Scott - This is Kelly Dougherty. Sebastian and I are so happy we chose you to play during our wedding celebration on 7/15/2017 at Lambeau Field. You are so talented and a true delight. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted and you were a big part of that. You are amazing! Thank you for being so easy to work with too. You are a true artist! I hope our paths cross again soon. I will definitely contact you for my next big event! If anyone is reading this, be sure to book Scott! Don’t hesitate!

To whom it may concern:

Scott Dercks did an amazing job playing in the exhibit hall for our Annual Conference. It was really nice to have the smooth sounds of his guitar filling up the hall while our attendees and exhibitors did their business. Scott charges a very reasonable price. He was on time and brought all of his own equipment. He loves what he does and so will you. He knows many of today’s and yesterday’s favorite songs and it made for a rich and sophisticated business environment. We would not hesitate to bring him back for a future event.

Daniel Collins, Sonic M.D. says:

Excellent work last Friday at the Green Bay Film Festival. Scott joined up with Randi Fay and Limited Edition, playing for the opening night Gala. I should also mention that Scott was a last minute addition, had no chance to rehearse with the group, and nobody listening would have known it. Impressive, considering that the show included several “Limited Edition” originals.

scott says:

Thanks, Daniel. It did go well and it was great to get to play with the group and meet some new musicians.
Being able to make my addition as seamless as possible is something I strive for. (and almost always accomplish)
Thanks again for the kind words.
All My Best,
Scott

Scott preformed beautifully for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was extremely flexible and open to accommodating our playlist requests. We couldn’t be happier with his performance and would recommend Scott to anyone who is looking for a wedding musician! Thank you, Scott! -Erin & Charlie Driscoll

Joni Kruse says:

I thank you so much for your bravery. The weather was treacherous. I was really nervous and preoccupied dealing with my mom and worrying about the comfort of everyone else. So I was relieved that you stayed and provided such nice music. Thank you and I will keep you in mind for any other needs we may have and will be happy to refer. Joni

Thank you so much for everything ! The music was wonderful !!!! I received a lot of compliments. My sister-in-law’s father (Russ Peterson) told me at the reception that he knows you as well, so that was really cool. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is planning an event !!! Thanks again for making it all go so smoothly—I was so stressed and you make it all go so well . Thanks , Amber

Hey Scott,
Thank you for your talent and great vibe/energy on Saturday. I also appreciate your help with teardown.
It was very cool when you played solo while we were re-setting the gear. Your sound and arrangements were beautiful, Bro!
I love it when a player takes the initiative to keep the energy of the party happening.
Glad you enjoyed it as well. We’ll hopefully do it again soon.
Yea my Bro!

Hi Scott, Yes I was EXTREMELY happy with the music and also how friendly you were with the children. My neice Ella is quite the card and I saw that she was pestering you in some pictures. :-) I also saw a picture with Logan sitting on your stool and Ella standing next to him. Thank you so much! Everyone loved the music and you will come highly recommended from me. I also heard that you found a fellow fisherman in my Uncle Lloyd. :-)

Thanks again!

God Bless you Scott. I admire you for being able to live off your art. I certainly cannot, but then, you are miles beyond me in talent. And bravery. And yes, I am lucky I have nobody to support either.”

I enjoyed reading your info. Peace, justice, and the preservation of Mother earth”, very cool Scott!
Again, just wanted to say how much I enjoyed singing with you at Jacob’s funeral. Your arrangements and playing were beautiful!

Hi Scott!
It has been a long time since I have been out to see you and your
enjoyable shows! Imagine my surprise to see you play at Spirit Garage a
several weeks ago, which has been my home church for a few years now. Dan
is a great guy, and I love how the environment nurtures artists, and those
in need of less formal worship options. You sounded great, but I didn’t
come up to say hello, as you looked busy, and I didn’t want to impose. I
hope you would be willing to come play again at Spirit Garage…we all
enjoyed it so much!

With warmest regards,

Elizabeth

Thank you also, Scott, for playing for us on Christmas Eve. I especially appreciated it
when you gave me a little background music during some of the spoken parts. That really
added to the experience, I believe. Your solo piece, “A Child Is Born” was beautiful. I
didn’t take the opportunity to tell you that because I was so distracted with my oldest
daughter, who has separated herself from our family, showing up.
Anyway, it would be great to do something like that again sometime, especially since we’ve
had a crack at it now. I hope you have a great and blessed new year!
In Christ,

Scott,

You did a wonderful job. We don’t have any events coming up but will definitely keep you in mind. Our daughter isn’t devoloping a new skating program just now but I’ll let you know if it works out for her to skate to your music in the future. Feel free to use us as a reference if that ever helps. Take care.

Scott,
Sorry for the late response, but we just got back from our honeymoon earlier this week and have been trying to readjust to the real world again. Your playing was amazing and your talent pushed our wedding up a notch on the awesome scale. Thanks for everything, thanks for the help with the microphones, thanks for toughing out the cold weather. Your track record basically speaks for itself, but if you ever need a reference let me know.

It was a pleasure to work with you Scott; thanks for rolling with the scene. Many people, including the bride and groom, remarked about your terrific playing.

The wedding was lovely with the exception of the abominable DJ. He kept it down and suitable through dinner and then cranked it up louder by the hour. I like to dance, but it was impossible to have a conversation. I dread all DJ events.

