Derek was absolutely fabulous. He was timely, dressed perfectly for the DIY camp wedding, and provided excellent insight and help in preparations. The music was perfect for the occasion and we received many compliments from the guests. He added a very special element to the wedding. I give Derek my highest recommendation without hesitation.

Derik was wonderful. He arrived early, adjusted his start time to the needs of the audience, played beautifully, and was appreciated by all. This performance was for a Senior assisted Living group. I am also a wedding coordinator who plans on adding Derek to my list of contacts for Wedding performances as well.

From quote through the end of our event Derek was responsive and conveyed interest in making sure he understood what our desire was. The day of the event he was on time, setup and ready to go well in advance of our start time. I did not provide Derek with a complete specific song list but rather gave him a list of artists and representative songs. The songs that they chose to perform fit perfectly. Our guests commented on how much they liked the songs and performance. We were treated to a mix of instrumental and male and or female vocal. I would highly recommend Derek & would hire him again. Derek, thanks again for helping make our wedding dinner perfect.
