I really cannot say enough good things about Deron! My husband and I decided to have a smaller more intimate wedding and ended up planning everything in only 3 months. We thought it would be nice to have a live musician for the ceremony and cocktail hour. From the beginning, Deron responded so quickly to all of my questions, and even changed around his schedule just so he could be at our wedding.. again we were planning this with short notice! We initially planned to get married on the beach, but hurricane Irma wiped out our initial ceremony location, and Deron was always so flexible on our changes. To top it off, a Nor'easter came through the weekend of our wedding leaving us with basically no beach, and we had to change our location 45 MINUTES before the ceremony start time. Deron still arrived early and was set up like that was where everything was supposed to be from the beginning. After the ceremony, he quickly went to our reception location and was set up before guests arrived. He also learned new songs for us and sang our first dance, mother/son, and father/daughter dances. It was very special to me to have these performed live. He helped me by sending a list of typical songs he does for the ceremony and provided ones I had not thought about. I had so many compliments from our guests who loved listening to him play during the cocktail hour. Deron was honestly the easiest person I worked with in all of my wedding planning, and I didn't even meet him until the day of the wedding! His professionalism, responsiveness, and performance cannot be beat! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a musician to play at their wedding and would love to have him play at future events we have.
Deron and Lu made our wedding reception absolutely wonderful and very special to us. All the guests raved about the music. He kept everyone dancing throughout the evening. We would definitely recommend Deron to anyone else looking for live music for any event or catching him when he is performing at public venues!
Deron and his group provided the perfect experience for our wedding ceremony and reception. The band was very receptive to our requests and getting the details just right. They were right on cue with the timeline, providing a wonderfully smooth performance. At the reception, our guests were dancing to the very end. Overall, the band sounded great and received an out-pouring of compliments from our guests making them one of my favorite things from the wedding.
Deron was amazing! He learned new songs for our ceremony and always answered emails quickly. We received so many compliments on his playing during our cocktail hour as well. I would recommend him 110% to any bride!!
Deron is incredible! He is responsive, professional, and an amazing musician. We wanted more of an acoustic ceremony and he provided just that. He even learned a song we wanted for our exit. We are so grateful he played at our ceremony and would highly recommend him to anyone in the market. He is awesome! Thanks again :)
I cannot say enough good things about Deron. He did a tremendous job; is incredibly responsive to any inquiries; and was a complete professional. He even made the effort to play at our wedding despite Hurricane Irma approaching! If you're looking for a talented musician to play at your wedding, or at any event, Deron is your guy!
Deron was incredibly professional and his music selections were exactly what we envisioned for the wedding.
Deron was fantastic! Response time to emails and questions was immediate. Deron sent suggestions, listened to ideas, went thru our ceremony plan and best of all learned a special song to play for the ceremony and again at the cocktail party. Most importantly, he sounded amazing! The guest loved his sound, he was perfect for our occasion. I would highly recommend. P.S. many of the guest had never heard our song and asked for the original version because they thought it was so beautiful.
Deron did an amazing job at our wedding. Together, he and his band, performed all the songs we requested (including my husband's favorite song by Poison). I strongly recommend Deron and his band. They are extremely talented and organized.
Amazing job!! The music was perfect, the ceremony was made so much more special with our choices beautifully played by Deron. And my family/friends raved about the wonderful cocktail hour!
Deron performed for our daughter's wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was wonderful. He learned three songs which the bride and groom requested, as well as, collaborated with one of their groomsmen from Sweden who sang a song during the wedding ceremony. Deron was extremely professional, responsive, flexible and most importantly, talented. Our wedding guests commented on his great performance. We can't thank him enough for helping to make our celebration so grand. Alisa and Lou Penrod
I HIGHLY recommend Deron, if you want an amazing bad for your wedding, He is incredibly talented and has a diverse playlist. Not only is he an incredibly kind, genuine person, he went out of his way to make sure all of our needs were met and that every guest was having a good time. He and his band were the hit of the wedding. My guests wouldn't stop talking about how great he was! Words can't describe how lucky to feel to have had him play at my wedding. He's awesome!
Where to begin… I first heard of Deron baker through my wedding event planner at The Casa Monica Resort and Spa in Saint Augustine Florida. I had been looking for a unique Trio Band for my wedding on March 11, 2017, and Tessa of the Casa Monica, assured me that Deron Baker was right up my alley. I immediately reached out to Deron and was so happy to hear back from him quickly. He was so courteous and professional, and most importantly he made me feel completely relaxed and comfortable. I felt no stress whatsoever talking with him. I knew at that moment that he was a perfect fit. Deron and his Trio Band played my cocktail hour prior to my reception in the Flagler ballroom. I had an intimate wedding of approximately 50 guests, and all night during the reception, all I heard was how amazing the Trio Band was. The selection of songs they chose to play were absolutely perfect and exactly what I had in mind. I also can't express how special it was for us to walk in, hand and hand, and see and hear Deron and his band playing such a beautiful song as we entered. We hope to book Deron for many future local events. Thank you so much Deron, we look forward to seeing you very soon in and around our beautiful town!
Deron is absolutely amazing all around- performance and personality wise!! My husband and I had the pleasure of having Deron perform for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Deron really makes an effort to ensure everything is flawless. His communication is always timely and working with him is so stress-free. He even took the time to learn how to play a specific song for part of our ceremony! He surpassed our expectations by a long shot!!