It was my good fortune to have been given your number; it was the perfect fit for the setting - but I like working with guitar in any setting.

I wish you lots of work and will keep you in mind for other stuff and/or others than are looking for a music contact.

Scott,

Thanks so much for the classy touch you brought to Sean and Staci’s special day. I loved the serious, yet light-hearted toone of the ceremony and I think you ‘read’ the event perfectly. We had an absolutely PERFECT day and so much fun at the reception!

And yes, I will keep you in mind for future opportunities.

Regards,

Susan

Scott:

Please forgive us for not being in contact with you sooner. Our entire
family is so grateful that we were able to locate you and that you were
able to be such a memorable part of Jake’s celebration of life. Your
musical talent, the ability to improvise during the celebration and to so
wonderfully connect with Brian Kinney’s vocals, having met him only 30
minutes earlier created a life long memory for us.

We know that Jake was smiling and playing along with you. We also know
that he would have been extremely proud to have shared a fishing boat with
you.

We miss him so much and each day does not go by without someone or
something reminding us of what he gave us in the 31 years he blessed us
with his presence.

We feel that it is important for you to know that you provide a
participation and involvement musically that cannot be explained but only
appreciated.

Thank you from the family of Jake Reding.

Leon and Scott

Please pass on to the band a huge thank you for great music and entertainment at my birthday party!

You guys kicked major ass!

Everyone came up to me and the first thing out of their mouths was “Uebler, where in the hell did you find this band?”

The second question was “Where and when do they play next?” (Then they wished me a happy birthday.)

You have gained a lot of fans that hopefully will start showing at your shows.

Randy and Kelley enjoyed the music and their friends were wowed with you guys!!

Needless to say, the band was a great hit!

Everyone seemed to have fun and also commented that the band looked like they had fun too.

Leon, thanks for accommodating the extra lady singers for me and requests- it added even more to a fabulous party.

Deb enjoyed every song (and that is important to me.)

(There is already talk to have a party/fundraiser next January at the same place, same food and most importantly the same band!)

(They will probably have a date this month for next year’s party!)

Again, thanks for making this the best birthday party that I have ever had!

Rick and Deb

Hi Scott,

I just wanted to send you a quick note and say it was a pleasure to
both watch you play, and to talk with you afterward at the Spirit
Garage.

I felt for some time that I need a mentor/teacher at this point in my
“career”. Someone that can help me grow as a guitarist, performing
artist, and as a professional.

So I am very interested in taking lessons from you.

What are your rates, by the way?

Would you be interested in doing Saturday morning/afternoon lessons?
I am going on vacation to Arizona next week from the 15th through the
23rd. But could start them Saturday the 30th (Unless my band UZZA is
in the Studio).

Chico Harris commented on your status:

“Scott Dercks did an amazing job subbing for JT last evening. Got Ghost? call Ghostbusters, got a gig and
need a bass player or guitarist? call Scott Dercks.

Thanks Bro

scott says:

Scott,I am so honored that you replied to me regarding the possibility of joining us in this venue. I am enthralled by your guitar playing capabilities and believe your style would be the perfect fit to this music endeavor—you’ve got that pure Bread—James Griffin sound I’ve been looking for. “we are not worthy” my friend-I hope we can be!! I will call you later today to discuss. just wondering if you know Steven Gores-premier music? He has agreed to be the keyboard player and just think you two may have crossed at some time-he is an excellent artist and has five cd’s to his name, all excellent. I am very excited to have the chance to speak with you today. is there a time you would prefer I call?

thanks so much for your reply and I look forward to speaking with you.

Scott—here’s a nice note from Carrie Lee…
Subject: Thank you!!
I just wanted to let you know that Scott and the other two players of the Jazz Trio did a FANTASTIC job at my wedding reception on August 21st, in Ottertail MN. My husband and I got so many complements on how wonderful the Jazz Trio sounded. It truly set the mood for the perfect night. Our fist dance went beautifully from their end. We where very nervous and made small mistakes from ours. If you would pass along extra thanks to the guys it would be very much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Carrie (Lee) McBride

Scott was fantastic!! We did not give him very much direction but he took what we gave him and added to it…thus making our ceremony very beautiful! He was such an integral part of our ceremony. He played beautifully! I am happy that we choose him. His years of experience shine through his music and through his professionalism. Thanks Scott!!

Scott played 3 songs from one of my favorite movies, “Love Actually,” during our wedding ceremony on February 28, 2009 at the Como Park Conservatory…it was wonderful! He was professional, easy to work with, and willing to learn new music. Everything was perfect. Thank you Scott!!!

Scott played Hendrix’s “Little Wing” as I walked down the eisle at my wedding—-And it was perfect! He met with me beforehand and we spoke about what I wanted. He took the time to understand my vision, and executed it flawlessly. Scott was a pleasure to work with, and I very highly recommend him.

Scott,

You did an excellent job! I had compliments from many. My son was so worried he was the only one dancing towards 9:30 and I explained that we had already discussed that since I have a bit of an older crowd, it was not going to be a lot of all night dancing as you see with people in their twenties and a dance floor at other types of receptions. I will recommend you to anyone looking for tasteful, wonderful music for their wedding.
