About Darren Hancock
From an early age, Darren Hancock started to make music a part of his life, teaching himself to play guitar and sing, quickly realizing that Country music was his home. His first band played the Southwestern Ontario circuit heavily for years, appearing on local cable shows, festivals, all while rotating the local Honky Tonks and receiving two Ontario Country Music Association (OCMA) nominations for "Bar Band of the Year". Darren continued to progress his music as lead singer and lead guitarist in his second band venture, and in a brief 5-year span helped the band win the "Rising Country Superstar" contest, become the opening act for recording artists such as Julian Austin and Doc Walker, and went on to win an Ontario Country Music Award for "Club Artist of the Year".
The Darren Hancock Band appears regularly in popular venues throughout Soutwestern Ontario, has been the opening act for top Canadian Country artists like Dean Brody, Kira Isabella, Leah Daniels, and The Road Hammers, while gaining new fans and friends along the way. After performing 78 shows in 2019, The DH Band shows no sign of slowing down in 2020...!! Be sure to catch a show at a venue near you..!!
