Introduction: I am a local Phoenix, AZ musician that plays 50, 60, and early 70's rock and country cover music. I cover artists such as Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Bon Jovi, Jim Croce, CCR, Woody Guthrie, Arlo Guthrie, Rolling Stones, Beetles, Garth Brooks, Toby Keith, Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, Harry Chapin, Gordon Lightfoot, Otis Redding, Sam Cook, Righteous Bros., Hank Williams, Earnst Tubb, Chubby Checker, Don McLean, Kingston Trio, Tom Petty, Brad Paisley, Josh Turner, Randy Travis, Buck Owens, Steppin Wolf, The Who, The Doors, The Trogs, The Birds, Paul Simon Crosby, Stills, Nash, Bobby Dylan, and far more (I have some 800 or 900 songs in my lyric books). I began playing as a teenager at Legend City in Tempe, AZ on the Opera stage. And have been seen playing throughout the Valley ever since. I have played the past 12 years at Hob Nobs (soon to be Luana's in downtown Phoenix), Lake Pleasant (I organize the music for the Paddle Festival each year), Outlaws in Cave Creek, Jake's Corner, Landmark at the Creek in Christopher Creek, and Westin Kierland Resort just to name a few places. I am a solo musician that plays 12-string guitar and sing lead vocals. I also form a duo with a lap cajone drummer who also sings backup, Jeff Felske. Those requesting my services can hire either myself as a solo artist or the duo arrangement. Base fee for the duo arrangement is $200 per hour. I have several PA systems to fit different venues and different client needs I can negotiate prices to fit your budget needs. Travel outside of the Phoenix/Metro area may incur additional charges due to travel and lodging. I can provide references upon request.

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!

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.
