Darron was excellent. His ability to play the guitar with over 800 songs is truly astounding. He went above and beyond and entertained our guest for 4 1/2 hours long.

It was a delight to have Darron perform at our place for my husbands birthday. We enjoyed listening to the 50’s,60’s and the 70’s music! He is a stellar performer and connects with the audience so well. All the songs that he performed was simply amazing and added so much joy to our event. We would love to have him perform again! Thank you, Darron for your wonderful music!

Watching Darron play guitar was a gift. Not only is he talented, but you can see his passion flow through his notes. He was very engaging with the residents, and they hated to see him go. 10/10 experience and would recommend.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For Darron playing solo: $100 per hour with 3 hour minimum on Friday and Saturday. For Darron and Jeff: $150 per hour with 3 hour minimum on Friday and Saturday. Can be negotiated depending on circumstances. If tipping is allowed is one consideration. If traveling outside of Metro/Phoenix travel/lodging costs will be applied. Daytime minimum is 1 hour (Darron playing solo only available) Check my website for my calendar when I am available. My payment terms are cash due at time services are provided. Sorry, I do not accept personal checks.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I engage the customer as to special requests. I try to play as many special requests songs as possible. The sooner I know of a special song that may not be in my current repertoire - the sooner I can start practicing. Unfortunately, I cannot garuntee that I can learn all special requests in a given time frame due to scheduling constraints.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I listen to music all the time. I also take requests from my audiences. Any song someone requests, that I don't know, I add to my list of songs to learn.
