Danny Bacher is an award-winning singer, saxophonist, songwriter, and entertainer in the fullest sense of the term. Danny is a smooth and cool individual who makes hot jazz and pop, cut from the cloth of the great Louis Prima and Mel Torme. Bacher swings with pizzazz, scats and sings with a smoky voice, all adding to his compelling stage presence. Stephen Holden in The New York Times said of Bacher that he’s a “prodigiously talented musical preservationist,” adding what Bacher knows in his bones is that “the secret of serious fun is not to take it too seriously.”
In addition to a solid career in jazz, cabaret and pop with a penchant for rare gems, and classic standards from the Great American Songbook, Danny has also worked as an actor, comedian and writer, touring internationally with his original works. Along with a busy touring schedule and working at venues such as the Blue Note, Birdland, Feinstein’s 54 Below, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and Town Hall, he has performed several times at Carnegie Hall, and most recently alongside the legendary Michael Feinstein.
Danny has released two studio albums as a leader, Swing That Music! and Still Happy on the Whaling City Sound label. A recent recipient of the prestigious Margaret Whiting Award, Danny was nominated for best male vocalist in the 2019 National Jazz Times reader’s poll along with Harry Connick, Gregory Porter and Tony Bennett, and in 2020 placed in the top three male vocalists in the country.
