Darcy Stamp, thank you for playing the requested songs perfectly, especially the brides processional song (I watched the video where I walked down the aisle a hundred times because of the spectular music). He went the extra mile to make the song exactly what we wanted.
Darcy is highly recommended. 🤩

Darcy and Ace were excellent to work with! Not only were they both extremely punctual with all responses but Darcy also accommodated two song requests from us in advance that were special to us but not on his original song list so he had to learn them on top of it all. We had a cooler than expected day for the ceremony and Darcy still performed so so well for us and our guests through the ceremony and our cocktail hour. We loved the special touch that having live music gave to our outdoor mountain wedding - much more authentic and personal than just a playlist and speaker and well worth the cost. Thank you Darcy and Ace!!Sent on 22/05/2019

Live music at it’s best!
I have been lucky to know Darcy for well over 20 years. When it was time for me to get married, I knew there was no one else I would have rather had play me down the aisle for my wedding. I knew from experience how talented Darcy was as a musician, so it came as no surprise how amazing it was to have him play at our wedding. Darcy is not only incredibly talented but he is very professional and while he has a huge selection of popular songs to choose from already, he is also very flexible to learn new songs of your choosing. We ended up choosing four songs for the ceremony: Shallow by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, Perfect by Ed Sheeran, Is this Love by Bob Marley and Simply the Best by Tina Turner. Everything went off without a hitch and I had so many people rave about the ceremony music and asking me where I found Darcy!! If you’re looking for live music at your wedding, look no further as Darcy is truly one of a kind!!Sent on 15/11/2019
