Danny Polaris is a Welsh singer-songwriter drawing inspiration from Adele, Elton John, Amy Winehouse, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn.
He sings Classic House Vocals and original jazz-pop-folk ballads.
The Classic House Live Band
Danny Polaris and his trio (keys, guitar, drums) "The BAND," perform live versions of classic 90s/00s House and Dance tracks.
Some are slowed down into bluesy ballads, others are given a Bossa Nova or Cuban twist and some are kept at a Classic House speed for dancing!
