From an early age, Mr D’Arcy had a passion for music. Influenced by his parents music taste, he was weened on such delights like Rock & Roll from the 50’s, Swinging Pop from the 60’s, camp tunes from the 70’s and later lapped up the party sounds of the 80’s.
He would listen to his Mother’s native Maltese music, Greek, Spanish, French and Italian too, alongside his Father’s love of an Irish ditty. A true European even before it became fashionable! Then, he came across his Mother’s 'Eurovision Greatest Hits' album, circa 1969, with such gems as Volare, Boom-Bang-A-Bang and Puppet on a String. So, you can’t argue with us when you we say the man knows his music!
He adores music with a deep passion, as it makes him happy and let’s face it, especially recently, we all need a bit of happiness in our lives!
He started DJing back in the mid 90’s working at many venues across his home city of Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, as well as big events in Manchester and London. As a DJ, he’s worked alongside many popular artists, as well as leading UK Drag Queens and a bunch of Strippers… enough said about the latter the better really.
Notable recent gigs include DJing at the London Eurovision Party, Boom-Bang-A-Bang in Manchester, Eurobash Warm Up in Leeds and the Tantra4GayMen Festival in Glastonbury. He also co-produced the Manchester Eurovision Party in 2019, bringing the likes of SuRie (UK entry 2018) and Belle & The Devotions (UK 1994) to a massive audience.
His successful Eurovision event UK Calling has been welcomed in Brighton, Bristol and eventually became Manchester Calling, finding it's true home at Bar Pop on Canal Street. He also hosts Euphoria, a busy night at the Bristol Bear Bar every third Saturday of the month.
In 2017 he had an epiphany and decided to celebrate his enjoyment of happy music and start his own business, Mr D’Arcy Entertains. 2021 brings brand new events, such as Club 80 with Jon Canem, and a new cabaret based Eurovision event.
Mr D'Arcy uplifts any events large or small... he has had major success across the UK and knows how to get party started. You can book him on his own or with MDE's main singer, Jon Canem.
