The Kelly Foundation “Swindon’s Mental Health Support Charity”

"Darren played the first half for us at our recent charity concert in Christchurch in Swindon's Old Town. In front of a captivated audience of 400, he went through a repertoire of some of the finest guitar riffs ever written. The haunting ‘Cavatina’ was followed by a fabulous rendition of ‘Losing My Religion’, music from the Eagles and two brilliant tracks from Dire Straits which would have made Mark Knopfler proud then an especially clinical version of Harrison’s ‘My Guitar Gently Weeps’. The finale was a masterclass in guitar skills as he covered Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb’ ending with a final flourish at the church altar! The Vicar was in the audience and seem to enjoy this along with the very appreciative crowd. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Darren for guitar gigs anywhere in the future." - John Stooke


"Darren, I need to pen this review following the show you put on for us on Sat. From the first few chords they were on the dance floor and were reluctant to leave. ALL my family and friends commented on how good you really are saying that was the best night they have enjoyed for a very long time. So much so, my street cred has rocketed through the roof and believe me I’m gonna milk it for as long as I can Once again Darren thank you for a fantastic night and KEEP ON ROCKIN " - Doug Weeks


"We booked Darren for our dad’s 80th birthday party and he was fantastic. It was a family do, so ages ranged from teens to folks in their 80’s and all had a great time and loved the music. We’ve booked him again for a birthday in the summer - can’t wait" - Gail Meachen


"Darren is an amazing performer who gets the crowd up and dancing. Best guitarist around. Well worth Watching!"

The Swindon Rock Choir at the Wyvern Theatre (22/07/18)

"One of the stand out moments was Swindon's own rock guitarist Darren Hunt, no stranger to the horrors of losing someone dear, as his musician dad, Gerry Hunt, lost his battle to the deadly disease. Darren played and sang Prince's Purple Rain, with backing from the choir. The number ended with the whole auditorium, choir and audience, doing the festival hands-in-the-air sway to the melody."
