2023 Award Winner: Danny Bacher

March 4, 2023


Danny Bacher is an award-winning singer, saxophonist, and songwriter—and an entertainer in the fullest sense of the term. He’s not only a master of the demanding soprano sax, but he also combines his virtuosity on the instrument with a talent for comedy and narrative storytelling. In addition to a solid career in jazz, cabaret, and pop, with a penchant for discovering rare gems and choosing classic standards from the Great American Songbook, he has worked as an actor, comedian, dancer, and writer, touring internationally with his original works. Along with a busy touring schedule and appearances at such New York City venues as the Blue Note, Birdland, 54 Below, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and Town Hall, he has performed several times at Carnegie Hall, recently alongside the legendary Michael Feinstein. Bacher has released two studio albums as a leader, Swing That Music! and Still Happy, on the Whaling City Sound label. He’s a recent recipient of the prestigious Margaret Whiting Award. When not performing, Danny dedicates his time to arts education in his home state of New Jersey. www.dannybachermusic.com
