We found Jayne on lineand we were delighted. Jayne sang at a Sunday lunch to celebrate a 90th birthday. There were nearly 60 of us and many hadn’t seen each other for a while so there was a mixture of chatting and listening. Jayne was brilliant, not too loud-not too quiet. She was a very special addition to a lovely day. Thank you Jayne and Darren!
We were delighted to have the lovely Jayne as our entertainer for our very special 45th (Sapphire) Wedding Anniversary party. Her great voice and wonderful repertoire really helped to make the evening very special – right down to her gorgeous blue gowns to match our blue-themed evening! Jayne is a super person and worked hard to enhance the atmosphere, with a wonderful song list. She was the icing on our cake! Thank you so much xx.
Hi Jayne, Just want to say a huge thank you for Wednesday evening from the social club here at Carroll Gardens. I know several people thanked you on the night but many more have stopped me over the last couple of days to say how much they enjoyed it, so THANK YOU again.Hopefully we will be able to book you again soon.
You have such an amazing voice. When I watched your video on Facebook singing ‘Requiem for a Soldier’ I wept. You really touched my heart with it.
Thank you so much for the show you did for our dad’s 90th birthday. He and the other residents thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. We’re grateful that you did your best to accommodate Mike’s song requests at such short notice.
Dad is still talking about you, always with a smile – he has very fond memories of the afternoon and couldn’t have wished for a better birthday present. Thanks again, Jayne.
I have to thank you (Jayne Darling), and your band for a fantastic performance which made the night so memorable. The comments and feedback from the guests and Mayor are nothing short of brilliant and we will be writing to you shortly.
Dear Jayne, we both wanted to say a big THANK-YOU for your amazing performance at our wedding. It was a perfect day and you made it so special, both during the ceremony and afterwards. We can’t thank you enough. We had so many lovely comments about your performance and it will forever hold special memories for us.
It was lovely to see you today at Batley Vintage Day – Batley just loved you !.
Hi Jayne you were amazing at the Hospice Choir Competition tonight, thank you for all you do for us.
We had the pleasure of listening to you today at the Rufford 1940s event – amazing, trying to find you on you tube!
Hi Jayne, just to thank-you for making our mom and dads anniversary so special. We all thoroughly enjoyed your performance and also for involving the children. I shall certainly recommend you.
Hi Jayne, thanks for giving us a great evening’s entertainment. We hope to see you again in the future.
We were privileged to see you perform at Wimpole Hall’s 1940 weekend and would like to thank you for inviting our daughter, Maisie, onto the stage to sing “Let it go” with you. She absolutely loved it and I’m so glad I recorded it on my phone for her to watch back. Thank you again for making a little girl very happy and her parents very proud.
Thank you so much for attending the Saturday Night Dance as part of the Leyburn 1940s weekend – I thought you were great and certainly went down very well with the people attending the dance.
I just wanted to thank you for Friday. I can’t find the words to express just how wonderful I thought you were. You treated everybody with such respect and dignity and you can guess that most of those guys have suffered such discrimination in their lives. I thought the atmosphere you created was absolutely wonderful and folk just couldn’t get over how wonderful the evening was.
Thank-you so much for visiting us in Broadmayne, everyone thought you were wonderful!
Jayne kindly offered to sing at our WW1 commemoration event at The Treetops Hospice Shop on Bramcote Lane, Wollaton. She has a lovely voice and everyone thought she was fantastic… she really was every ones Darling .Everyone wants to know when she’s coming back!
Hi Jayne, A very big thank you for putting on such wonderful entertainment this afternoon. You sang so beautifully and everyone was delighted to listen to your amazing repertoire of songs. It brought back many happy memories for Joyce and even the younger ones there were singing along as if they had known the songs for years. You made the day very special. Hope to hear you sing again soon!Love and best wishes.
I just wanted to say such a huge thankyou for your brilliant performance in Painswick on Saturday evening! Marion (my Gran) had a lovely evening, really memorable- and I know for a fact that everyone enjoyed it- you set the tone perfectly- so thank you.
Broxtowe Borough Council wouldn’t hesitate in asking Jayne back for future events.
Miss Jayne Darling performed for us recently at one of our Business Network Social events, with over one hundred business professionals present at the Galleries of Justice Museum, Jayne’s music welcomed guests upon arrival and from start to finish was a flawless and extremely entertaining set, Jayne is very professional and really does look the part in her vintage outfits and styling, I would highly recommend her and cannot wait to hear her again!
Jayne Darling recently sang at a vintage fair which was organised by a local charity. Her voice was beautiful, her style was perfect for the occasion and her smile was infectious. She entertained the crowds for the majority of the day with a wide range of material. Versatile and vivacious, Jayne was one of the highlights of the day.
Jayne sang at a vintage burlesque event that I organised. She was a fantastic success. All the guests I spoke to raved about her beautiful voice. She was a pleasure to work with. Professional, enthusiastic and excellent value for money she added some extra class and sparkle to the event.
