Dale Ellis


For a whole variety of reasons, not just limited to budget, some couples and event planners find themselves restricted to the size of act they can book. With Dale Ellis there is simply no need to compromise. Wonderful live music from an incredibly talented singer/guitarist for under £500 - that's less than the cost of a decent DJ.

Dale with Hireaband

Why compromise when you can have such a fantastic talent perform at your wedding or event? Dale is a hugely talented and enormously experienced musician with an enviable reputation as one of the most in demand young musicians Manchester has to offer.  He's a full time musician, involved in many projects but available exclusively to Hireaband clients as a solo entertainer of the very highest calibre.

He's performed extensively not only in his native Manchester and the UK but in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, South America, the USA and across Europe. All this experience is channeled into every performance so that you're party is guaranteed to be enhanced by the inclusion of this fabulously talented young man.

When you book Dale, you'll be in good company as he's performed for some very prestigious companies and for a number of celebrities. His experience includes performance on board some of the biggest and most glamorous cruise ships in the world including Celebrity Cruise ships Millennium, Infinity, Solstice and Silhouette.

Dale has a BA(Hons) Degree in Music among a long list of other qualifications, but it's on stage and in his interaction with audiences large and small that he really excels. If you thought your venue too small or your budget too limited for live music, then think again.  All this talent can be yours for less than the cost of a decent DJ - that's because Dale makes his entire living performing music so his fees are realistic and designed to keep him busy which is absolutely the case.  As a consequence his availability is very limited but enquire right now by filling in our quick enquiry form for instant availability and an instant quote.  It's the best thing you can do to make your event a huge success.
