Daniel Arvidson is one of this region′s best-known entertainers. And we mean entertainer, not just musician!
Regardless of what the occasion, venue or function is, if there are people there…consider them entertained! For over twenty five years in such a competitive industry, Daniel remains one of the most in-demand acts due to his connectivity to his audience. He specialises in involving all who are in ear-shot of his mic, taking requests (his repertoire is staggering!) and making everyone feel he is singing WITH them, not at them.
It is not unusual at his shows to have literally everyone in the room singing along. Daniel has the ability to create such a bond with his audience that people can′t help but join in on the fun!
This is Daniel′s niche. This is his point of difference. This is what makes him such a highly sought-after entertainer for weddings, corporate dinners, birthday parties, Christmas functions – any event that′s all about FUN and celebration. He creates an experience you and your guests will never forget.
Daniel has performed around the world, in Italy, the US and the Caribbean, and has played before audiences of thousands (up to 40,000!) on home soil. Whether playing to thousands or an intimate audience of fewer than 40 people, he knows how to ′read the crowd′ and deliver just the right song at just the right time.
Daniel has won the ′Wedding Entertainer of NSW′ Award from the ABIA (Australian Bridal Industry Academy) and several ABC 1233 Music Awards for his song-writing. In addition to playing at hundreds of weddings & private functions, Daniel has been booked by many corporate clients including; Keller Civil Engineers, Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club, Crest Financial Services, Coles, Myer, Kingston Building, Blue Circle Southern Cement, Master Foods, GWH Group, IGA, PCWI International, Balance Health, Radio Newcastle, Woolworths, Hunter Surf Life Saving, Worldwide Conference Professionals, The Starlight Foundation, Hunter Imaging, Booths Motor Group, SKE Contractors, Australian Manufacturing Workers Union, Rubicon Point, Capercaillie Wine Company, Newcastle & Hunter Road Transport Awareness Group, Best & Less, Hunter Tourist Information Centre and Lake Macquarie City Council.

‘I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know what a wonderful time we had on Saturday night. Daniel was so much fun! He had all our guests singing and dancing. Everybody loved him, especially us. Apart from being an amazing performer he was also a lovely guy, and nothing was too much effort. Could you please pass on our sincere thanks for making our wedding so much fun.’
– Ashley Wyatt & Colin Oates, Wedding Reception
I cannot put into words how amazing Daniel is! The night was perfect and our 15 delegates we were showcasing the region to absolutely loved him and were extremely disappointed when we had to end the night (especially seeing they had two huge days and were quite tired). Daniel just created the atmosphere that made the night and without him it definitely would not have been as successful.’
