Me and Mr Green is the brainchild of Dan Green who, after nine years of leading the successful Me and Mr Brown decided that a change and a freshen up was required to once more take the party circuit by storm.
Me and Mr Green bring the very best party music from previous decades right through to the present day and never fail to create an amazing atmosphere at your event.
With over 700 weddings and countless corporates, festivals and birthdays under his belt, Dan has teamed up with Jeandre – an incredible guitarist and a massive bundle of energy, to create the perfect team. Me and Mr Green are guaranteed to get the party started and keep it there!
Hailing from London, Daniel took the plunge and moved down to South Africa in April 2007 and loved it so much that he decided to stay! Dan has music in his blood. His younger brother Jon is a major song writer based out of Nashville and London, writing hits for a load of major artists including Linkin Park, Lady Antebellum and James Bay.
Having been trained on the drums since the age of seven, Daniel has been playing in bands as long as he can remember, performing all over his native London as well as accumulating a whole host of recording experiences in some of the country’s finest studios including Abbey road and Air Studios.
Having graduated with a History degree from University, Dan went into the travel industry where he remained for over a decade before moving south. He began strumming his guitar again for fun once settled in South Africa, commencing a journey which now sees him as one half of one of South Africa’s best Live party cover bands, Me and Mr Green.
Daniel is an avid Arsenal fan, a lover of fine wine and food and lives in Noordhoek with his wife Lindi and their three children Charlie, Daisy and Liv as well as their two dogs, two tortoises and two pigs!
Jeandre hails from South Africa’s Northern Cape pioneer town of Kimberley. Having grown up on a farm, Jeandre was a keen sportsman but an injury led him to take a keener interest in music, first starting out behind the drum kit. Then, an epiphany occurred- having watched Mark Knopfler’s ‘One Night in Rome’, he swore then and there that he was going to master the guitar.
Having matriculated from school in Kimberley, Jeandre followed his passion to Cape Town where he studied guitar. Jeandre is now one of the best young guitarists in South Africa with an impressive CV performing shows (including Arena tours) with virtually all of South Africa’s top artists including Karen Zoid and Francois Van Coke. Jeandre’s on-stage energy is infectious.
As well as performing with Me and Mr Green, Jeandre sells top-end guitars at Music Experience in Cape Town and in his down time loves nothing more than a solid game of FIFA on the Playstation where he claims to be at least in the top 100 players in the country!
