Danny Bacher is an award-winning singer, saxophonist, songwriter and entertainer. He's not only a master of the demanding soprano sax, but combines this virtuosity with a talent for comedy and narrative storytelling. Cut from the cloth as the greats Louis Prima and Mel Torme, Bacher swings, scats and sings, earning praise from Stephen Holden of The New York Times, who said of Bacher, "he's a prodigiously talented musical preservationist," who knows that "the secret of serious fun is not to take it too seriously." In addition to jazz and cabaret, Bacher has also worked as an actor, comedian and writer, touring internationally with his original works.He has released two studio albums as a leader, Swing That Music! and Still Happy on the Whaling City Sound label. He is also a recent recipient of the Margaret Whiting Award for burgeoning talent.

His musical Fairy Tale ran at the 14th Street Theatre after a developmental production at NYMF. He has worked at The Duplex, Stonewall Inn and Don't Tell Mama, and currently works Saturday nights at Brandy's Piano Bar.

In 2010 he turned his focus to learning the electric bass touring the US with Stephie Coplan & The Pedestrians, while their single JERK hit #14 on the alt-rock charts. Three years later he picked up the double bass to tour Europe with rockabilly band Jumbo Brown. Since 2016 Hebert has been studying privately at the Joe Solomon Jazz Improvisation Workshop. Currently, his short film O'er The Water is making the film festival circuit and has been nominated four times for Best Pilot/Web Series.
