What we do

It's not about me.  My performances are not concerts as well they should not be.  This is about your celebration.  This is about my being simply a "vehicle" to a great celebration!  
I can start off with dinner music - smooth jazz or new age sounds; announce and perform any special songs (couple's first dance; father/daughter dance; honored guests); then KICK IT UP A NOTCH and PARTY DOWN - I will ROCK THE HOUSE and get all the guests DANCING THE NIGHT AWAY!  

Everyone will be talking about how much fun they had!

My set list includes a variety of tunes so that everyone on your guest list will feel the fun.  I perform a wide range of music from oldies to current music on today's radio.  A few of the artists I feature include The Temptations, Sam Cooke, Michael Jackson, Prince, Keith Urban, Black-Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum, and Adele to name a few.  I can also work with you to customize the playlist.  

I want to be sure you won't soon forget the excitement I can create. 

Who we are

Darryl E. Van Horne has been making music in the low country since the tender age of 3. In addition to his vocal talent, he has added nearly 25 instruments to his stable of masters over the years. He is at ease on the entire string family, brass, woodwinds, percussion, etc. At 15, Darryl worked under the wing of his father, the late Original Drifter's Founder, Bill Pinkney. It was there he learned the ins and outs of performing and playing on the professional level. He has had the opportunity to meet and work with performers like James Brown, Ray Charles, The Platters, The Coasters, and a host of other acts.

Darryl was hired at age 13 by mega-regional Radio Legend, Mark Robertson, to run tapes on Sunday mornings. He began to master recording techniques under a local audio-guru, Bob Jacobsen, in the radio station's production studio, sometimes until the sun came up the next day! He eventually landed in Los Angeles, CA, to record with David Foster. There he was transmogrified by the fast-paced studio techniques of masters like Humberto Gatica, Terry Christian, The Keane Brothers, and Master Programmer "Rev" Dave Boruff. Most recently, he has worked with Chiwetel Ejiofor and James Caviezel in the making of the movie, "Savannah."

He stays busy making music for commercials and other films as well. Darryl also performs live himself. He is an exceptional entertainer!
