Daniel Alkato is an acoustic style variety artist. Backing up his own Vocals on the piano, each event is an opportunity to surprise and to connect with your guests. He is approachable, professional, and light hearted with a tendency to tease listeners to find a sweet spot for the atmosphere.
Whether you have a wedding, corporate, social, charity, or private event, Daniel's voice will make an impression across genres and ages. If you choose, feel free to ask for songs that have "Mature" content, or ask for foreign language and classical songs to mix into the set. If you can't find examples of songs you're interested in, feel free to request a song on his website or shoot him an email with a special request. Daniel can sing up to 4 hours without repeating a song, unless of course you'd like him to!
Enough of the third person! I'd love to meet you and hear what you're imaging for your event. As a professional Business Analysis Consultant (riding the desk by day), music is a time for me to break loose. Luckily, I'm also able to leverage these skills as a musician. I have a passion for providing excellence in stellar live singing, and it is reflected through to the quality gear I use for events. I'm new Brand new to Gigmasters and LA as of March 2016, so please read a few of the many testimonials from back in Minnesota that are available on my website. Here are just a few:
"Daniel sang at our wedding and did an amazing job. All night long I had guests complementing us on how good our music was. In fact, months later we are still getting complements on our music!" - Alex T.
"Hi Daniel, I was just wondering if I could get your mailing address? I want to send you a little something extra for your amazing performance at our wedding. It was an unbelievable day and I think every guest asked me where I found you!" - Erin D.
"I was really lucky to have interviewed one of our brides we featured in our magazine who listed Daniel as the vocal entertainment for her wedding ceremony. Out of curiosity, I checked out his Facebook page and immediately knew I wanted to book Daniel for our live entertainment at our Wedding Expo! Daniel's performance was outstanding and adored by all brides and vendors in attendance. Daniel is a rare gem who's music career we can expect to see quickly flourish. Daniel's performance at our show was romantic and entertaining and his humble kind personality makes you feel as if you're in the presence of a long time friend. I recommend this local musician to all of our brides! He will set the mood for any event or wedding. Thanks again Daniel, you're amazing!" - Kathie Linder of Central Minnesota Brides

"Daniel is going to sing at our wedding in May 2015. He has been so great with us in our journey of planning our wedding music. He has helped give ideas, he's posted videos of songs I have requested within a day or two and he has been extremely kind with me. Besides all of this, he is so talented in what he does, you can clearly see how passionate he is for music." - Tabitha B.
"We had an absolute blast having you a part of the wedding. Couldn't have asked for a better musician. We received compliment among compliment about your singing. Thanks again for all your help and you made it seamless for us. I do have a quick question. You didn't by chance take a video of you singing Love Someone [Jason Mraz] did you? We have fallen in love with the song and would love to get that video of you singing it if you wouldn't mind and you taped it." - Adam J.
"Thank you for your wonderful music at the wedding -- both the ceremony and the social hour. We had so many people commenting on how great the music was, and how did we ever find you?! You added a very special feel to the ceremony, simple and easy, yet classy and elegant." Tori L. (Mother of the Groom)
Best of luck in your event planning, and thank you for considering me for your special event!
