Strung Up and Blown Away – by Danny Elliott
Danny Elliott is one of the world’s most versatile entertainers, playing more than twelve different musical instruments, singing and even tap dancing.
There’s little argument that Danny Elliott is a truly gifted musician and performing artist.
“Strung Up and Blown Away” brings his talents to the fore in a spectacular showcase of musical expertise. His showmanship and incredible singing voice add to the entertainment extravaganza.
Adding to the “Strung Up and Blown Away” experience is beautiful vocalist, Sharna Le-Grand, who performs in her own right and joins Danny for some show-stopping duets. A focal point is a tribute to the late Peter Allen and Judy Garland in “Quiet Please/Somewhere Over The Rainbow”, a moving arrangement Danny has crafted featuring these famous “in-laws”.
Whether playing light classics or swing on traditional instruments like piano, flute, clarinet and saxophone or a little country guitar, banjo, fiddle and harmonica or perhaps the stirring didgeridoo, the haunting pan flute, the Irish penny whistle or even some rock and roll on the bagpipes; there’s no doubt about the energy and enchantment Danny creates on stage and shares with his audience.
Danny’s versatility sees him as one of the most sought-after entertainers on the ever increasing cruise ship market where standing ovations are the order of the day (or evening) for the excited passengers. In fact, on his first international contract, Danny was signed to play aboard world-famous cruise liner, the QEII. Renowned for its cultured, demanding guests, Danny’s unique ability to play successive instruments in a single show drew standing ovations from the tough crowds and glowing reviews from the ship’s entertainment director.
Further highlights have been as support act for Entertainment Industry legends such as Dame Shirley Bassey, The Supremes, The Ten Tenors, Marina Prior and the Tommy Tycho Orchestra. He was also proud to receive the 31st annual ‘MO Variety Performer of the Year’ award and was nominated for the ‘MO Performer of the Year’ award alongside eventual-winner Hugh Jackman.
