With over 30 years working in the music industry, Darren has built up quite an extensive track record.
From joining his first working band The Icemen to his solo & duo acoustic work, his reformed original band Wormwood who recently played 3 shows for the Semaphore music festival & two rock cover bands Crown Jewels plus Vertigo The U2 Experience , Darren is keeping himself busy.
Back in 1991 Darren formed a popular concept band Appetite For Destruction ‘The Guns N Roses Illusion’ & toured Australia wide, following this was a stripped back acoustic trio ‘Unwired’ who were at the time taking a refreshing approach to live music & opened for Billy Thorpe, The Angels & Chocolate Starfish to name a few.
Darren started international circuit work in 1998 & has worked throughout China, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Morocco & even a couple of shows in Kazakhstan.
Going freelance in Dubai Darren played with a string of bands in popular venues as well as solo & duo work.
A long time favourite at Hard Rock Cafe Dubai & The Chelsea Group of hotels Darren also played exclusively at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant in Atlantis the Palm on a weekly basis.
Stadium gigs like Dubai Rugby 7’s, Dubai Tennis Open, Dubai Golf, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix & many corporate functions including Emirates Pilots Grand Ball were also regulars.
