David was a Perfect gentleman

5 stars - David Hayes are Highly Recommended booked David Hayes for their event in East Sussex July 2019

“David was brilliant and so lovely. He arrived an hour early and stayed very late bless him - couldn’t fault him at all. We just had a small garden party with 20 guests - he sang everything we requested and has a fabulous voice - the first set was in the background whilst we ate and then the second set more lively and had us all up dancing and singing. We all had a fabulous evening and would not hesitate to hire again or recommend. Thank you David x”

“You were so helpful in finding us a singer as such short notice so thank you so much – and what a singer! David is absolutely brilliant, he totally made the evening, his voice is fantastic but he also had the skill to read the room, our guests and tailor his performance so everyone loved it. I will never forget everyone dancing at the end to New York New York to David’s voice and our first dance was so special to Nat King Cole L.O.V.E.

"The Spirit of Sinatra" Clive Davis - The Times

"The epitome of cool" Dave Gelly – The Guardian

 The Times, The Guardian and The Observer have compared David’s vocal style to that of Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé and Chet Baker. Although his roots are firmly planted in the tradition of the classic Jazz singer, David delights in finding new ways to explore the Great American Songbook which results in a sound that is fresh, innovative and fun.

 “His light voice and crisp diction are ideally suited to fast tempos and witty lyrics both of which he handles with tremendous aplomb” The Observer

 With his Jazz trio, David has performed in clubs and theatres in New York, London, Amsterdam, Kuala Lumpur, Dublin and Vienna. He weaves a soulful thread of Pop into his classic Jazz repertoire which – combined with his distinctive use of loops, harmony, beat boxing and comedy – makes him unique amongst his contemporaries.

 “Sinatra’s phrasing and a delivery all his own” Jim Santella – All About Jazz

 His debut Jazz album Just in Time was ‘record of the week’ in The Guardian, and his follow-up album with the Jim Mullen Organ Trio – Builders Brew – was described by Times Jazz critic, Clive Davis, as possessing “the spirit of Sinatra”. David’s albums have been favourably reviewed in The Times, The Guardian, Jazzwise, The Jazz Journal, Jazz UK, Crescendo & Jazz Magazine, Musician Magazine, UK and All About Jazz.

 "One of the best in the business" Brian Blain – Musician Magazine

Since training at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, David has performed in a wide variety of settings and is equally at home singing with the RTE Concert Orchestra at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, as he is performing with his trio at Ronnie Scott's. David has sung with Jazz stars Claire Martin, John Wilson, Jim Mullen and Kirk Leightsy in venues as varied as Bristol Old Vic, 59E 59th St Theatre New York, Voorout Theatre Belgium, Soho Theatre London, The Royal Opera House, 606, Pizza Express Soho, the London Jazz Festival, the Kuala Lumpur Jazz Festival, the Ritz, the Waldorf and the Dorchester.

 “A rising star – a cross between Mel Torme and Chet Baker” Crescendo & Jazz Magazine

 David has also appeared with the John Wilson Big Band, the RTE Concert Orchestra, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and the Skelton Skinner All Stars Big Band. He was interviewed on the Russell Davies Show on BBC Radio 2, as well as receiving airplay from Jonathan Ross, Humphrey Lyttleton, Jacqui Dankworth, Clare Martin OBE, David Jacobs, Desmond Carrington, Helen Mayhew, and Campbell Burnap.
