American Dan Block is an exceptionally talented reed player, a stylish arranger and composer, a skilful bandleader and a valued sideman. He has performed for Broadway shows and Hollywood movies. He is versed in many styles from the earliest New Orleans traditions to the modal jazz of the 1960s and 1970s. A native of St Louis, Dan took up the saxophone just short of his 14th birthday, the trumpet soon after and the clarinet the following year. He has played with many big bands during his successful career and worked on many soundtracks for television and movies.

You’ll be sure to have the ‘time of your life’ with this smash-hit show, ‘An Evening of Dirty Dancing’. This box office smash hit tribute to one of the greatest movie soundtracks has been wowing audiences all over the UK since 2010. Featuring all of the hits from the iconic movie superbly choreographed and presented by a cast of West End stars, travel back to the summer of ’63 and re-live Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey’s breathtaking performances.
