“Not a dry eye in the house and the audience sang along throughout the performance, what a trip down memory lane for this packed out show”.


John Roberts, Wicksteed Park Pavillion


“Just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to The Darlings for a wonderful show at the Academy Theatre last night. The quality of vocals deserve praise of the highest order. It was such a pleasure to hear songs like that sung the way they were intended to be. I hope we get to see you all here again in the future. To coin a phrase most appropriate, I'm sure ‘We'll Meet Again’”.

Matt Warren, Academy Theatre (Barnsley)


"The Royal British Legion's Festival of Remembrance in Devon is a well established and popular event that combines ceremony, pageantry, reflection, remembrance and   entertainment in a 180 minute stage performance.  This year's entertainment witnessed a  fantastic elevation of tempo in the form of the gorgeous D Day Darlings, who, very much in keeping with the evening's theme  re-lived the atmosphere of wartime Britain, in the brightest of ways. Their songs, costumes, 'marching' and professionalism were second to none, and 'they made the show', with young and old alike. We look forward to the Darlings'  return with relish".


P J Pentreath, RBL Devon County Manager


“The D-Day Darlings performed at the Dartmouth Apprentice on 4th June 2011 and, with much anticipation, they arrived in a breeze of beauty, confidence and enormous professional attitude.  They promptly set up their equipment providing us with a rehearsal which left us breathless.


The D-Day Darlings are truly that - Darlings; three beautiful and talented singers who amazed our dinner guests with their hugely polished performance and professional attitude.  Even after many songs and with a long drive ahead of them they were more than happy to pose for photographs, sign posters and generally chat with many.


I hope that I can find a reason soon for them to come back and perform at the Dartmouth Apprentice where I know many will once again flock to see them.”


Nina Stanesby, Dartmouth Apprentice


The D-Day Darlings bridge the generation gap, entrancing young and old alike with their slick, sassy performances. Not only do they sound amazing, they look it too. Added to that, they really are darlings -  real little troopers who sang outside for our 90th Anniversary celebrations in the pouring rain without any complaints . They then coped with a long wait in fairly uncomfortable conditions before performing again for an evening dance where they wowed the audience all over again. No moaning or complaining, just a "can do " attitude with smiles on their faces.


 I can't wait for the next opportunity to book them again!”


Gillian Harrison, RBL County Secretary


“2012 has been a very significant year for the National Service (Royal Air Force) Association which celebrates its l0th anniversary since its formation, holding an appropriate event at the R.A.F. Museum, Cosford in Shropshire on Sunday 20th May. It was, therefore, decided to introduce some light entertainment for the occasion in the form of The D-Day Darlings.  


The D-Day Darlings, a trio of pretty ladies who sing songs from the 1940s with hairstyles and make-up appropriate to the period.  They were provided with suitable space in the museum's no. 1 hangar, giving two performances of around 25 minutes each, with one session dressed in RAF uniforms and the other session in American uniforms. Their singing style is much on the lines of the American Andrews Sisters from many years ago, with some good close harmony sections and some very nimble footwork where necessary in short dance routines;  very much a team effort.  Both performances drew large crowds of onlookers and much applause when finished as well as interest in the CDs they had on sale.  I’m aware they have an interest in the Royal British Legion.  I am sure I can speak for all those present when I say it was excellent entertainment and could easily have enjoyed much more of the same.  An excellent decision to hire them.”

“Black Country Living Museum hosted it's very first '1940's Evening Event on Saturday 21 July and I contacted The D-Day Darlings to come along and entertain our visitors... And boy did they entertain them! They were the most professional, friendly and polished group I have worked with. Our visitors took them to their hearts straight away after their first performance! The show was excellent, and I can highly recommend their backing screen as an added extra as it provides a wonderful backdrop. The songs were performed with passion and feeling, and gave that authentic 40s sound that a lot of groups never seem to able to recreate. So pleased with The 'Darlings', I booked them on the spot for next year’s event. If you are looking to book quality... Go Darlings!”

“This show brings the spirit of the wartime era alive and recreates the music and memories that kept Britain smiling through her darkest days”.
