About
Darryl Armistead provides a Solo Piano and Vocal show that features a mix of instrumentals and vocals with a repertoire of over three hundred songs and covering many genres, such as standards, oldies, jazz, pop, rock, rhythm and blues, and blues. Darryl accompanies all selections on either piano or guitar, and shows can be tailored to suit any occasion from casual listening to dancing.

When you listen to the audio clips, you will not believe your ears. However, this is the sound that is delivered show after show. Shows are performed using state-of-the-art Bose sound systems, where the listening experience is full and rich without ever being over-powering. Audiences are able to enjoy both the music and their conversations. Darryl Armistead is the perfect alternative for occasions where a full band sound is desired but not practical.

One word to sum up Darryl - FABULOUS! Everyone who attended the birthday party loved him - from the young to the old! The music he played did not cater to one age group - all ages enjoyed. His talent surpassed anything we could expect. Many people in attendance called the next day to let us know how much he added to the party. It was a smaller venue in a restaurant and the volume was just what was needed - not too loud to avoid talking, but loud enough to appreciate his stupendous voice. Several people asked for his contact info to book him for their next event. Need a GREAT musical addition to your next party? BOOK DARRYL - you will NOT be disappointed!

Darryl was the BEST! I had warned him that this was for a corporate networking event and he was perfect to play the right music at the right level! I had guests coming up to me asking who he was because he was so great! Kept it upbeat and fun. He is very talented, professional, and extremely easy to work with! I would easily book him over and over again. Thank you, Darryl!

I Hired Mr. Armistead for my mother's 75th birthday party at an elegant downtown Chicago restaurant. Mr. Armisted arrived on time to set up before my guest and he sang all the songs requested of him to play. Mr. Armistead is an overall great performer. All of my 75 guests loved him and stated what a great time they had. Five stars to Mr. Armistead.

Darryl was amusing for our annual Senior Fall Luncheon. The senior citizens in attendance had a wonderful time listening to him play and got up to dance. He also was letting them request songs. They loved that. He is a great find!

Honestly, I couldn't ask for a better yet friendlier person to play music and sing. Although we hired a DJ as well, and Mr Daryl had to move his heavy set after he set up everything (our fault for not informing him before) he was so cool about it and we loved that he joined us. PS. He only eats Organic Vegan foods, I wish I knew earlier in order to provide him a proper meal, but if you decide to hire him and including him to eat dinner, remember he is VEGAN, so provide vegan food. :-) I will definitely hire him again. Friendly, lovely and beautiful person. Thank you for joining us at our little wedding, we enjoyed your company very much.
