Creating Timeless Memories with Jayne Darling Vintage Singer

Creating Timeless Memories with Jayne Darling Vintage Singer

I believe that every celebration deserves a touch of timeless elegance and unforgettable melodies. Recently, we had the pleasure of being part of a truly special occasion – Rodney’s 80th Birthday Party at the charming Lees Hall Golf Club. The experience was nothing short of magical, and the lovely feedback from Diana, our valued client, only adds to the joy we feel in sharing this story.

What sets our performances apart is not just the music but the personalised touch we bring to each event. Accompanied by my husband, Darren, who expertly DJ’ed between sets, we ensured the perfect blend of melodies, creating an ambience tailored to the needs of the guests. It’s wonderful to know that our attention to detail in managing the volume for dancing and conversation, as well as keeping the party schedule on track, contributed to a seamless and enjoyable experience for everyone.

The moment of joy when lighting the candles and singing happy birthday to Diana’s dad was truly special. It’s moments like these that make our work incredibly rewarding and memorable. The Hokey Pokey dance brought everyone together, adding an interactive element to the evening. I firmly believe that the success of an event lies in these small, magical touches that create lasting memories.

What is most lovely is Diana’s mention of our personal involvement in the celebration. We didn’t just perform and leave; we became a part of the dancing, chatting, and overall celebration.

Diana’s initial contact through our website and the easy process of filling out a form and making a deposit are reflective of our commitment to making the booking process hassle-free for our clients. Darren’s proactive communication to ensure the schedule aligns with the client’s expectations is a testament to our dedication to delivering a first-rate service.

Diana’s closing words, expressing her readiness to book us again without hesitation, validate our mission to provide not just excellent musical entertainment but an all-encompassing experience that exceeds expectations.

In conclusion, I want to express my sincere gratitude to Diana and her family for allowing us to be a part of Rodney’s milestone celebration. It was truly an honour, and we look forward to creating more timeless memories through our music.

Thank you for choosing us.

Jayne Darling ????✨

“We all absolutely loved having Jayne Darling sing and entertain for us at my Dads 80th Birthday Party at Lees Hall Golf Club.

Jayne was glamorous, witty and had us all captivated by her wonderful singing. Accompanied by her husband Darren who DJ’ed for us in-between Jaynes sets and read the room perfectly. Keeping the volume just right for dancing and talking, making sure the nights itinerary for the party was on time, prompting me (when needed), to sort the cake/buffet and keep the party in full swing. Having Jayne light the candles and sing happy birthday to my dad was a real joy.
Getting everyone involved in the Hokey Pokey, was also a lovely touch by Jayne, that we all thoroughly enjoyed. Jayne didn’t disappear after her singing, she joined in with the dancing and chatting. All these extra things made the evening exceptional for all our friends and family.
Jayne and Darren are both lovely people, down to earth, entertaining, professional, thoughtful, caring and generous.
Our memorable evening excelled because of their talents and they made my Dad feel like a star.
Initially I contacted Jayne via her web page (after my Dad had expressed how much he had enjoyed hearing Jayne sing at the 40’s day in Chesterfield).
I filled out a form and paid my deposit, giving a few details of how I wanted the evening to go. It was very easy.
Darren got in touch with me a couple of nights before the party to check the schedule was ok.
I would book them again without hesitation, extremely good value, a first rate team.
Thank you both soo much.
Diana, Sheffield.

Aug 21 / 22 Hay on Wye

Hay on Wye 1940s event will be back August 21 / 22 2021.




On Friday May 8th Nottingham based 1940s singer Jayne Darling is bringing the spirit of wartime to lockdown as the country celebrates 75 years since the end of World War Two in Europe.

As part of the VE75 Celebrations Jayne and several other 1940s singers and entertainers from across the UK will be providing a free online concert via Facebook from 11 am in the morning through to the finale at 9 pm with each act presenting a solo performance. 

Jayne commented: “The 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe was going to be a huge celebration for our Country; now with social distances measures in place all of the events and street parties that were due to take place have been cancelled.  We wanted to ensure that the people of Britain could continue to celebrate from their own homes and we will be bringing music, laughter and joy to mark the occasion albeit virtually rather than in person.”

Jayne, along with other 1940s specialists, were gearing up for their busiest year with 100s of events taking place throughout May and she had been booked to perform at Wollaton Park as well as commitments for the Royal British Legion and various festivals across the 3 day weekend.

Whilst street parties are not currently an option households across the UK are being encouraged to decorate their houses with flags and bunting, host their own 1940s style tea party, dress up, sing dance and celebrate.  Please remember, parties should only be held with members of the same family/ household that you are isolating with, please do not invite people over and break any social distancing government regulations.

The all day concert will be broadcast via Facebook and more information can be found by searching VE DAY 1940s PERFORMERS EXTRAVAGANZA! 

Jayne Darling will be performing via her Facebook page at 6 pm. 


Victory in Europe Day, generally known as VE Day, marks 8 May 1945, the day on which World War II in Europe ended.

  • In the United Kingdom on 8 May 1945, more than one million people celebrated in the streets to mark the end of the European part of the war. In London, crowds massed in Trafalgar Square and up the Mall to Buckingham Palace, where King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, accompanied by Prime Minister Winston Churchill, appeared on the balcony of the palace before the cheering crowds.
  • VE Day is celebrated and remembered by people around Britain each year. The 70th anniversary of VE Day in 2015 was marked with a series of events across the UK. There were three days of commemorations including parades, street parties, a service of thanksgiving and a concert in central London.
  • At 3pm on 8 May, VE Day, the nation will be asked to raise a glass to toast the heroes of World War II, wherever they are. Please make time during your party join in with the rest of the nation for this National Toast.
