Daniel Wilson’s on stage routines were always a delight for their flamboyance and provocativeness. His unique switch from a smooth silky vocal to a gravelly roughneck voice gave the impression Daniel Wilson combined both ‘street’ and ‘class’ sounds. When he was on stage and sang it’s almost like he physically touched everyone in his audience. Over time his concert crowds became increasingly rowdy and overly exuberant especially whenever he plays hits like “Mister Ragamuffin” “Ragamuffin Soldier’ 999” “Gimme Calypso” the crowd would go wild.
This led him to take a break from performing in certain venues where his real grass roots audience tends to dominate. Despite the obstacles of segregation surrounding the genre of music he played, he performed at prestigious venues and earned acclaim for his work.
