+ support from the fantastic Run Devil Run and special guest Mark Lamarr
Britain’s best loved doo-wop band play their first live gig for over two years !
Darts, who had a string of chart hits in the late 70s and early 80s including Daddy Cool/The Girl Can’t Help It, Come Back My Love, Boy From New York City, It’s Raining and Duke of Earl are a nine-strong, energetic doo-wop group whose brand of visual excitement and tight harmonies earn them rave reviews wherever they play. Their unique style, which combines first-rate musicianship and intricate vocal acrobatics, creates a larger-than-life stage show where the humour they inject into their live performance plays a large part in their appeal. Whilst they appear not to take themselves too seriously, it is obvious to everyone who sees them that they are all extremely capable and talented musicians.
This is definitely the real deal, as all nine current band members featured in Darts’ line-up during their ‘golden’ years ………………. Big Den Hegarty, Rita Ray, Griff Fender, Pikey Butler, Horatio Hornblower, Jimmy ’the Nit’ Compton, Duncan Kerr, Nos Gotheridge and Thump Thomson.
Darts are a fantastic live band who still get rave reviews wherever and whenever they perform and this will be a night definitely not to be missed.
