Dario G is the name of a dance music trio from Crewe, Cheshire, England. Despite popular belief the group are not named after the manager of Crewe Alexandra, Dario Gradi but changed their name from Dario to Dario G after being threatened with legal action from an artist of the same name.
Co-founder Paul Spencer said they added the G as a last minute thing copying Kenny G as the group needed a quick new name and the similarity to Gradi was a complete co-incidence. Its founder members are Paul Spencer, Scott Rosser and Stephen Spencer (the Spencers are not related), although Paul Spencer is the only remaining member of the trio. Paul Spencer is a lifelong Stoke City supporter.
In 1997 they reached #2 on the UK Singles Chart with "Sunchyme", a song built around a sample of "Life In A Northern Town", a #15 hit for The Dream Academy in 1985, and peaked at #5 with the follow-up "Carnaval de Paris", relating to the 1998 football World Cup in France.
