About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Jonathan Danis is a twenty-two year old musician from the small town of West Newbury, Massachusetts. He currently studies music at the University of Virginia, in Charlottesville, Virginia. Jonathan began music at two years of age, and since has developed into a multi-instrumentalist and renown pianist. Jonathan is an improvisatory musician, and combines influences from several genres, including jazz, blues, rock, and folk into his playing style. He draws from the unique artistry of pianists like Bill Evans, Elton John, and George Winston to generate a product that captivates an audience with feelings of joy and contemplation. His piano creates a soothing and exciting atmosphere, perfect as background music in a cocktail lounge. During his adolescent years, Jonathan was taught in a classical piano setting, but by the fifth grade he ceased formal training and became self taught throughout the key years of his musical development. At the age of fourteen, Jonathan became the house pianist at Brown Sugar by the Sea, a restaurant in Newburyport, MA, where he performed several nights a week. Throughout high school he managed his own solo piano business, performing regularly at local cafes, private events, and the Harvard Club of Boston. In the sixth grade, Jonathan was invited to join his older brother's band, Voquel Kemistry. The group needed a bass player. Honored by the invitation to join musicians four years older than him, Jonathan quickly learned the bass and played in a live concert three days later. For the past ten years, Jonathan has become a central figure in this group that has now produced two albums of original music. Jonathan composes piano, guitar, and bass parts for the band and is one of the main audio engineers for the group, using ProTools to record and mix the tracks. At the University of Virginia, Jonathan has been a member of several student rock groups that regularly perform at venues all across the state of Virginia, including parties, bars and the Jefferson Theater in downtown Charlottesville. Throughout the four years of his undergraduate studies he has sat as the pianist in university jazz combo groups, fine tuning his jazz chops and expanding his repertoire. Jonathan hopes to continue his musical studies at a graduate school level and will continue to regularly perform as a solo artist and with various groups for as long as his fingers will allow.

CelebrationReviewed on August 20, 2021From Newbury, MA

Very professional, dressed well, did a great job accompanying my brother and playing music as guests arrived. We asked him to learn 2 new songs which he did. I would very much recommend him again and use him myself if an opportunity comes us.
