Darren is a tremendous performer and his Elvis act is outstanding. I booked Darren for my wife's 40th party a few weeks back (sorry for the delay in the review, we are just starting to recover!). A surprise for everyone as well as my wife, Darren arrived early to set up in good time to not spoil the surprise. Everyone was blown away when he strutted out, in costume, as Elvis! One of many, many great memories from the night. Everyone had a complete ball. Darren was so accommodating as well, singing a personal request more than once, an Elvis rendition of 'Happy Birthday' and allowing us to use his PA for our playlist before and after his sets. I cannot thank him enough for making it such an awesome party. Overall, a top quality performer, you will not be disappointed.

Very good entertainer, made a great effort to mix with the audience - coming off the stage, kissing hands, encouraging people to sing into the microphone. Arrived well before time and stayed on longer. Second half was non-stop singing. Everyone enjoyed the evening. I would certainly recommend him.

Darren was fantastic & we will definitely use him again. Thank you to your company for sorting him out for us on such short notice. Many thanks, Tilly & David
Absolutely fantastic. We couldn't have asked for more. Elvis rocked the place from the very start and the party did not let up at all. Everyone thought he was fantastic and he was. Please pass on our thanks. Very professional, sounded and presented himself exactly like the real Elvis did. No doubt we would book him again!!! SUPERB x
