David Ball and Mark Deeks played at our wedding on the 30/12/17. To say they were amazing would be an understatement!! The music was fab and everyone was up on the dance floor from the moment they started. As well as the great music, they are extremely professional to work with - right from booking through to the day, they kept in touch via email, text and via calls!! They were superb in every way and i could not recommend highly enough!! Thank You so much � Jess & Gary xx
My wife and I have been married only a week, but it's taken this long just for me to put into words how exceptional Music Newcastle were at our wedding at Brinkburn Priory. I've known Mark Deeks for a little while and knew from the moment we hired his service that we would be in safe hands, however we, and the rest of our guests, were absolutely blown away by Mark, David Ball and the rest of band. We booked the bespoke service, and probably took the "bespoke" part to its limits, but nothing was ever too much trouble, Louise was always on hand to answer our endless stream of emails and on the night, I think the fact the dance floor was never empty speaks for itself! Although perhaps slightly biased, Music Newcastle is simply superb - all of the musicians were at the top of their game, the organisation and communication was perfect and reassuring and by the end of the night, pretty much every single guest had commented on how they had never heard such an outstanding band at a wedding before. I would recommend Music Newcastle to any one without hesitation for what ever musical requirements, and once again would like to say big thank you to Mark, David and the rest of the guys for making our wedding day truly special!

Mark Deeks, of Music Newcastle, played at our wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast at Jesmond Dene House Hotel on 28 October 2017. He was utterly fantastic and a complete pleasure to work with from day one. We had an inventive consultation with him where we explored the music for our wedding. We ended up with The Killers and Metallica as the main stars of the show! But he was so approachable and open minded, we could have had anything. Mark joined our evening entertainment with the excellent New Sessions band. We can't recommend them highly enough - what a great group of people and what great music. Their rendition of Tenacious D's 'Tribute' made the night. They entertained throughout and engaged with the dancing guests. We loved having them at our wedding, they were simply fantastic. Not forgetting Lou in the office - she always responded to queries promptly and in a friendly manner. We would recommend Music Newcastle to anyone. They are spot on.
We had David Ball and Mark Thompson play as an acoustic duo at our wedding on the 21st of October 2017. Well what can we say other than what an absolute pleasure it was to listen to such talent. We were so excited to have them play on the run up to our wedding and they totally lived up to expectations. Everyone at our wedding couldnt speak more highly of both David and Mark and they all thoroughly enjoyed listening and dancing to the fantastic songs that were played. They really did make the atmosphere at our evening reception so uplifting and special for us and our guests, especially playing our first dance for us which was just amazing. I also have to say the communication from the start was brill, Lou does a fantastic job and was always pleasant via email. Overall a great service and a ridiculously talented acoustic duo which i would recommend to anyone, so thank you once again for making our day even more special! Mr and Mrs Craggs �
Superb service from start to finish. Mark played piano for us during our ceremony and entertained guests until our wedding breakfast. I've never met anyone with such a talent for music. We asked for the BBC cricket theme tune and after hearing it for 10 seconds on YouTube he was able to perfectly recreate what he heard. Utterly outstanding in every way.
Craig and I would like to thank Mark for providing some outstanding music on our wedding day back in July. We're so pleased we had you playing during our meal, our guests all commented on how fantastic Mark was. Totally added to our chilled/fun atmosphere. Thanks again x
Myself and my new wife could not recommend Music Newcastle enough. We've had the pleasure of being very pleased customers but we have also had the chance to work with them due to working in the hospitality industry. They are incredibly professional at everything they do and genuinely care about your day!The choice of music is vast and when that's not enough, they will learn anything they can for you. If you want it, please ask. We did not regret it!We booked Mark and Glen as a duo and all of our guests commented on the quality. The atmosphere was amazing from start to finish.If you are thinking about booking them. Do it.
Thank you to Mark who played during our wedding reception on 26th August at the beautiful Doxford Hall. Extremely talented pianist who can play anything you request!! Highly recommend � Thank you! Love The Rowley's xxx
Mark was amazing at our wedding, every guest commented on how lovely the music was. It was a perfect mix of modern and older music for the grandparents! Set the scene for our wedding at Jesmond Dene house. Would recommend to anyone �
From the first point of contact to the wedding day itself Mark was excellent. Having a pianist play our special tunes on the day was a real privilege. We knew Mark would know exactly what to do and he is a true professional.
Mark played at our reception and throughout our meal at our wedding in May 2017 at Mansion House, Jesmond. You are so talented and were able to play such an eclectic mix of music which we love. Thank you so much we can't recommend you highly enough. Tracy and Stephen
We had the absolute pleasure of having their bespoke band service at our wedding. Every guest commented on how truly unique and talented the band was. They have kept in touch with ourselves from the get go and no request was too much. Mark did a great job of announcing during the night and even got a dance off going. You guys were hands down the best money we spent on our big day and we can't thank you all enough! P.s Dem bones made my dad's life! Thank you again,Mr & Mrs Wright
We had the pleasure of having Music Newcastle supply the music for our special day yesterday and we cannot express how great the experience was! Mark played for our ceremony and meal, Glen and Mark (the acoustic duo) played for our drinks reception, and the Marratones played our evening reception, learning songs we'd requested which made our day complete. The whole process from booking to the big day was very easy, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Music Newcastle's services! Thank you so much!
