    Beautiful background music to entertain day guests

    Derek is a lovely man & really enjoys what he does. He provided music at our wedding for the whole day part of our special day, he had no problems transferring his equipment to different rooms throughout the day with nothing being too much trouble. Everyone commented on how lovely the music was during our wedding breakfast & we even had a sing song late afternoon too. Beautiful music with a lovely tone for a wedding. We're so glad we booked Derek for our day 😊

    Derek Brock's reply:

    Thank you so much Corrina! I’m very grateful for your lovely comments and so glad you were happy with my playing. Derek xx

    Brilliant Guitarist

    Derek helped to chose our music for the day and his web site has many examples of the music he can provide.
    He arrived at our venue early and made sure everything was just right.
    His guitar playing during the day was brilliant and everyone made comment on how good he was. He created a happy and relaxed atmosphere and I have no hesitation in totally recommending Derek
