This lady is wonderful. I booked Jayne for my Dads themed birthday party (1940’s) and I could have asked for a better entertainment team. Live singing and then disco/dj. Amazing! Couldn’t recommend Jayne and her hubby enough.

Jayne entertained our visitors at the Spirit of Wartime Sherwood event at Thoresby Park in May 2023. Singing live in the Courtyard, and playing recorded 1940s music between sets, she certainly added to the atmosphere of the event and her personality encouraged audience engagement, dancing and rapport. We would definitely invite her to return.

Jayne is a fantastic performer with great vocal range. We always book her to perform at Papplewick Pumping Station's 1940s event and she goes down a storm. Highly recommended!

Jayne was delightful, professional and very entertaining. Performing a variety of vintage songs at the Chairman of North Kesteven District Council's 'Afternoon Tea' following a Civic Service of Dedication. All the guests commented what a lovely event this was, made extra special by Jayne. The stage set backdrop and her outfits complimented the ambience of the repertoire of songs she delivered to allow guests to socialise and reflect. Thank you Jayne

Jayne performed at the Glossop Victorian and Heritage weekend on 28 May 2022. As one of the organisers I monitored the feedback from the 10,000 plus visitors to the event. Jayne was an absolute superb entertainer and went down a storm. Her voice, character, the atmosphere she creates just gets everyone foot tapping and dancing. Such a huge positive vibe felt by the crowd. Hundreds of posts were published saying how fantastic Jayne was. And as an organiser I can say, she is a professional, friendly, and personable performer that is very easy to work with. Jayne Darling will be first on our invitation list for our next event.
