Biography

“Dan is not only a talented Sax player and DJ but a true gent. His energy and professionalism coupled with the amazing playlists put together both on the Sax and for the DJ sets made for the most amazing party!! All my guests are raving about Dan and cannot wait to see him back at my wedding. ” – Liz Locke, The Apprentice UK

Having moved to London after recording his debut album (“Playin’ It Cool”) at the renowned Chetham’s School of Music, Dan Goode has rapidly become the UK’s most popular saxophonist/DJ. Within a year of moving to London he had already broken into the top end of the music scene in the city, performing at 150+ events each year at its biggest and most renowned venues, for celebrities as well as for big-name corporations.

Dan offers a complete, top-class DJ service with high-end, festival grade moving head lights, and a superb sound system which can cater for up to 350 people. He can provide DJ sets in any style, from current chart music to old classics (motown, 70s, 80s), as well as R&B, House, Club Classics, Hip Hop, Indie Rock, Garage and more, with a song collection of over 25,000 songs. He plays sax whilst DJing and leaves the booth whilst playing his sax to interact with the crowd and amp up the energy.

Dan’s recent clients include the BBC, Kiss FM and P&G, and recent venues include Ronnie Scott’s, the Hippodrome, the Landmark and the Grove. Dan has performed at many different locations across the UK and the world, ranging from small intimate parties at the Ritz to performing for crowds of over 15,000 at the Ascot Races. Dan performs frequently in Italy, Mallorca, and France, as well as having performed in Miami and Portugal for Teddy Sheringham & Krissy’s wedding.

As an artist, Dan has amassed a fanbase of over 190,000 followers across social media platforms Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Soundcloud. This includes Dan’s dedicated DJ profile “Daniel Chase”, through which he releases his own original EDM music and music videos, and is currently working with the likes of Hospitality D&B.

Dan’s “All of Me” cover, released in 2015, has since become the most popular sax cover of the song on Soundcloud worldwide. He also recently released a cover of “Passionfruit” which features his own vocals and sax.

Dan has an extensive sax repertoire (150+ songs) which he knows from memory, and a keen ear, allowing him to play any style of music, with a playlist tailored to the audience and the event itself. His repertoire ranges from background (jazz/lounge/ballads) to upbeat pop music and he also performs saxophone whilst DJing. Dan will play a selection of musical styles catered specifically to your event, usually starting with chilled background music and progressing to higher energy music as the night goes on. He is also happy to learn any requests from memory and never uses a music stand.

Dan brings all necessary equipment and services to provide you with the perfect range of entertainment throughout your special day or event, leaving the audience wowed and always ending the night on an unforgettable high.

“Hey Dan, Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for playing at our wedding, you really made the day. Having our guests up singing along to Angels before food had even finished was a real highlight. Everyone was commenting on how amazing you were and we have had lots of requests for your details. Just need to think of another party excuse to get you booked in again!

“Hi Dan, Just wanted to drop you a quick note to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for all the work you and Jayden put into making our wedding reception so amazing. Your set up with the starlit booth and speakers gave us both a wow moment when we peeked at the room before our reception The sax during the meal was so beautiful and really helped to calm our nerves after the rush to get ready and the excitement of the ceremony. I did not come off the dancefloor all night, or have any wedding cake or buffet, because I was having such a great time. I had planned an outfit change but in the end I didn’t want to miss a single track! Thank you for playing all of our requests, and your suggestion for the last track of the night was magic. Our guests are still talking about what a fabulous evening they had. We hope you both enjoyed it as well Best wishes Charlotte & Stephen Nelson”

– Charlotte & Stephen Nelson (Wedding, Hilton Metropole (Brighton)) 10/10


“Knowing that music would be the key to our event made choosing a DJ a nerve wracking experience. When planning our party at the Four Seasons Park Lane, we had to have someone who was classy, professional, knowledgeable, respectful of religious circumstances and a brilliant DJ. Thank goodness we found Dan- he was all this and so much more. We cannot recommend him highly enough. From the best music ever to suit our crowd, to the most amazing live sax playing, to the sound and lights… Dan was the best we’d ever seen. His professionalism, ease to approach, classy style, venue knowledge and anything in between Dan was fantastic. All our guests said the music was like listening to their own favourite party playlist. Thank you Dan. I never write reviews but I had to in this case. Xx Karen and Gary”

