Gilly Darbey and Vikki Clayton – Divas 

Just imagine a musical fusion of Ab Fab, Miss Piggy and the Topp Twins  and you've got a pretty accurate ideas of what these two are all about. Music ranging from folk,country, blues and self penned these ladies can deliver.

“We take our music very seriously but we love to have fun too”

Both are famed for their beautiful voices and between them play several instruments. Not to be taken lightly these girls have impeccable pedigrees when it comes to musical careers. Between them and sometimes together they've worked with Van Morrison, Richard Thompson, John Martyn, Fairport Convention, Joan Armatrading, Ralph Mctell (blah blah -  the list is endless ) and they are too modest (old) to remember them all – Needless to say highly respected by their peers

They've toured the world, played major festivals and events (did ya spot Gilly at Live Aid?)  and armed with nothing but their voices, charm and prosecco they thrill audiences  everywhere. Both of them born in the UK but now happily living in New Zealand. Here are just some of their favourite reviews

“I want to be like them when I grow up”  from an admiring young female musician (anonymous) 

“They go on too long, they laugh too loud, they will drink you out of house and home and probably steal your horses. Lock

up your sons. BUT they have beautiful voices and you will undoubtedly love them”  Tony Fuel (Paekakariki) 

“They brought the house down with their voices, music,  fun and laughter”  The Observer

 “Listening to them made me cry-- in a good way. Go see them if you can “ Sydney Herald

“Soft and peachy”   The Guardian 

“Slightly bonkers but jeez they can make music”  Mojo 

“Superb voices and musicianship with a great sense of fun included”  Evening Standard

 “Damn, we were good tonight”  Vikki and Gilly
