We love to have live music at our events and Donnie was our best hire ever! He is an incredibly talented musician. He played music everyone loved and even accommodated the kids with some karaoke. He is the only person we would want to use again in the future and so many of our guests have asked for his contact information. Thank you Donnie for making our party amazing!
Hi there, I'm Donny Van Slee and I want to make sure your event is as entertaining AS POSSIBLE!!! I have received my Doctorate Degree in Music at the world renoun institute, YouTube University School of Music. That's right, I can't read sheet music to save my life, BUT I'll tell you what ma'am/sir.... People love that authentic sound I bring to the table. If you have ever listened to Jack Johnson, Jason Marz, or John Mayor and liked their music, you are in for a real treat. I sound like that for the most part.
I was the entertainment for the wedding of the Southeast Regional Manager of Rock Star Energy Drinks. He reported, "Donny was professional and accomodating through the entire process. From song selection to keeping the flow at our reception. We would highly recommend Donny for any special event you are planning." - James Fournier
I put on regular shows (private parties) for the President of E-One, a large corporation that manufactures and sells fire trucks all over the nation. I've also performed multiple times at The Golden Ocala Country Club, a very high-class and exclusive equestrian club where members pay $10,000 annually to be apart of.
My core strength thing is my voice. For what it's worth, every show I put on, at least one person tells me I should go on American Idol... just random people in the crowd. Like I said, I never took Voice 101 at Juliard, so I don't have the formal papers that confirm, "Yes, this guy jumped trough all the hoops." You get to make that decision yourself! I've been playing acoustic guitar for about 13 years so my voice and guitar blend nicely together. Fun fact: I don't use a pick! I finger pick. I feel it puts more feeling into the guitar and keeps the guitar from being obnoxiously loud.
Good news, I use a BOSE system to power my shows, so the sound quality at your event will be A-W-E-S-O-M-E. I will work TIRELESSLY with you, day and night, to make sure everything goes as smooth AS POSSIBLE. Seriously, I will. I'm a super friendly guy who just wants the best for his clients. Also, I'm a Christian and I've lead worship at a church so I know a bunch of praise music, if you or your attendees are into that. I'm leaving you with my usual playlist below. As you will see, I cover so many genres of music; therefore, everyone at your event will have familiarity with the music being performed. Thanks for reading my thing here. I Hope everything works out for you and you find the act you're looking for.
My set list consists of:
Ben E King
Death Cab for Cutie
Mumford & Sons
Plain White Tees
Steve Miller Band
Zac Brown Band
