Deron provided all of the music for our wedding. It was perfect, he did a wonderful job! He was very willing to learn a song he never played to make our day even more special.

Deron, Your amazing voice and song selections helped create the most picture perfect wedding weekend we could have ever asked for! I can't thank you enough for making our kickoff party at Slider's so much fun and even more so how unbelievably special you made our ceremony the next day. Your song suggestions for our processional could not have fit more perfectly! I am truly grateful and we are so glad you were a part of our amazing celebration!

We hired Deron for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour a few weekends ago. He was easy to work with and fairly priced. My husband surprised me by playing a song for me in front of everyone during dinner... Deron helped him coordinate the surprise and even let him borrow his guitar! It took me a little while to book a musician (I can be a bit of a music snob at times), but I am definitely glad we went with Deron!

Hiring Deron was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! We continue to hear outstanding praise from our guests about his music. He added so much to both our ceremony and reception and set the tone for our night. He was so easy to work with, including making special arrangements to deal with a difficult venue. He was willing to learn songs for us and take requests for the night. My only regret is that I wasn't able to listen to him with the guests as I got ready and during the cocktail hour!

Deron performed at our rehearsal dinner, beach ceremony, and cocktail hour. He was wonderful and amazing! So many of our guests complimented us on his musical skills. Deron was open to playing any song we requested, as well as learned songs we wanted particularly played at our ceremony. Deron is highly recommended! We can't wait to catch him playing around town soon!

Deron is a masterful guitar player and definitely knows how to keep the celebratory mood going and the guests happy. His classical renditions of the wedding favorites were absolutely perfect, and both my wife and I couldn't have been happier. Then, he made a seamless transition to some easy listening and contemporary jazz that really had our guests enjoying the cocktail hour. I couldn't tell you how many compliments we had on his playing and I believe at least a few of our guests walked away with some of his contact information to look him up for hire in the future. He was easy to get along with and my wife and I are convinced that keeping an open line of communication with him for a good amount of time before the wedding was very helpful. As I mentioned to him on the big day, it didn't feel like we had just a vendor playing for us, but a true friend.

I recommend not confining him to a playlist, but rather something similar to what we did whereas we shared a few songs with Deron for him to get a feel for what we liked musically, and he picked the playlist. The music he played was absolutely perfect and way better than anything we had in mind. Let the Artist work and by all means, trust him! He truly is a professional.

Deron was the musician for our wedding this September. I couldn't have imagined the music at our ceremony any other way! Throughout the entire process, even leading up to the wedding, Deron constantly followed up. He made sure that the music we selected was exactly what we wanted and shared great advice for the day of. Out of all of the vendors that I selected for this special day, I felt sincerely confident that Deron was someone that had everything under control. His professionalism and constant communication helped put us at ease as we approached the big day!

Deron did an incredible job at our wedding. He did our ceremony music and cocktail hour himself, and brought a full band for our reception. Deron was very easy to communicate with, always responded quickly to my e-mails and questions, and was totally receptive to my style and taste in music. I told him my budget, and he was straightforward with what he would be able to do within it (which was more than I expected!), and I feel like we got more than our money's worth. He put together an incredible band that did an amazing job at creating the mood I had in mind. I sent Deron a list of songs and artists my husband and I like to give him an idea of the style we were looking for, and they nailed it. Deron attended our walk-through ahead of time to make sure he and the wedding planner were on the same page which was very helpful on the day of the wedding. It actually ended up raining on our wedding day (the ceremony and reception were both outdoors under a tent) and while this certainly complicated things, Deron and the band handled it well. I would highly recommend him.

Deron was lead musician for our acoustic ceremony and wedding reception band. He was active in excellent planning recommendations and worked with me on tweaking our style into our wedding. His beautiful voice and acoustic guitars made our ceremony perfection, the 3 man band (2 vocal/guitars, 1 drummer) rocked out at our reception. Deron 'djd" our song choices on my ipod for our first dances d/t our song selections.

Fantastic!!! Really enjoyed listening to him play while I was upstairs getting ready with my girls! I had multiple guests comment on how great he was. During the planning process I mentioned that I didn't want any traditional ceremony music- Deron then gave me suggestions and helped us make our wedding unique to us!

Deron really made my dream wedding come true! He learned every song I asked of him and had really great suggestions, which I used all of them. He was very quick with responses and never made me feel uncomfortable for any of the requests I made or the number of times I emailed him. I received tons of compliments from my wedding guests and will never forget how wonderful he truly made our day!

I had a small wedding on Amelia Island in FL. My fiance and I were looking for some nice music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I found some great reviews of Deron online so we decided to give him a shot. What a surprise! He exceeded our expectations. He was so easy to work with, always responded quickly to our emails and calls, and helped make our budget work. Due to weather, we made a few last minute changes, and he was very helpful and flexible. The music he provided was perfect for our wedding. He was so pleasant to work with, and music was wonderful!! Such a talent. I highly recommending using him for your event.

Deron was a great guitarist and vocalist for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We went to a few of his performances at various venues prior to booking him, and loved what he had to offer. He was very easy to get in touch with and was very flexible with our music choices. He will not disappoint.

Deron did an amazing job w/ the ceremony music. I contacted him only a few weeks before my wedding and I'm so glad he was available to perform. He was always quick to respond to emails and made sure he knew exactly what I wanted. I'm so happy I found Deron to play at my wedding! He sang the songs I requested beautifully and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Deron and his band did a phenominal job. They were very accomodating to us (bride and groom) with our special requests. They were very accomodating to all of our guests when they had special requests. Deron played his guitar, solo, during our ceremony and wedding processional. It was perfect, very intimate, exactly how I had pictured it. They did a great job feeling out the crowd for the type of music to be playing. I would recommend Deron and his band for any event that you have.

We found Deron on one of many wedding websites we visited, we emailed him and he was super prompt getting back to us. We went to hear him play-out in downtown St. Augustine, and as soon as we heard him sing we were sold. Not only is he extremely talented, but he is also very professional, personable and probably the nicest person you'll meet. He was so good to us about learning songs that we wanted played and always getting back to us right away. On our wedding day he and his band were awesome. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. We had such a great time during our reception, he knew just the right songs to play. For us, there was no other choice. Deron is the man. Margaret & Andrew

Deron is a wonderful musician. We had seen him play before at a couple places in St. Augustine and in Ponte Vedra and when we decided to have a musician instead of a recording for the ceremony, his style suited what we wanted. The guests loved him and said he and his guitar were perfect for the garden ceremony.

We had booked a musician to play at our outdoor wedding and reception months before the date. Due to a vocal chord injury, he cancelled less than a week before the date... We found Deron days before the date and he was amazing! He was incredibly easy to deal with. The first musician we had was slow to reply to emails or calls and Deron was the opposite. He was efficient and professional. There was a particular song we wanted for out "first dance." Our first musician did not know it but said he would try to learn it. We booked Deron so late that there was no time for him to learn it-- turns out, he already knew it so that wasn't an issue. It was meant to be!
Due to weather issues, we had to change from our outdoor ceremony, to an indoor ceremony... at an entirely different location; originally the ceremony and reception were to be at the same place. He handled the change in circumstances well and set up at both places and did such a great job! The ceremony music was some slow, easy guitar and the reception music got everyone on the dance floor... from the 30 year olds to the 70+ year olds. He was awesome! We had several friends comment on how great he was. I would totally use him again and reccommend him to others as well!
