Dan Devion

Dan The Music Man - Musical Entertainment for Kids of All Ages

Bio

Dan, The Music Man a.k.a. Dan Devion is an original. A songwriter and entertainer whose enthusiastic performances have made him a favourite of family audiences all over his native Canada, the United States and as far away as Seoul, South Korea! Dan has released four acclaimed albums to date and performed to over a million children and families from coast to coast! The accent is on participation, comedy, and entertainment.  A proven mix of original songs, seasonal Christmas, and classic family favourites make up Dan, The Music Man!  +

His message is one of unity, imagination, merriment and the magic of youth. Dan says, "I love to hear that families enjoy this music together. When I see parents laughing, participating and really having fun at the shows with their children, I see them rediscover a little of what their kids feel every day! It's truly a wonderful thing to be a part of!"

Born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, Daniel Devion has lived in many of the cities of Canada. Dan pleaded for his first guitar at age 12 and began a life long adventure with music. Dan and his family live in the dynamic, multicultural and cosmopolitan city of Toronto.

As a young man, Dan traveled from coast to coast in Canada, through the United States and the Caribbean, playing with bands and as a solo singer/guitarist, perfecting his musicianship and developing a unique ability to entertain. Recalling his first invitation to perform at a young audience event in the early '90s, "For the first time in over ten years of performing, I was nervous and absolutely terrified! I was asked to write a theme song for a Children's Variety Show in Pickering, Ontario. The song ended up on TV and radio as an advertising jingle. Through an unexpected turn of events, I suddenly found myself the M.C. and first act of the live show! I looked out at this sea of young faces and just began to play. I was overwhelmed by the responsiveness of the children and how eager they were to get involved, truly enjoying the fun of it all."

Dan hasn't been nervous since. A fond connection with this new young audience was born. "From the outset, I tried to create a style of music, a show and an atmosphere in which the children, parents, teachers and care givers could all truly enjoy themselves, together. No parents reading paperbacks at these shows! It's fun for the kids but is really fun when we bring out the kids at heart!" says Dan.

Dan has appeared on C.B.C., Global and CHCH television and has performed to audiences from coast to coast in Canada, The U.S. and even the islands of Bermuda and St. Maarten! Dan performs over 150 shows per year!  --
