I’ve had the opportunity to see Danny on numerous occasions and his performance at our Conference Luncheon was rated amongst the top. He was very funny, knew exactly what the crowd was looking for and kept them in stitches. The small auction for charity was a success thanks to Danny—I would not hesitate to have him at future functions.
