Darren has been awarded The National Tribute Award 2013 from the Agents association for his amazingly accurate tribute to Simply Reds Mick Hucknall.
Darren has been performing as Mick since 1991 after appearing on, and winning, his heat in Granada Television's "Stars In Their Eyes". Darrens vocal tribute was hailed as "exceptional" and is often mistaken for the real thing.
Darren has toured with his Simply Red tribute band “Wonderland” performing all over the UK at themed venues, holiday camps and the cabaret circuit as a solo act.
Performing live at many venues across the UK and abroad over the years has given him great experience working with every type of audience.
In 2013 Darren starred in Central Pier Blackpools' "Stars In Concert" for the summer season.
