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... Read More 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 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... Read More 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 and his band were FABULOUS! We got the most compliments on the flowers and the band. Deron was responsive and played every song I had sent him for request.

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!