Deron did an amazing job at our wedding! When we were looking for a musician for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception we were impressed by his voice and the music on his website. However, he was even better in person! He is extremely talented, organized, responsive and professional. His music is absolutely beautiful. He offered to learn and play any song that we chose. Deron played our first dance song and it turned out amazing, even more beautiful than we expected. He also played the song that my husband chose for the mother-son dance and slowed down the tempo for us at our request. I would highly recommend Deron for your wedding or event! It will be one of the best choices that you make!
Deron was absolutely fabulous! He was friendly, professional, and quick to respond back to our thoughts, questions and needs. He created a perfect atmosphere to our wedding and lived up to everything we were hoping for and more:). My husband, myself and our families enjoyed how Deron could read the crowd and provide a nice blend of music to have a wonderful wedding! Thanks so much Deron!
Deron was so responsive from our initial contacts and accomodating with our requests. He did an amazing job performing during cocktail hour at The White Room. He also sang and played a beautiful rendition of John Legends all of me for our first dance. Our guests loved him and having live entertainment. I would highly recommend deron, he is very talented.
Deron is a consummate professional and an outstanding musician. Performing for both ceremony and reception at our daughter's small destination wedding in the St. Augustine area, we could not have made a better choice. Cris and Jill Traywick Richmond, VA
Deron played his beautiful music at our daughter's wedding welcome party, and again for our other daughter's welcome party and wedding, and at my best friend's wedding. Besides his incredible voice and guitar playing, Deron is very professional and quick to respond to all our questions. We had so many great comments from our guests about his music. When he transitioned into singing the song our daughter chose to walk down the aisle, it could not have been more perfect. We love Deron's music and highly recommend booking him for any event.
Deron was an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I love live music and have always wanted to incorporate it into my wedding and I couldn't have picked a better musician. He was very professional and responsive from the get go. I had several special requests for my ceremony music and he learned each one of them, including accompanying my cousin who is an opera singer. As the bride things from the wedding tend to be a blur but I remember hearing my special requests before and while I was walking down the aisle and thinking "he nailed it!" Deron also played during my cocktail hour and my guests raved about him. If you're looking for the perfect musician to add that special touch to your wedding, stop here with your search, Deron is the ONE to hire! He is professional, flexible, patient and most importantly EXTREMELY talented!
Wedding ceremony and cocktail hour!Reviewed on 11/20/2015 Brittany C
Deron provided beautiful music during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He sounded amazing! He sang "A thousand years" as I walked down the isle and it was perfect. He was great with communication throughout the entire planning process! He emails back very promptly and is knowledgable on music, songs to play and weddings! I didn't know a lot about how the ceremony music should flow but Deron took care of everything and it sounded wonderful! I still have guest telling me how great it was! Thank you Deron for making our day so special! My husband and I highly recommend him!! :)
Professional and super talented!Reviewed on 8/22/2015 Amanda V
Deron is amazing! From the get go, he was responsive, organized, helpful, and willing to go above and beyond without being pushy. He answered all of our questions, offered to learn any songs we might like, provided suggestions and recommendations, and overall made the process extremely easy. On the day of our wedding, he was early, self-sufficient in setting up, extremely professional, and laidback. Our guests absolutely loved him -- as did we. He has an incredible voice and high-end equipment. We originally had requested him for our ceremony and cocktail hour only. Having Deron stay throughout our reception was one of the best decisions we made. Deron is a true professional with an amazing talent. We couldn't have enjoyed him more!
Deron Rocks!Reviewed on 8/03/2015 Bruce S
We just want to thank Deron for the amazing job he did with the music/guitar playing at our June 13, 2015, wedding ceremony! We received so many positive comments on how well he played, the song selections, his laid-back style and awesome voice. Deron was a pleasure to work with and handled himself like a true professional. Many thanks to Deron for making our special day a very memorial one!
The perfect musician for any wedding in St. Augustine!Reviewed on 4/27/2015 Robert G
I don't think words can describe how AMAZING the music was at our wedding, but we'll give it a shot here. We had a good feeling about Deron from the moment we met him...and all the great things we heard about him were true! He took our idea and turned it into reality, but even better than we could have imagined it. His warm personality and artistic style is a perfect combination for any wedding. If we renew our vows in the next decade or two, I want Deron to create another masterpiece for us. I would also like to give a big shout out to his music partner, Lu. The 2 of them together were absolutely masterful. Worth every penny and then some!
Beautiful Music for a Beautiful DayReviewed on 4/17/2015 Kim R
My husband and I were looking for a very specific sound for our ceremony and cocktail reception music...and as soon as I heard Deron's music, I knew we found what we were looking for. Deron was super responsive from the moment I reached out to him, and was more than flexible to work with our budget as well song choices. He learned two songs for us that were not on his normal song list (Ho Hey and Moon River) and delivered them beautifully. He was prompt, very professional and just a breeze to work with. My only regret is that I wasn't around longer during the cocktail hour to get to enjoy his music more.

One of the most rewarding moments of my life is when a bride or groom comes to me after the wedding and tells me how much the music made their wedding all that they ever imagined. How happy they are about their choice in hiring me, makes me very happy! I am honored to provide that service for such a special and meaningful event. I have been performing for weddings for about 12 years and it is definitely the most fulfilling work for me! It is truly a blessing to be a part of a couples first day together as husband and wife!
