“I heard Daniel Watson perform his own piano composition during a dinner gala at the 1899 Event Center. Generally dinner musicians, like great sound technicians, aren’t noticed when they’re doing a good job, but Daniel’s piano accompaniment was like a sweet aroma in the room or the perfect aperitif, setting the mood and making us wish for more! I recommend him highly.”
- Mary Lofton, Event Coordinator

"Throughout the scheduling and planning process of the Christmas Gala, he communicated with us in a timely manner and was very in tune with our event goals as well as choices of music. He and his students did an amazing job that evening! I so appreciate his expertise and would highly recommend his services."
