Surprisingly, we have something in common.
We both want to make your company’s next big event a huge success – we just go about it in different ways.
You do it by hiring the best talent available, and I do it from the stage, making you look good for hiring me.
That’s a win-win for both of us.
I’m Dan Gillogly, aka “Dan the Piano Man.” I’ve been providing music and comedy entertainment for company events, product rollouts, sales seminars and trade shows for many years.
I’ve been successful because I deliver the three main things that you and other event planners want: unique entertainment, attendees who really enjoy themselves, and a truly memorable event.
I offer live piano music, featuring original and parody songs that drive your message home faster than a ballot box getting stuffed during a Chicago election.
I honed my craft at Second City in Chicago, where I was hired for a 3-week fill-in stint and ended up staying for 10 years. I joined the ranks of Bonnie Hunt, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Chris Farley, Tina Fey and Dan Akroyd, just to name a few.
Understanding improv and how to relate to an audience in personal ways is what sets me apart from all other entertainers.
With my live music, it becomes a truly interactive show, engaging the audience in a truly memorable way.
Everyone at your event wants to join in and be a part of the fun. It makes for a very successful event.
I’d love to talk to you about what I bring to the table, er, piano, and a short conversation is the best way to do it.
I call it “phone improv.” I promise it’ll be enjoyable.
Please call me at your convenience at 773-527-7417.
You know I qualified for the Olympics again this year. But I decided not to go. It wouldn’t be fair to the other athletes. I would have won all the medals especially on Track &Field. I mean that would be selfish of me.
Oh this sarcasm doesn’t look too good in print. Honestly, I’m surprised at how much of an expert I’ve become in sports I don’t know anything about. I was watching the platform divers last night and I had no idea how dangerous that sport could be. Those divers hit the water at 30+ mph. One wrong move and Ouch!
Then there’s me from my recliner in my living room looking to relax and I can only think there is not enough tape in the world to protect my wrists from hitting the water the wrong way. Then I find myself becoming VERY opinionated about the Splash Meter. When I used to watch this sport on the Wide World of Sports years ago, I don’t remember having it so easy. Yet here I sit with a beverage and a meter to gauge how much liquid should be acceptable in my life when it comes to platform divers.
You should have heard me last week during 2 man kayaking!
