I'm dedicated to offering the perfect musical compliment to any event you might be planning in the Vancouver area.

From solo jazz guitar to a grooving jazz quartet, The right music will make your next event a wonderful and memorable experience for everyone.

Jazz presence

I'm using jazz presence to reference two distinct, yet complimentary qualities that my work embodies. One is the sophisticated, relaxed and engaging presence that my music is guaranteed to bring to your event; the other being my capacity to bring my full presence and attentiveness to your event, the attendees, and the atmosphere you’ve created. With my present approach to being in the room, with the people, I will guide the music into being the perfect enhancement of the broader event experience.

"Daryl has been working with our production teams for 15+ years to provide the perfect musical ambience for our events. The caliber of performance, the flexibility, and the positive audience feedback make him my first call for jazz in any configuration."

Tahira Endean - Event Producer

Event Jazz

Event jazz can provide the perfect backdrop for so many occasions, supporting an environment in which people can relax and connect with each other without being intruded upon by the band. To me great event jazz means when someone happens to pause to take in what they’re hearing, perhaps caught by a familiar favourite, they're taken by a heightened appreciation of the music, the musicianship, and the overarching specialness of the event they’ve been invited to.

I believe you're looking to create a wonderful and memorable event with the perfect balance between heightened sophistication and relaxed fun. You want your event to be enjoyed and remembered by everyone as absolutely wonderful with a flare for delighting with that something extra. An event with its own joie de vivre.
