Jazz Band Review
"A wonderful night, some important guests, an impressive location, but it was The Darcy Gents' music to deliver the true magic touch. John and his band played for us a great collection of Jazz music giving an extra flavour to an already special evening. A perfect harmony of notes, a well balanced band and a very elegant style. I would strongly recommend The Darcy Gents and I will be looking forward to working with him in the near future."
