(Production Manager, Sound, Video and Lighting)
Dave Sibbald’s twin brother – Darrin Roll – was born some 38 years after Dave.
A Christmas present for his parents, he grew up, was educated, and still resides in his birth City: Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
He originally joined the band as a “Lampy” (not-very-technical term for light show operator).
After a change of personnel, Darrin took on the multiple roles of Production Manager, Sound Engineer, Lighting and Video Designer & Operator.
He has also been known to drive the van.
Darrin’s studies resulted in him attaining a Foundation Degree in Live Theatre Sound and Lighting and a BA Honours Degree In Music Enterprise.
In addition to his job with The Counterfeit Sixties, he also works for a North East theatres and venues.
As well as this Darrin runs his own company - Dazzling Sounds – where he hire large scale sound systems and full lighting rigs, he also does some DJing (apparently there is such a word) in packed pubs and Clubs around Newcastle.
In what little remains of his spare time he enjoys playing guitar, bass and keyboards, having previously played in his own band “Random” and in a Punk group!
Darrin loves the touring aspect of his work: travelling to venues in new Towns & Cities.
Acts he has worked for include: Billy Ocean, PP Arnold, Tinie Tempah, Mark Owen (Take That), Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden), Funeral For a Friend, Cover Drive, Little Mix, Wheatus, Royal Blood, Lucy Spraggan, Route 94, The Beat, The Dammed, Buzzcocks and Coronation Street’s Craig Charles (Funk and Soul Show).
The band thinks he’s worth his weight in Gold (a not inconsiderable sum).

About The Band
The Counterfeit Sixties was formed by four experienced musicians with the purpose of performing some of the greatest songs from the most creative period in pop music.
Each member of the group has a wealth of experience from playing in various combos, and working with some of the legends of the time.
As the band themselves grew up in the sixties, they are fully aware of the memories that can be evoked by a 60's show.
A full multimedia experience, utilising live action footage of many familiar sights and sounds from the period: from specially selected events, famous people, adverts, and - of course - the original artists themselves, the two-hour performance covers many aspects of the era.
With over thirty bands & singers covered, it is undoubtedly the most comprehensive 60's show around today.
Keeping the 60's 100% live!
