“A fantastic pianist. Thanks so much for playing my special event.” (David Miliband, President International Rescue Committee)






“Thank you so much for making our day so special. Every single wedding guest commented on how fantastic and talented you were. Hou made the Black Eyed Peas sound that majestic is beyond me. My bridesmaid Claire blames you solely for making her cry with your rendition of “Firework”.

Piano Player Northumberland“…the most inventive and talented piano player I’ve ever known … the highlight of the whole show for me was Mark’s rendition of “Cocktail Rhapsody”, his own invented treatment of Bohemian Rhapsody. It left the audience in no doubt as to Mark’s versatility and ability. Mark and his keyboard were born to be together! (Pete)

“Mark played piano for two of my birthday parties. He went down a storm on both occasions. The finale was a huge sing-along with him responding to the most eclectic requests from ‘Smoke on the Water’ to Bruce Hornsby and Queen greats. Mark is a true entertainer with a perfect blend of professionalism and fun!” (Susan)

“I can recommend Mark. A lovely part of the wedding reception.” (Heather)

“When you look for a cocktail pianist who can handle a playlist including AC/DC and Metallica you expect to struggle to find one. Not so when you book Mark Deeks …. Mark added the style to the rock soundtrack and really helped start our wedding reception on the right note. Thanks Mark.” (Colin)

Too much talent for one man to handle. Fabulous musical arrangements for both choral and solo singers … good dry sense of humour also a huge plus.” (Sue)
