I can tell you from personal experience Darius puts on one of the most fun and entertaining live shows you will ever see. It has been like that since the 90's heyday of Hootie and the Blowfish!

You will be able to catch that live experience when Darius brings the Starting Fries Tour to CMAC in Canandaigua in the Finger Lakes Region on Saturday, June 24th. Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, March 17th through Ticketmaster.
