Many guest gave me "excellent" compliments on Derek. Some people said at times they were not sure if it was him actually singing or was it a record. Outstanding entertainer!

Excellent Entertainer! He arrived early, set up without issue, did several great sets, took requests, his vocals are tremendous, and he had the whole restaurant rocking! People were up dancing, and we have several folks asking us to be sure to book Derek again - which we will! Highly recommended. Bob Bender Borghis Restaurant

Derek Evan was very nice and helpful in his selection of songs for our party He had a lot of people dancing which made our party a big success. Our 70 th birthday party consisted of different age groups His mixture of songs everyone of all ages enjoyed. I had many people ask me for his card for future reference. He was very friendly and he sang along with many of the songs. I selected Derek because of his songs on his site and was not disappointed in my selection. His performance, professionalism, and overall friendliness made me and everyone else very comfortable. I will definitely use Derek Evan for any future parties.

Derek was great. He did a wonderful job. It was very hot and we were outside so there was not much dancing, but everyone enjoyed his singing and he had the right mix of music for the group. Would definitely use him again and/or recommend him to friends.

Derek was exactly what I was looking for. He not only played, and sang 50's music with alacrity, but he was able to accomodate requests for music of any genre and era. I was very pleased with his courtesy, professionalism, talent, and price.

Derek was a hit at our adult birthday party the other night. He obviously enjoys what he does and so did we. Each song was sung beautifully and brought back fond memories for everyone. Derek seems to have perfect pitch, a smooth melodic voice and a range that will leave you begging for more!
