Reviews - What People are Saying

Billy Club Chico Fundraiser 6/5/2010
Special thanks to Eric Richter and the 1078 Gallery for hosting us and to Daniel Mandel for sharing his terrific music and creating the friendly ambiance that really made the event.

I enjoy hearing your songs. I especially like hearing the evolving changes in your
performance. Your singing seems confident."

Daniel Mandel's original songs and beautiful acoustic guitar come directly from his
heart to your's. Daniel's new performance was developed in collaboration with
Boulder's extraordinary artists Paul Oertel and Nancy Spanier, who worked with him
to sequence and choregraph his songs into an evocative and moving show. Don't
miss it, in the intimate Exhibitrex!

Mary Belochi 5 Stars!
This performance is in my gallery, exhibitrek, but I feel the need to comment. Daniel
is a very strong lyricist and his voice "aint bad" either. If you've ever been in love,
had an unrequited love, confused, overwhelmed, passionate about someone...
you'll not want to miss this performance. I thought it was wonderful. A little heavy
for children, however, my 11 year son and his friend still enjoyed it and we
discussed the songs afterwards.

Dale Tanis 5 Stars!
Inspiring!! Daniel Mandel sings and performs from his heart to ours, connecting to
those human elements that many of us would rather not discuss. He does so in a
way that brings forth a yearning to be heard, to be known, instead of making us
feel uncomfortable. Share the human experience! Go see Daniel Mandel's

Jason Ng 4 Stars!
Good lyrics that hits the heart - and very beautiful guitar playing and chords.