@[100000612841214:Laura Waller] and I were married on 17th June 2017 at Lumley Castle. The day went so quickly and, as you can imagine (and as often happens with weddings) we were a little behind schedule. No sweat for this duo; @[100000226580034:David Ball] and his accompaniment Mark (not @[701925034:Mark Deeks], the owner of Music Newcastle, in this case) were set up well within time and were waiting for us to start our first dance song. What a fantastic duo and great entertainers through and through. David has an amazing voice and is a fantastic addition to Music Newcastle's variety of artists available. Mark was on hand afterwards to operate the PA system which included tracks we had selected. Hopefully someone can tag him in this review so he gets his just recognition...Thank you very much guys, we will certainly recommend you in the future.
Can't recommend Mark any more highly after playing piano at our wedding breakfast at Jesmond Dene House. Mark really added something to our day and created a special atmosphere. It was a pleasure to deal with Music Newcastle throughout the process - we chose a selection of music from Mark's repertoire and he also learned another six songs for the occasion. Thank you for being such an important part of our big day. Dan and Ash
I have booked Mark a number of times to perform at a venue I work at and I am always impressed with his professionalism and the way he effortlessly interacts with customers. He is talented, reliable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him!
We had the privilege of Mark playing at our recent wedding at Doxford Hall. From the first song it became apparent just how talented Mark is, and our guests loved him adding to our special day. The booking process was pain-free and Mark went the extra mile in working with us to tailor the music to our day, even providing sound bites to my groom's speech. We can't recommend Mark and Music Newcastle enough.
Extra special thanks, Mark,for helping to make our wedding day so very memorable. From our first meeting and all your helpful advice to your very talented playing for us on the day has been truly amazing.You went the 'extra mile' Mark and made our day unique - thanks Anne and Owen.
We are thrilled with how wonderfully Mark played at our wedding at Woodhill Hall on Saturday. We couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere for getting married in and our guests commented on how beautiful the piano sounded during our ceremony and drinks reception. Mark was very friendly and professional and we would highly recommend him! Thank you!
Dear Caroline,We wanted to get in touch with you to say a MASSIVE thank you.Both Martin and I, as well as all of our guests loved your beautiful piano music at our church wedding in Alnwick. We found the music choice was just perfect and blended in very nice into our ceremony. I remember sitting on the chair and thinking how soothing and calming it was. We really appreciated your great service!Thank you so much for all your recommendations and music samples, which certainly helped us choose the right music.We wish you all the best and will certainly recommend you to friends who might get married and are looking for a lovely pianist.With the very best wishes,Kat & Martin
Mark and the choir played at our wedding at Alnwick Gardens during the civil service. What a wonderful job they did! Everyone was so impressed and we got loads of comments about where we'd found them. They made the service absolutely magical and memorable, such a fantastic job. No hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting to make their service beautiful, unique and personal. Thank you so much again guys. Love Priya and Craig
Mark played at our wedding at Linden Hall in October. I can honestly say he was amazing. Everyone commented on how fab he was. His music is beautiful and he goes out of his way to play the kind of music that suit you. It really made our wedding day and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants to bring something special to their big day. Thank you Mark
Mark, you were simply awesome at our wedding. Thank you so much for playing such a large part in making our day perfect. I never doubted that your renditions of our requested songs would be note perfect, but things like writing the music yourself for Third Eye Blind's Motorcycle Driveby, and adding a few extra Ben Folds songs in knowing that both myself and Laura love his music are little touches which you would struggle to get anywhere else. I will certainly be recommending you when and where I can, and hope to see you again at events you are playing in the future.Thank you again!Paul & Laura
Mark played for us on the afternoon of our wedding in Mansion House in Jesmond last month and he was absolutely fabulous. Our daytime guests were dancing and singing before the night time disco even started. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you Mark for giving us such beautiful music for our wedding ceremony! Mark was absolutely magnificent and agreed to play some of our slightly weird requests (very heavy on the Death Cab for Cutie and Arcade Fire at this wedding!) without any hestiation. He's super talented and so professional, I can't recommend him highly enough. (Sorry we started so late!)
We've just booked Mark to play at our wedding. After seeing him at numerous wedding shows we knew we had to book him. He hasnt even played our wedding yet and we're totally impressed by the level of professionalism and service he offers! Greata guy and great musician. Well worth a look!
Absolutely great. We booked Mark to play at my mam's 60th and he was absolutely fab, learning a few very important (if a little odd) pieces that had a lot of sentimental value for us. Everyone loved the music. Thank you very much!
