We met Mark at the White Swan (where we ended up having our wedding) in Alnwick at a wedding event. Him and his team were exceptional from the start to finish. We loved the originality of both Mark and David. We had so many good comments about the music from our guests. It was such a joy, to every so often pick up on our favourite songs throughout the day. Mark actually had some calming words for me just before the ceremony which was appreciated. Nothing was a problem. So just a big thanks to Mark and his team for making our day even more special. Don’t have any doubts and just book these guys, they are absolutely fantastic.
Mark and Gareth were absolutely superb and made our wedding day even more magical. Professional to a tee, friendly, reliable, flexible and above all brilliantly skilled musicians.We couldn't have asked for more and would highly recommend them.
Just returned from honeymoon and reflecting on our wedding at the Grand Hotel Tynemouth on 15.09.18. We booked an all day package of Mark for the ceremony and reception Music, Mark and Gareth Beddard for an acoustic set at the drinks reception and the New Sessions for the evening reception. I can only use the word fantastic from start to finish. The guests truly enjoyed everything and it definitely made the whole day even more special. RegardsJohn and Alison Hancock
From start to finish the guys were amazing! So friendly, got our guests dancing and even managed to play a song requested by one of the guests. Everyone commented on how great they were and loved the dance off at the end! Such great fun and a wonderful way to start off our night before the DJ set!! Couldn’t be happier with Mark and David’s performance 😊 thank you so much!!
We can’t recommend Music Newcastle enough after their fantastic performance at our wedding! There was so much music to choose from and we were also able to request some songs that weren’t on the lists. All of the pieces Mark played sounded even more beautiful than we thought they would. The New Sessions were also brilliant, they got everyone up on the dance floor and all of our guests commented on how perfect everything was! Thank you all so much for making our day even more special.
Thank you so much to Mark for playing at our wedding on Saturday. The whole team are so helpful throughout the process of booking and the music Mark played for us was perfect. I really hope to hear him play again xxx
Amazing from start to finish, Phil was fantastic we felt reassured and supported right from booking. He and Arthur both did a stunning job on the day! Would 100% recommend - a beautiful highlight of our special day which our guests absolutely loved! 💙
Amazing service from start to finish! Booked well in advance for my wedding & they kept in touch the whole way! They were so accommodating with requests and learnt new songs for us! Mark turned up and did everything as planned, he didn’t need to see me on the morning of my wedding and was very organised and efficient! The music was just beautiful. He played me down the isle, through signing our register and out of the service, and then continued to play during our drinks reception! The music was so beautiful I would highly recommend!
Mark played at my daughter's wedding on Friday and I can't recommend him enough. Very polite and professional and an amazing musician the music and play lists were tremendous. Thank you Mark for making my daughter's wedding day extra special.
I met Mark at an Open Day at Ramside Hall for Wedding suppliers and fell in love with the duet (at the time it wasn't David Balls) but we couldn't afford them and so I was gutted. I tried to find another piano and guitar duet but there are not many of them around. Afternoon little luck I moved on toookong into a recommendation of David Ball who had been at a friends wedding by himself... turns out he was brilliant after we went to a bar in Durham to scout him out and stalked him on Facebook! After a quick chat he said he played with Mark and the deal was done. I had the band I wanted at a cost I could afford. These guys were incredible on the night. So many people have asked who they are and I overheard lots of positive comments about in particular Marks keyboard playing skill. In the chaos of our overrun day, I didn't relaise it was them playing until almost the end of my Father - Daughter dance. It was the best version of Queen "You're my best friend" that I've ever heard. Such a special memory to have. They are such nice guys and so reasonably priced! I would recommend them to anyone! We hope to have you again for future big events! Thanks again guys!
A massive thank you to Mark and Gareth who played at our wedding last Saturday. James and I absolutely loved your music along with our guests. We highly recommend Music Newcastle -thank you! Jade and James Turley :)
Mark, David and the gang played at our wedding in May. From start to finish, the music was a highlight and the 6 piece band in the evening brought absolute pure joy to us and all our guests! The flexibility in music style and choice on offer is, I believe, unique. I highly recommend Mark and his extremely talented bunch of musicians for your wedding or event; their professionalism and enthusiasm was second to none. Thank you so, so much Mark, David et al for providing such an enjoyable soundtrack to our perfect day. Brilliant!
The success of our wedding was due in no small degree to Mark and his team. He and a fiddler played traditional Northumbrian music during the drinks reception which attracted a lot of praise. Mark himself played background piano during the wedding breakfast in a superbly discreet manner and then afterwards he and the Mellowtones played two fantastic sets of 'café jazz' which soon had everybody bopping frantically. A terrific contribution to an excellent afternoon and evening. All our guests commented on how wonderful the music was throughout.
Thank you so much Mark and the team for making our special day so spot on - your set lists were amazing and we have had guests continually tell us how amazing you guys were. Thank you so much. Heather and Chris xx
We had music Newcastle the whole of our wedding day and I couldn’t recommend them enough!! Honestly, look no further if you want the perfect day. Totally professional and tailored to your needs. A big thank you to Mark Dave Sam and the guys xx Tracy and Wayne Hallam x
David and Mark played at our wedding last weekend. To say they went above and beyond our expectations simply doesn't do these guys justice. We definitely made the most of the bespoke service and the lads just took it in their stride - loved every single arrangement in the set. I challenge you to find better entertainment for your wedding, it can't be done!Thank you very much, Mr and Mrs Wall
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! Adam & Kay
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!
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
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!)
