Dani Joy is a California based singer/songwriter/instructor and proud featured artist of Ko’aloha Ukulele.
Her world influenced musical style is soothing and romantic, blending old time jazz with Bossa nova/exotica genres. She is most noted for her crooning alto vocals and tasteful ukulele fingerpicking and accompaniment.
Soon after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design (Illustration 2010), her dad Stu Herreid gave her a ukulele, opening an unexplored world of jazz and endless possibilities on four simple strings. Expressing her art through music, Dani has entranced audiences across the country, inviting them in with her velvet vocals and compassionate style of teaching.
Accompanying her on the upright bass is Perry Stauffer, whose bass lines are not just foundational, but extraordinary. The pair offers a seamless charisma that will keep you smiling to the end.
