The band is an initiative of Darling Music for All (DMA), a music education network founded 10 years ago by local residents.

D’s Choice was formed in 2016 with the support of our American friends Iris and Howard Burkat from New York, who are still a source of help and encouragement

The members are DMA students, tutors and other local musicians. One of the founding members was Earl Rhenier, a bass guitarist extraordinaire. He has recently emigrated to Australia with his family from where he is now monitoring the band’s success.

He has handed over to Graham Jacobs who carries on expanding the group’s repertoire and identifying more young Darling musicians who might be talented and ambitious enough to join.
