Darion – Fire and Ice
Solo Career and Pat Benatar Tribute
Darion is a solo artist and the lead singer for the Pat Benatar Tribute Band- Fire & Ice, the only Pat Benatar tribute band from the Northeast that is endorsed by Pat.
Darion was born, raised, and lives in the New York City area. She began singing before she was able to walk, but didn’t pursue her career in music until 1990, when friends and family encouraged her to sing professionally. Darion released her first album in 2001, “See it Believe It.” Her second album was an EP titled, “House of Love,” released in 2003. One of her original songs, “Fly Away,” has become a song of hope, and adopted by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, an organization near and dear to her heart.
Meeting Pat Benatar
Darion performs some of her own music along with Pat Benatar’s in concert. She first met Pat and Neil Giraldo after one of Pat’s concerts, where Darion was surprised that they both knew of her and were impressed. Pat and Darion bonded immediately, and because of their common bond with Darion’s son, Joshua, and a friend of Pat’s having Cystic Fibrosis, they are still close friends to this day.