– Karen and Gary Morris (Bar Mitzvah (The Four Seasons Hotel)) 10/10


“Dan Plays Sax exceptionally and his mate is a bongo ninja!!! Dan was fantastic, the guests loved the fact he not only played the epic tunes we requested mixed up with other dancefloor hits, but that he got totally immersed in the crowd and really kept the party going! The Vengaboys was a lively act to follow but he kept the party spirit going! We would highly recommend him for any personal or corporate events. Sam was incredible too on the bongos, I hope his blisters have healed! Great feedback from staff on your both :-)”

– Kate Mcloughlin (Euler Hermes) 10/10


“Hi Dan, We wanted to write to thank you so much for being part of our wedding day. Our aim on the day was to ensure everyone had a good time and you absolutely contributed to that. The dance floor was never empty and we have had so many comments about how fantastic the DJ was. It shows a lot about your skill as a DJ to read the room and ensure everyone is up dancing. It made the evening so special for us both. Your Sax playing was spot on! We also kept this element a secret from most of the guests and the reaction was amazing! It really contributed to the party atmosphere and made the event even more memorable. Thanks again and best wishes, Chelsie and Adam”

– Chelsie Bennett (Wedding) 10/10


“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for Friday night – you were brilliant and I don’t think I have ever seen a dance floor so continually packed! On the sax front – so many people remarked on how talented you are and it was wonderful having you playing as we danced. I know we were a really small group (not to mention the age thing….) and so thank you for not minding (!) – you were definitely one of the highlights of the evening – and a number of people have asked for your details for future events. Thank you again – you made it an unforgettably wonderful birthday for me! Josephine x”

– Josephine Defty (50th Birthday Party ) 10/10


“I wanted to say a few words about our wedding which Dan performed at last June. Dan was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and was extremely flexible, especially in providing the DJ service which I forgot to book! When Dan arrived, he was smart, very polite and started set up quickly. Our guests commented on how nice the chill out music was in the afternoon and equally how much fun Dan was during the evening. The highlight for everyone was when Dan came out from behind the stage and played his saxophone to the music, at the same time as a few of us joined him with our air saxophones! Dan is a true professional, great fun, extremely talented and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants an awesome entertainer. It was a shame the evening had to end when it did. On a personal note, Dan you were brilliant, thanks a lot, I wish you all the best with your music career and I hope to have you at another event in the future. All the best. Jon and Jo”

– Jon and Jo Willis (Wedding) 10/10


“We couldn’t recommend Dan more highly to anyone looking for fun filled entertainment. He performed at our wedding and his choice of music and Saxophone sets were incredible. When we thought it couldn’t get any better he rapped. A truly unbelievable day and we have had so many compliments from our guests about Dan – the dance floor was full all night. Thank you Dan. (James & Rosie Slater)!”

– Jamie Slater (Wedding) 10/10


“I wanted to say thank you so much for providing such awesome entertainment for our wedding! Everyone has commented on how amazing the day was from Holly singing, to the sax on the dance floor to the awesome playlist that you provided. The dance floor was packed the whole evening which is exactly what Andy and I wanted and that is down to you so thank you, thank you, thank you. Lots of people have asked for your contact details and I will continue to shout about you to everyone who needs entertainment for a future event as your customer service from initial enquiry to the event was spot on! Thank you again, Kind Regards, Emily”

“Ronnie and I are on such a high from our wedding yesterday. We are talking through all the wonderful things that were part of our special day and without a doubt you are up there with the best bits!! You absolutely nailed it! From the minute we arrived at the venue and saw you in the garden with your sax we knew you were going to be on point! The sun was shining, our guests were eating canapés and drinking champers whilst being entertained with your chilled Ibiza playlist. It was perfect!! Throughout the meal you got the tone exactly right and then the evening… Well how do I put it into words – absolutely smashed it!! Guests all night were dancing on the dance floor and your mixing was flawless! You covered our every request and there was literally something for everyone. We cannot thank you enough and you were worth every penny! You are truly awesome!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! With love, The New Mr and Mrs Oswald xxx!
