Musicians for Musicians! Darla’s trio helped set the perfect ‘tone’ for our rehearsal dinner & post dinner celebration. Extremely professional, prompt and musical! The guest list included many past members of the famed Princeton acapella groups, Rochester Philharmonic, Huntsville Symphony, New York based freelance musicians and at least one famous Met Opera soprano. ALL present loved & enjoyed their music! Highly recommend! They played for of some of the most trained ears and talent around. Definitely, they are musicians for musicians & musicians at heart! Thank you, Darla & Rich

Darla Rich Jazz provided the perfect music for my event. I hired Darla Rich jazz as a quartet for my father’s retirement party at a cozy restaurant. From start to finish my experience with Darla and Rich was wonderful. They were very professional, kind and accommodating. Further, their music was the perfect accompaniment to my father’s retirement dinner. Everyone loved them and throughout the course of the night we noticed that patrons of the restaurant were peeking in our private room to listen to the music. Darla and Rich helped make the night a great success and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to hire a jazz trio or quartet for their event.

PPL was so happy we could host “It’s All Jazz: From Bop to Pop”. It was a perfect program selection for the Princeton community. The crowd on Hinds Plaza was a good size and many people commented how much they enjoyed the outdoor concert. We will certainly keep Darla Rich in mind during future program planning.

After we heard Darla Rich at a friend’s wedding, we hired them in their trio configuration w/sax for our daughter’s intimate wedding at a lovely restaurant. They were perfect for the setting, the day and the mood with their smooth, infectious sound of standards and bossa nova, and what great personalities, too. I love this band and so did all of our guests. We got many compliments on the choice of music - even the restaurant staff told us they loved Darla Rich. Many thanks to the band for helping to make this day so wonderful for my daughter and guests and for being so helpful during the booking!

Just taking this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU for providing that extra special touch at Joe and Jorge’s Retirement and Graduation Cocktail Party at Setimo Cielo on June 30. Personally, I loved your music and sound. I can also say that I heard many similar comments as well. We appreciate your helping us out on such short notice. Thanks again. Look forward to seeing and hearing you in the future.

We hired Darla Rich for a family holiday party and they were absolutely fantastic! Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed them and how much it added to the festive party! We even gave them a very obscure holiday song to learn and perform and they did so without hesitation! High class, high talent and just great people to work with. Highly recommend!!!!

Have heard the Darla Rich Trio/Quartet play several times at a restaurant in Cranbury. My family and I thoroughly enjoy hearing these skilled musicians playing great jazz! It’s a real treat to eat dinner locally and have such high quality entertainment without having to drive to a big city and spend a fortune.

It was my father-in-law’s 90th birthday and he wanted a black tie event with dance music. I knew of Darla Rich from other events and they were my first choice. Their music and personality made the evening most memorable for everyone.

Darla and Rich Tarpinian have been to Brandywine Senior Living at Governor’s Crossing many times and they never disappoint! Their music is fantastic and it is a pleasure to work with such professionals. They are extremely accommodating. During our family events, they play a variety of music pleasing all of our guests, no matter what their age is. I highly recommend Darla and Rich for any event!
