Al and Linda Lynn’s Wedding – The Railway Inn Acklington

“The fact that our guests are STILL talking about ‘the best wedding evening reception ever..’, is mainly due to the exceptional voice, performance and songs courtesy of a certain Mr Darren Lewis.

We booked Darren on a friend’s recommendation and we were not disappointed.  He’s got a fantastic back-catalogue of music from swing to pop, old and current tunes, and even songs by request which are all performed with consummate professionalism and a cheeky smile! Everyone had an absolutely fantastic time, the venue was jumping and even Gran was on the floor in her slippers grooving to the tunes, and we couldn’t have wished for anything better.

Forget about the disco, and any thoughts of cheesy club-land singers.  This man is superb and was a major contributor to the success of our wedding.  For that, we’ll always be grateful.  Book him NOW!!”

Pam and John Gray’s Wedding at Alnwick Castle          

“I would highly recommend Darren to perform at any event, be it a wedding or birthday party or any other celebration. 

We first met Darren when he was performing at The Fleece Inn in Alnwick and we thought that he would be amazing at our wedding after party- he was!!! Within seconds of him starting to sing the dance floor was full.  He performed three almost hour long sets during the night and was very well received by old and young –  he was much better than the disco. The songs he sang appealed to all ages and a lot of people asked us after the wedding who our singer was and how to get in touch with him.

If you want your ‘party’ to be a success please don’t hesitate to contact Darren”

 

Wendy Coles of Wendy Coles Bridal

“For a long time I kept hearing about Darren Lewis from various brides and they were all saying how good he was. I even went to wedding fairs and, again, all I could hear was the name of this man being bantered around.

Last year I decided to visit my local pub for New Year as I didn’t want to drive far and getting taxis can be such a pain. So off my husband and I went looking forward to a night’s entertainment .  On arrival I could clearly see that there was going to be a singer on, but we’ve seen so many of them, good and bad. Well, this young man came on and straight away he had our attention.

The music choice was varied to suit most people’s tastes, but the sheer talent was unbelievable: someone who could sing well with a lovely tone and communicate with the audience. What more could we ask on New Year’s Eve?
Once this young man had done the first half of his show, I thought I would congratulate him on how good he really is: hey everyone wants to hear a compliment from time to time. Well, on asking his name I was informed it was only the Darren Lewis that I had heard so many good reports of.

I can personally recommend that if anybody wants to book live entertainment for whatever kind of event that Darren Lewis would not disappoint, but then you’ll just to book him and prepare for a real treat to your ears.
Well, anyway, I am looking forward to New Year’s Eve this year as Darren is going to be entertaining me again at my local.”

Without doubt, Darren is “the ultimate professional”.

We have had the pleasure of working with Darren for around 4 years now. We host a variety of charity events throughout the year and can always rely upon Darren to give our guests a sparkling evening of entertainment. He is versatile, passionate and as one of our recent lady guests admitted…….. “very easy on the eye”!

In the past, we have even burdened him requests at short notice to “adopt” new songs amongst his very considerable (and incredibly diverse) repertoire to fit with the ambience of our evening. Nothing is too much trouble – and all performed immaculately and professionally. Our staff have even “performed” with him by Makaton signing to some of our chosen songs – “My girl” will go down in Toby Henderson Trust history, as will Shakin’ Stevens’s Merry Christmas Everyone” with the whole of the Grandstand Suite, Gosforth Park Marriott, on their feet and joining in!

If you want to book a professional, musically accomplished and thoroughly good guy to make your event or wedding special……………. then my advice is……………..look no further. By clicking on this website you have just found your man.

“Hi Darren.  Thank you so much for entertaining us at our wedding.  You were amazing from start to finish.  You were also a life-saver getting me my song to walk down the aisle in the church.  It was great that you were there to greet all of the guests as they arrived and you certainly had them all dancing all night.  You are highly talented and a true professional!  You made our wedding reception perfect.  Thank you.”

 

Trevor and Mary Jerdan, Private party, White Swan Alnwick

“We came across Darren after his tremendous performance in Sister Act.  Highly recommended.  My wife and I felt that there was no better person to help us celebrate our 35 year wedding anniversary.  With a party of 80 guests, aged 8 to 80, and from across the globe, Darren did a fantastic job in covering genres from all eras and ensuring that everyone was up on their feet for the night.

A huge thank you for your entertaining, up beat and engaging performance.  We need another excuse for a party!”Attachment-1

Katy and John Murray’s Wedding, Riverside Lodge Morpeth

“On Saturday June 24th 2017, two musical events took place at opposite ends of the country.  At around 8 o’clock the legendary Foo Fighters took to the main stage  in a field in Cornwall and set about producing the finest evenings entertainment in front of a live audience of thousands and millions more on global TV.

They were wasting their time……

At the same time up in mid-Northumberland a REAL entertainer climbed on stage at ThPhoto 10154956468908138e Riverside Lodge to begin the first of his two sets to celebrate the wedding of Katy and John Murray.  Over the course of the next 2 hours or so he delivered a stunning, beautifully crafted, passionately delivered, word-perfect display of musical excellence which had the assembled masses enthralled and the dance floor full.

Move over Glastonbury, time to pack up your tents, DARREN LEWIS just blew you away!

Many, many thanks for making it a night to remember.
