DJ & HOST
From an early age, Mr D’Arcy has had a passion for music. He was educated, via his parents, in the delights of Rock & Roll and Pop from the 50's and 60’s. He was brought up with the camp tunes of 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 stuff!
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!
Mr D'Arcy started DJing back in the mid 90’s, first with vinyl, cassette tape, CD and finally MP3. The equipment and formats may have change but the music certainly hasn’t. He’s worked at various venues in Bristol and indeed around the UK including Brighton, Manchester, Leeds and London.
He now specialises in happy music, be that as the regular DJ at the Bristol Bear Bar with his Euphoria nights, in Manchester for his now legendary Eurovision event, Manchester Calling and with new events such as Eurphoria 80's, a dedicated night to the 1980's.
As a DJ, he’s worked alongside the likes of Hazell Dean, Nicki French, Hannah Jones and Angie Brown. As well as most of the leading UK Drag Queens and a bunch of Strippers… enough said really.
Notable recent gigs include DJing at the London Eurovision Party, Boom-Bang-A-Bang and the Manchester Eurovision Party in Manchester and at the Tantra4GayMen Festival in Glastonbury.
He's also a successful Event Manager and looks after an amazing young singer and entertainer called Jon Canem, click ABOUT for more!.
Mr D'Arcy is a plug and play DJ, and is happy to travel the UK & Ireland and indeed Europe. If you have a party event coming up, he's the ideal guy to make your guests feel happy and go home all warm and contented.
