Song list

Come fly with me
Iv’e got the world on a string
Fly me to the moon
I’ve got you under my skin
You make me feel so young
My way
NewYork NewYork
My kind of town
Night and Day
Let’s fall in love
Come dance with me
I believe in you
I could have danced all night
Cheek to cheek
Swinging on a star
Chicargo
The tender trap
It happened in Monterey
Luck be a lady
Guys & Dolls
Summer wind
All the Way
One for my baby
I get a kick out of you
That’s Life
Bad Bad Leroy row
Strangers in the night
Mack The Knife
For once in my life
Ring a ding ding
When your smiling
Nice and easy
Lady is a tramp
Witchcraft
Get me to the church on time
My kind of girl
Almost like being in love
Ain’t that a kickin the head
Beyond the sea
A nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square
O Look At Me Now
More
Clementine
Just in time
Volare
Anything goes
Let’s face the music and dance
Learn’in the blues
My baby just cares for me
Please be kind
It’s nice to go trav’ling
Malin Whoopee
I won’t dance
Isle of Capri
An evening in Roma
Should I
Pick yourself up
French foreign legion
Too marvellous for words
A foggy Day in London time
How do you do
Granada
All I need is the girl
At long last love
Love
It’s always you
The gal that got away
Can I steel a little love
Be careful it’s my heart
If I had you
I’ll be seeing you
Crazy little thing called love
Such a night
I only have eyes for you
Sway
Moondance
Putti on the Ritz
Do nothing till you hear from me
The More I See You
Call me irresponsible
All I do is dream of you
All of me
You’ve got a friend in me
In the wee small hours of the morning
ive got my love to keep me warm
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Santa claws is coming to town
Winter Wonderland
Holly jolly Christmas
Mistletoe and holly
Jingle bell rock
Here comes Santa claws
Let it snow
White Christmas
And many many more ..................
Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try my best to be flexible to make sure the event runs smoothly. If timings do change just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

“Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.”

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually arrive a hour before start time. When the PA system is all set up I will then play music to help set the atmosphere and tone for the event.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I have a tried and tested set list but I don’t mind tinkering with it . If I know it l will sing it you with pleasure .

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I certainly do .

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If there’s a special song that you would like me to sing and I don’t have it and don’t know it I would be happy to learn it but there may be charge.

I booked Darren for my mum’s 80th birthday party. Darren was extremely helpful and professional and the whole process of organising the song choice etc. was so easy. Darren has a lovely voice and his performance created a great atmosphere. Everyone was dancing and had a brilliant time. Thank you Darren for making this celebration so special for my mum. Suzanne

Southey C, 2 years ago

Had this guy jump in to support us on a big charity do and was over the moon with his performance. He is so natural in his style and movements when he is singing all the classics of Sinatra and the crooners of the era. He is incredibly smooth but maintains the warmth needed to enhance any evening. Rich Cartwright One Drop, two tone ska band

Barron S, 1 year ago

If you want a truly class evening of Sinatra and Sinatra-esque music then look no further. Daz Sinatra provides a show the likes I haven’t seen before within this style. His charisma and amazing vocal talent will provide your function with exactly what is needed; be it a corporate dinner, wedding or birthday, no guest will leave disappointed. Make it a night to remember.
