Fantastic guy, music was perfect! We had music in the church whilst I walked up the aisle and while we signed the register - plus at the drinks reception. We would highly recommend Derek and he is such a lovely guy -
Thank you Sian and Michael Byrne x
Derek played our wedding 24/6/16 what an absolute gentleman and amazing musician.
Genuinely amazing. Everyone commented on how good he was and just how talented he is.
Can't thank him enough for helping make our special day amazing.
Who Is Derek?
A highly experienced and respected instrumental guitarist I specialize in providing music for your special event to include weddings, anniversaries, dinner parties and other formal occasions.
Having played in a band for 20 years, I made the decision to break away in order to further develop my own unique style and to play as a solo guitarist.
The result is an impressive list of satisfied customers including the Regency Hyatt Hotel, the Quality Hotel Group, Coombe Abbey, the Hanover Hotel Group and the Belfry at Sutton Coldfield to name but a few. In addition I have played at numerous weddings, functions and corporate events and have held no less than 9 long term residency positions within hotels and restaurants throughout the Midlands. On occasion my reputation has led to me playing in Spain, Belgium and the Canary islands.
