Profile:
Born on the KZN South Coast, Dieter always enjoyed making music – starting on the drums at only eight years old! His favorite past time throughout his schooling and University careers (Dieter holds B.Sc and H.D.E. qualifications) became his full time occupation in 1988 when he turned professional. He hasn’t looked back since!
 
Dieter was employed by Sun International as an entertainer for over ten years – performing, compering and organizing events. In 1998, he joined Global Resorts as Entertainment & Promotions Executive at SA’s first licensed casino, Graceland Hotel, Casino & Country Club and in 1999 started his own business – Dieter Uken Entertainment. Dieter continues to be the Entertainment Consultant for Graceland.
 
Dieter is a sought after musical entertainer (playing the saxophone, harmonica, piano, guitar & vocals) who performs a wide variety of music and is able to adapt his repertoire to suit almost any audience! His repertoire ranges from Jazz Standards, Rock ‘n Roll, South African (African & Afrikaans) to the latest Top Ten hits and he has become best known for his ability to create the right mood for any occasion and for his impersonations of greats from Satchmo & Sinatra to Shaggy!
 
As a result, he is in great demand for corporate functions and has established long-term relationships with Corporate Clients such as Spar (including Ladder of Success 2008 trip to Mauritius), Build It, Agrinet, Sportron, Chamber of Mines, Sasol, Anglo American, BMW, NTT VW & Toyota, Exxaro, Mica, Sun International, Tsogo Sun, Peermont, Begin Africa and Pam Golding Properties (including 2008 Convention in Seychelles) to name but a few. 
 
As MC, Dieter has hosted numerous Dream Car Draws – from the Sun City Superbowl to the Graceland Arena – he has compered international beauty pageants, international Boxing (SABC and Mnet Supersport Boxing Announcer in 2009) and marshal arts events for live television. Dieter was the only entertainer at the World Champions, Springbok Rugby Fan Day at Secunda Stadium in 2008. He also hosted the “Big Brother 1” after 2.parties at Graceland as well as the Caesars Gauteng (now Emperors Palace) Dream House Draws with fellow presenters Amor Vittone and Barry Hilton.
 
This combination of MC and entertainer has resulted in Dieter being in demand not only for Casino promotions, sports events and corporate functions, but also for social events, such as Anneline Kriel and Peter Bacon’s “Wedding of the Year” a few years ago. In May 2006 Dieter performed on the Greek Isles (Naxos Island) - literally on the beach for a fairy tale wedding. He has performed at many of the most prestigious wedding venues in the country (Royal Chamber at the The Palace, Michaelangelo, Hyatt and Hilton Hotels, One & Only in Cape Town, Avianto, Memoire, Oakfields, etc).
 
Dieter has also been involved with several Golf tournaments (such as the Sun City Million Dollar, Royal Swazi Open, Mmabatho Palms Challenge and the Jock of the Bushveld). He is also a regular entertainer for FEI World Cup show jumping Qualifiers.
   
Dieter’s main objective is always to give the client/audience a good time in a professional manner and to ensure that they have been entertained in the best possible way! This philosophy along with realistic and negotiable pricing have proved to be a winner!
