other family musical shows.
Having said this, we would recommend Dan Devion a.k.a. "Dan The
Music Man" without hesitation for any event planner looking for
a slick, well-crafted and highly-entertaining family musical show.
Hey Dan, Thanks again for coming. It was good to see that you had droves of children front and centre participating in your entertainment. I heard nothing but great feedback from your performance. My supervisor did mention that she would like more shows during your stay at the event.
Just a quick note to thank you for providing
wonderful family entertainment this past weekend! Piratefest welcomed
between 5,000 to 6,000 visitors and the event was a great success.
Many thanks and we hope to work with you again.
his letter is to congratulate Dan the Music
Man for putting on a wonderful concert for the Township of Wellington
North. The event was held in March to help celebrate the completed
renovations at our Arthur and Area Community Centre. This one-man
show captured the hearts of both young and young-at-heart. His toe
tapping music had everyone involved. The broad smiles on everyone’s
face showed how much people enjoyed themselves. Bubbles surprisingly
appeared from the stage and this created a magical environment. I
would certainly recommend this entertainer for any event.
Many thanks for an excellent performance
at our event on Thursday. The way you touch all of the little ones
in the crowd is so amazing to see all at of your shows. You are a
"The show was a complete success every time. The turn-outs and comments were phenomenal! Dan the Music Man is a great asset to our Social Itinerary! See you next year."
"Thank you for another great performance. The children always enjoy your music - the interactive numbers are so much fun for them. We truly appreciate your experience and your skill in managing large numbers of little children. You are able to allow them the freedom to have fun but at the same time keep them under control so those around them can have fun too. You explain the games and dances in a way that they get it and you have your tried and true methods to bring down the noise level! And of course, you are a very talented singer!! It's a pleasure working with you."
Some of the most uplifting highly energetic children's
music I have heard!
You will start off tapping your toe, snapping your fingers then, clapping your hands and finally before you know it you will be dancing the day away. I speak from experience having had this happen to me at one Dan's performances during Week of the Child.
Make a Bridge has some of the most uplifting highly energetic children's music I have heard. The songs have creative fun lyrics that involve everyone who listens. I know children that bath with Dan's CD playing in the bathroom, children that play it while they're going to sleep. I have a friend who listens to Make a Bridge in the car whether her children are with her or not!
Make a Bridge is the kind of music that energizes you on rainy days or during those grey days of winter. Make a Bridge is a CD that should be added to music collections in child care centres, schools and homes.
The best loved CD in the daycare
We play this CD every day because the children ask for it and love it so much. The best CD ever for kids!
"I only heard good remarks from our guest regarding your show.
Thank you for a great summer!"
"Thank you again for such an amazing performance...everyone loved
you!!!!! We will call upon your services for next year. Wishing much
laughter and joy...you bring so much to others."
"Hey Dan, We (and the kids) would love to have you back in our
line-up next season."
"You were the hit of the festival! We hope you will consider coming
back next year for our 15th anniversay. It was the most successful festival
in the history of the Niagara Food Festival."
"You really have developed a loyal following!"
"Thank you so much for joining us. The crowd really enjoyed you.
You were very interactive with the kids. It is always nice when the
kids can be involved. I will let you know next time I am looking for

to mind! Thank you for your commitment to the kids and your ultimate
professionalism - the show must go on!"

tell him he will most definitely be seeing us again in the future."
"I am pleased to recommend Dan the Music Man as a thoroughly fun family entertainer."

character brings children and adults alike
to their feet and has them moving till the very last note. Dan The Music

entertainment industry! I received some very positive feedback from
children and staff members after the show. I hope that you consider
returning in the future. Thanks again for a great show!"

I'm sure that you have heard it before, but you have a really broad
appeal from the very young to adults."

was positive regarding your show. Glad you made it to the Rodeo, as
you were a great addition."

a family vacation. We saw Dan the Music Man perform. I was simply amazed.
I don't know who loved him more, the kids or parents! The songs were
original and wonderful to listen too. He had all of us up on our feet
dancing along to his songs. All children should see Dan or have one
of his CDs"

bring a winning attitude, a pleasant smile
and a great personality. I think that you
