Welcome to DHL Entertainment

I want to thank you for visiting our website.  It is exciting for us to see you here.  This is where the Jazz Standards and music of some of the greatest crooners of all time still live.  The music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr. and many others.  Daniel Henry is proud to be a crooner and couldn't be more honored to sing the songs of these great artists

A reflection of the past few months 

WOW, this endeavor has taken off like I never imagined it would.  The summer was wonderful with the Italian Festival and then the fall with the Fringe Festival.  What a blast that was.  3 shows at Java's Cafe that went so well.  Great crowds and a great reception. People that saw me perform in 2015 at the Fringe specifically came to my show this year because they enjoyed the show the year before.  That always makes me feel good when people come back because they enjoyed you the 1st time around.

The other half of this partnership (the most important half I will add), my wife has been keeping me busy.  She has me working like a dog.  By the end of this year we will have done approximately 75 gigs this year and she already has us scheduled for over 50 gigs next year.   It truly blows me away to think how this has exploded.

I do so enjoy doing this.  Yes I do like the public appearances, things like the Italian Festival or the Fringe.  At these venues I can introduce myself to audiences that may have heard very little if any of the music I sing.  When I can get a young person to enjoy the music it just makes my day.  During the Fringe I had a few young people (college aged) come up to me after the show and tell me how much they loved the music and that just made me feel good.  Then when one young man told me that he has only ever heard a voice like mine in the movies that just made my night.  He was from the School of the Arts and was 18 and he played the drums and sang and danced.  Truly a moment that I will cherish.

But my most favorite moments when doing this business is when the seniors that I sing for come up after the show and they tell me all about the memories that a certain song that I had just sung gives them.  They tell me wonderful personal stories and they let me into their lives.  I've touched their sole and now they have touched mine and I cherish those moments more that I can express.  I have gained a new friend.

So 2017 is looking busy and rewarding so stay tuned.

Festa Italiana 2016 

A successful weekend at The Italian American Community Center with two performances for Festa Italiana! Thank you to everyone for coming! I hope to return next year!! Great people, great food, and a ton of laughter and song . 

Exciting News 

DHL Entertainment will be at Festa Italiana this year.  This takes place on July 15th and July 16th at the Italian American Community Center on Manitou Road.  I'll be performing on both Friday night, on the patio at 6PM and then on Saturday night, in the big tent at 5PM.

There will be more details to follow.

Thoughts of the day 

Had a great show yesterday at the Legacy Park Crescent.  We ran a little long as we added some things on the fly and it was a lesson learned as the seniors got a little restless.  Learned that one of my favorite people and a big fan was in the hospital so he wasn't at the show.  I was disappointed for sure as he ad asked me to learn a song which I prepared and he wasn't there to hear it.  I'm pack there in a few weeks so we will get him to hear it then.

I'm looking for ways to get out in public more.  Somewhere where maybe the right person will be there to notice me.  Spoke with the owner of the Braddock Bay Tavern and Grill on Saturday night and there is a good possibility that you may be seeing me there during dinner hours soon.  A 6 to 9 pm show on a Saturday.  We will keep you posted for sure.

Working hard 

I've got 3 shows this weekend so we've been working hard getting them all prepared.  Couple of new spots.  We are doing the Jewish Home as well as St. Johns Brickstone.  So those have to be good so they want me back.

Worked on some new songs yesterday 

Good afternoon, Worked on "My Kind of Town", "Love Me Tender", and "Aint That a Kick in the Head" yesterday.  Will be working on "Beyond the Sea" today.  I want to keep updating my play list.  My plan is to learn 1 to 2 new songs per week while also maintaining the old ones to sing at a moments notice.  Have 3 shows this weekend so we need to be ready.

Things are coming along 

We have applied to the Rochester Lilac Festival, wish us luck.  They should get back to us before April 1st.  Working on this website and feeling really good about the business.

Would love to hear from you
