Dan Blaze

Full time DJ and Entertainer, since the Year 2000 Dan Blaze has plenty of experience hosting events for kids and adults. Professional DJ, Entertainer, Quiz master and singer.

Dan is a regular presenter of the Weekend Warmup on ‘Red Kite Radio’ the local radio station for Thame, Haddenham and the surrounding villages.

Dan Says “This is my full time Job - NOT an occasional hobby” I host different styles of events for all ages with a variety of party packages from interactive kids parties to formal Military functions, comprehensive Wedding packages and public events.
Some people see one of my kids shows and can’t imagine me hosting a formal military Ball or Wedding and vice versa but each show is different and that’s the fun for me to never really know what to expect from a gig. I couldn’t work in an office....

I aim to provide more than you're expecting and hopefully my reviews show that - Here:
