Magnolia Hotel - Omaha
“Dana was absolutely fabulous to work with!  Responsive to all our emails and questions in a timely manner and easy to get in touch with — which I cannot even begin to say how much I appreciated.  Dana took time to go through all our wedding music selections with us (played everything through, offered suggestions, noted music styles we liked/disliked) and got to know us.  Dana made the very long 4.5 hour drive to and from Omaha to be part of our wedding day. He arrived early with plenty time to set up, meet the bridal party, and rehearse with our vocalist.  Dana also arranged the music and lyrics for the song we lit our unity candle to — it sounded fantastic!  I would highly recommend Dana to any one in need of a musician.  We were both so impressed with Dana’s talent and professionalism; we are so glad we decided to have him play on our wedding day!”

The Peninsula - Chicago
“Dana is both an extraordinary musician and an absolute professional. He was by far the most punctual, accommodating, and reliable vendor at our wedding. He did not need to be managed, or reminded of anything. He told us exactly what he would do and then did it and more. Dana learned a song for us, changed the key so my 11 year old niece could sing to it and then accompanied her flawlessly. Dana really knows how to make music. He is perfect for a wedding or any event. We could not have been more pleased. To top it off, he is genuinely a nice guy. If you are looking for someone to play at your wedding, you found the guy. Thanks again Dana.”

Laurel-Hall Indianapolis
“Dana, You were outstanding.  Andrew and I keep raving at how you came in and went right to doing your thing and we didn’t need to worry. All of a sudden I just heard beautiful music!  We can’t thank you enough, you truly made our day special with your talents.”
    Abbie & Andrew, wedding at Laurel Hall, Indianapolis, IN

Crow Valley Golf Club
“We had the pleasure of having Dana Starkell entertain our members and guests on New Year’s Eve. His music was a perfect fit for an elegant evening. The different style he played made his performance noticed while remaining unobtrusive. As people were leaving at the end of the night, several people commented on how much they had enjoyed the music. We look forward to having Dana back soon!”
Marc Struelens, CCM General Manager/COO Crow Valley Golf Club Hotel

“Perfect musician for a cocktail reception, not overpowering, just adds to the event.”

Fresh Bistro - Spirit Lake
“We were so thrilled and fortunate to have Dana back at our restaurant. This is the third time we have had Dana play in the Lakes area and the second time at my restaurant. He is even starting to get a following with some of my customers. Dana’s music is the perfect accompaniment to our dining experience. We look forward to having him back again and again.”
