HOUSE PARTIES A SPECIALITY.

Dai will come to your home, or any other venue convenient to you , for an afternoon or evening of singing and comedy! You and your guests will be treated to a real variety show-a hilarious hour or two , and you will also listen to, and take part in, the singing of lots of your favorites. Dai will be sure to include some of his own original best loved songs too , which are unique , and touch on the Valley, Canada, Wales, and funny things about life in general.

For such occasions, a relatively new approach is becoming very popular with Dai and many of his friends who entertain. The hosts quite commonly charge a nominal admission fee , or invite attendees to make a donation. This means that per person , the cost is low. Other times, such as for family parties, the hosts prefer to cover Dai's fee themselves. His fee will vary to reflect the distance to travel, and he is ALWAYS open to offers! An average fee would be in the region of $150 to $200, for as long as you want Dai to perform. He supplies the sound equipment-all he asks for is water and coffee!!!...Oh-and a table.


Known as " The Welsh Guy with the Big Smile ", Dai has performed on many and various stages, for  40 years.

His rich singing voice,tremendous sense of fun, and songwriting skills are well known and respected.

In recent years he has included more well-known and popular songs in his vast repertoire, and he delivers a show filled with variety, songs whicch get us singing or humming along.

He writes songs and poems, and tells stories suited to all ages, which will appeal to a broad spectrum of society. A typical engagement would last between 45 minutes and an hour - sometimes shorter, sometimes longer - depending on the requirements for your occasion. Dai is a true entertainer who really captures the humour in everyday situations, and many of his songs and poems reflect this. His repertoire includes many funny compositions which are guaranteed to hold an audience captive (See Song List).

Suitable for golf clubs, fairs, rotary clubs, civitan groups, or any social event that requires top quality entertainment. Guaranteed to please ,  he specializes in mixed audiences and guarantees a clean show at which everyone is sure to laugh and nobody will be offended:)

Seniors Residences always enjoy a performance , and Dai is a frequent repeat visitor to many of these wonderful establishments. He has a great rapport with the older generation, and when called upon in also able to introduce a few hymns when the audience will often join in. Dai says humourously, "Hymns are like people, the old ones are often the best!".

"For the past six years I have had the great pleasure of working with Dai Bassett. As the artistic director for the Stone Fence Theatre I got to know Dai and his many talents very well. Working on any project that Dai was involved in meant that the process would move ahead easily- you could count on Dai’s commitment and total involvement in both rehearsal and performance. As a stage personality Dai is very versatile: he can “clown”, and always gets the most out of any comic part. Conversely, in a serious role he shows sensitivity that makes the character believable. As a master of ceremonies, Dai has a natural talent for putting the audience at ease and always finds a way to connect with the crowd. We have worked together in a lot of musical theatre. Dai has a wonderful voice, and in either solo or chorus, he makes every song sound great. A commanding stage presence, a multi talented performer, a man who takes his commitment to every performance seriously, that describes the Dai Bassett I have come to know." - Barry Goldie
