    Impressed by both the original songs and the production values!
    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.

    "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!"

    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.

    Linda Spahr Recreation Co-Ordinator, Township of Wellington North

    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.

    Angela Sasaki, Principal, Unionville Montessori School

    "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.
