You can now also book Dan John as part of a piano/voice duet with Jayne on vocals.
A musical duo of piano and voice - performing an acoustic set of carefully crafted covers of blues, smooth jazz, easy listening and classic songs.
Jayne’s soft, gentle vocals are ably matched by Dan Phelps' diverse but sensitive piano style. Their covers range from classics such as ‘Fly Me To The Moon’, ‘Moondance’ and ‘Can’t Help Lovin Dat Man’, to more contemporary songs like 'Yellow’ by Coldplay and ‘Chasing Cars’ by Snow Patrol. Jayne and Dan put their own spin on each piece in an effort to make their lyrics accessible and to keep the audience guessing; will it be a blues version of ‘Aint No Sunshine’ or a stripped back arrangement of a Bon Jovi song? If you’re looking for light entertainment for a function, event, restaurant or hotel, Jayne and Dan could be the duo you’re looking for.
Please see bottom of the repertoire for the duo set list.
